Let It Snow

For the first time in three years we had measurable winter precipitation at the farm that stayed on the ground for a couple of days. We had one morning last winter where we had snow on the ground for less than two hours, but otherwise we have missed all snow chances the last few years. That changed Friday morning and we had maybe an inch of snow.  The horses were excited, Carter was thrilled, the adults were briefly excited and then ready for the snow to melt. Carter made snow angels and finally got to ride on his sled for the first time. The horses had no idea what to make of Carter being pulled on his sled by the Kubota and there was a lot of stopping and staring.

As of this afternoon our snow is 75% melted, and there remains only a dusting on the ground in the shaded areas. The last of the snow will melt tomorrow. It was fun while it lasted.


 I took these pictures Friday morning while it was still snowing; by Friday afternoon the snow had completely melted off the driveway
