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

Once Again We Get the Dump!

Last night it appeared on the weather forecast that we would be on the edge of another storm. It started snowing yesterday and is supposed to continue until late Tuesday.

The wizards on TV are saying another 10 to 20 cm (6 to 8 inches) is due. I can't quite figure this as all around us is expecting 20 to 30cm (8 to 12 inches). I guess weather forecasting is still an art, trying to be a science.
 The horses take it in stride and aren't as miserable as they look
Biz is probably the exception. Fortunately, I had one horse treat in my pocket. That seemed to revive her a bit.

 Alpine was totally ignoring me, until she saw Biz get a treat.

Boots had the right idea. Take a nap in the hay shelter.

The area roads are a mess, but , I don't have to go anywhere until Wednesday. It may take that long to shovel out!

Stay warm.

I think your blog is one of the few places I still see snow. We were supposed to get a bit last night, but we barely had a flake. BTW, people kept inquiring about my name, so I let go of the Farmchick!

It is really frustrating to get so much snow so late in the year. Oh well, the water will help this summer.

We are enjoying a few days of warmth, then back into the deep freeze.

Boots is an inspiration :-)) I'm glad the horses aren't as miserable as they look - i suppose their coats keep them warm, but it makes me shiver!

Oh boy, that does look freezing cold. Hope it warms up soon!

Very nice photos! Last year we received so much snow I thought we would never melt out. This year we have recvd less than 6 inches. A very mild winter which worries me, it hasnt been cold enough or long enough to kill all the bad bugs.
