So it snowed all day yesterday.. winds throughout the night were anywhere from 40 to 50 km an hour. Conditions were white out. Blury.. So we were moving animals as some wouldn't go in the shelter. Yup.. chasing cows through bush.. LMAO

Opened the sick pen up to the alpacas and moved them in there... LOL.. Was an interesting night. When winter comes a knocking it doesn't enter gracefully... it enters with a pounding.

Now we are digging ourselves out. The drifts have blocked most of the gates. So hubby is clearing with the quad. In order to feed the goats and pigs. We had to shovel their entrance and part of their pen. Cause when they stepped out of their barn.. LOL. all you seen was horns they were buried in the snow... lol.....

My pyrs.. Love it.. Love the snow. Love the cold... They were running around playing. Last night I went to check on them. Do you think they were in their nice warm snug dog houses. Nope.. They were playing in the blizzard.. Sadie did help bring the cows in.. cause chasing them around the bush with a bucket in a blizzard wasn't my highlight of the evening.. LOL

oh my,

I totally forgot to tell you about Bosco.. LOL.. He has to be penned because of all the christmas decorations.. He thinks the blow ups are his personal toys.

So we bring him in at night in his kennel. This morning letting him outside. He was so mad.. He couldn't find his bunny ( he has this stuffed rabbit that he has to take every where with him including his blanket) Well they were burried in snow. He was digging and digging and barking and barking) It looked like he lost his siblings in an avalachane and he was trying to save him. THe look on his face he was in distress. When he finally found his bunny.. He threw it up in the air... Prancing and dancing.. again.. LOL

Isn't it awful, I had to shovel to get my dogs out the house this morning. The barn was the same, south end completely blocked by a 4 foot drift...good thing I have doors at both ends. The corals are drifted in a lot...and it's still blowing. Should be an interesting morning tomorrow, again. Evil or Very Mad

I love snow actually. I love it the month of December. I love to play in it with the kids and also riding in it with my ATV.
After the new year begins I am ready for sunshine and spring...ha ha

It is cold here, but too cold to snow right now I believe.

That looks like dry snow to me Pooper.

I would rather have the wet snow that piles up rather than the dry snow that seems to come with the cold temperatures and the damn wind.

Yes it is dry snow and drifts a lot, we have one in the tree line that is about 8 feet tall. Not taking my camera out in these temperatures...it'll freeze. Smile Smile Smile

Keep it under your arm pit or between your legs.

I was just thinking that the row of trees in your first picture was a nice place to put some Christmas lights and then I thought oopsy, wrong person...lol... :lol:

Pooper the snow is beautiful I wouldn't mind having some snow if it could stay in the 80s .
We had a 3 day cold spell here, rain got down in the 40s wind blowing but were back to 70s and 80s now.
Last night was beautiful here warm no bugs I stayed out playing with the dogs and doing Laundry until almost 9 just to pretty to be shut up in the house .
