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

January 17, 2013

Yep, More of the Same!

Unfortunately when we get record warm days, we usually get a snow dump to go with it. 

 Remind me to clean off the truck before going to A&W for coffee tomorrow morning. I might get a ticket otherwise. The snow fall replaced some of the level that compacted yesterday.


Biz kind of takes it all in stride.

 For mid January we are accumulating a lot of snow. It should make for a soggy spring.

All the paths had to be shoveled out again. The forecast for this evening is rain. Did you know that rain is a four letter word? At least at this time of year! Alpine and Tucker are enjoying their loaner blankets. Biz managed to get hers off, somehow.
 Boots is still taking his herding duties seriously. Biz almost tagged him with both hind feet when he slipped in the snow on a full charge.
 Alpine, iced up, but toasty warm under the blanket.
 Three hours of plowing, snow blowing and scooping and things are back to normal, whatever that is around the Acreage.
Think warm, stay warm, and keep the road between the tires!

Now what nasty cop would ticket you for snow on your truck??? I was in the truck with my son over the holidays, he had cleaned off the windows but not the roof, all of a sudden downtown the snow all slid forward...should have seen some of the laughter we caused!
Yep, more of the same here too.

However bothersome, the snow does make for some beautiful scenery!
