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

Winter Hit!

This is what we woke up to today! No, it's not snow , but a very heavy frost. The temperature went from        -5C (+22F) in the daytime to -23C (-5F) overnight, knocking all the moisture out of the air. It was very pretty and lasted most of the day.
The picture of this poplar tree shows the hoar frost. When the sun finally came out and loosened it, it was like a mini snow fall under the trees. The downside of the beauty was, it made me 10 minutes late for the Old Boys Coffee Club at Timmies. It's tough stuff to scrape off the windshield.
I took advantage of the cold  to light up pile number 12 for the year. There is more than one way to stay warm!
