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

April 2, 2012

No April Fool's Joke!

This was the view out the kitchen window at 8:00 am April 1.  All in all we got about 10 cm of very wet and heavy snow. It was so heavy, I broke a bracket on the plow blade. Oh well, spring in Alberta. What can you expect?

The horses were very wet and miserable. The only thing that cheered them up was extra food.

Stay warm, stay dry and think GREEN!

Green is good!

we certainly did have a nicer April 1st than yours, but you know what?...I think I would take a little moisture right about now. Although the cold, NO, as we have fruit trees already budding blossoming and leaves springing on trees. This is crazy!! We are lucky if we can plant a tomato by late May and this year, I actually bought tomato plants this weekend and am thinking I might even set them!! CRAZY!! The nights hardly drop below 38 but we do need some April Showers. I have to look closer at where your located. Seems we get alot of our WET weather from the Northwest, and whatever Montana is doing, it'll be here in a day or two.
We've been breaking records almost every week all Winter now Spring long. Nuts!

Does it ever stop coming down? I wonder how people survived there without today's technology. Heck, I don't know how you survive there today!!! Burr!!!

Hopefully the freeze will kill off some ticks - nasty buggers those!
