Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

January 7, 2011

Here it comes!

The forecast today from three different sources finally agree on what is going to happen, how much and when! They are all saying "SNOW", about 10 to 20 cm today and another 10 to 20 cm tomorrow. That means that we could end up with a grand total of 40 cm, or 16 inches of snow. Somehow I believe them this time. It started coming down heavy at 10:00 am and the visibility is rapidly getting down to 100 yards.

Fortunately, this morning, a friend gave me a bag of old Harrowsmith magazines so I should be set for a while.

In the meantime, don't expect any photos as things are very white and blank.

This is one of the days where the horses will get fed, the chickens will get fed, and not much else will happen. Elaine has a honey do list that will take up about an hour or so. Other than that, I will be found hibernating for the next two days.

Hot chocolate, a good book, and a dog on my feet. Life is good on the Acreage!

I like your attitude! We're supposed to get unseasonably cold temps next week here in Texas. Highs in the 30s; Lows in the teens. That's plenty cold for us, but at least no ice or snow predicted with it. :)

Stay warm! I love the way you will relax during your hibernation. :)

There are many things I think I would enjoy about your country. Many, many actually...

There is one thing that would prevent me from ever living there... LOL your weather! I would surely freeze to death without a doubt!

Stay warm!

Been snowing all day here in Kentucky. I did much the same. Kept a fire in the wood stove, read a book and had dogs on my feet...and a little on on my chest. A great day.

This would be a good time to play with that recipe!

Stay warm.
