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

October 12, 2012

One thing about a good snowstorm is that things are so nice and clean afterwards
 The trees that did not lose their leaves are very heavy and nasty to brush against. I had to shake our Mayberry,  apple and other trees because the branches were right at the break point. The raspberry bushes were flattened.
 It's tough going through the denser part of the Acreage.
 This gives you an idea of how sticky the snow was.
 The horses have been using the old road quite a bit looking for food. Alas, there is none, and winter feeding has started.
 Boots doesn't seem to mind the snow, except that Brooklyn appears to have taken over his dog house. Hopefull, they will learn to share, or I will have to add an addition.
It was fortunate that the onions were drying in the garage out of the snow and -7C (19.4F) temperature. Half are now safely stored in the pantry. The other half will likely be given away.
All in all, not a bad day!

That snow really does look heavy. Do you typically get snow this early? Last October we had a few inches of snow (actually the ONLY snow we had all winter!!) and it was so heavy on the branches that still had leaves, that lots of limbs came down and lots were without power.

And your neck of the woods look amzingly fairytail like. I always love the sound of the world when the snow fell.

Do have a happy warm blessed weekend my friend.
Hugs coming your way to keep you warm. Bye Dagmar

Isn't it funny how someone else's snow looks like a winter wonderland?
