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

Fifth Day of Spring

Just a few shots to show what our spring is like this year. The blower will toss the snow right over the play fort.
There is still the better part of three feet in the fields, and it is starting to compact, but very slowly.
How long will it take this deck pile to melt on the north side?
The garden is not quite ready for digging yet.Posted by Picasa

I'm amazed every time I look at your pictures. I can't even imagine having that much snow around!

I imagine it will take quite a while to melt! Nothing would survive in that garden,lol. How long before you see grass? Wishing you all warm breezes and sunshine soon! Blessings jane

Oh sometime after that mound o' snow melts, please take a picture of your deck! It looks really neat! (sending warm winds your way!)

Spring to me means...no snow!! I do hope yours melts soon. We are having a bit of a cold snap after several days of warm weather. Spending the day by the wood stove.

Spring is here in SW WA but it is wet. It rained yesterday a steady cold rain. I wonder if we will warm up at all this spring. Great photos!

Am I happy to find your active place. You have made me miss seeing the horses romping in the corral and the chickens sharing their eggs. Your GrandLoves are sure loving the snow blocks. and your dogs, gotta loveum. What I'd give to have animals again on our property. Come on over for a visit. I'm your latest follower...yes!

We still have ample snow, too, but it is melting.

Ian,
Bless your heart!! I am praying for all of you.
I hope and pray that all of you are doing OK.
It seems like an endless Ice Age with so much snow, instead of a lovely Spring Time with fresh green grass all around.
It must be very hard to survive under this weather condition. I know, I won't survive, for I'll die really fast in cold weather like that. Long ago, I visited Canada once during the cold season, and I was freezing to death in the streets. I don't know how I could have survived there, if helpers and the Lord wouldn't have brought me up to safety inside a warm home. Ian please, try to keep warm as much as possible with your 2 dogs, horses, and all your beloved ones. If you need any help, please, don't hesitate to ask for it. Your horses look very cold out there. Your dog Brooklyn is having a hard time climbing up the steps in the snow. Poor guy... I don't see Boots around. Is Boots doing OK?? I wonder. Will you post his new pics?
I follow your amazing blog. I am praying for all of you, and for a warmer weather to arrive soon in your place. Take care, Ian. God bless!!
Starry Dawn.

Nope, that doesn't look like spring to me. :)

Springtime! You've got to kidding me! What ever happened to global warming? Where is Al Gore when we really need him?
