Snow!! Snowpocalypse 2013
Night was enjoying the snow :)
So was Tehya
And Jewel - notice Zack in his orange jacket on the swingset:
We had a pre-snow storm from Wednesday night into Thursday morning. That dumped about 3 inches on our farm. Then around noon on Thursday the real snow storm started. I took these pictures around 4 p.m., which they said would be the middle of the storm (meaning we have this much more to go yet!).
I cleared off this table last night before the pre-storm, so here is the accumlutation of the pre-snow storm and half way through the real snow storm:
It was at about half a milk jug. I expect by morning it will be 3/4 of a milk jug deep.
I am predicting that by morning, I will be shoveling snow to get out my door. I would say that farm chores will start with me shoveling trails before we can even start getting the animals food.
The alpacas will hunker down during the storm. Some of them choose to go inside the barn, others like to cush outside. They will be toasty warm with their warm fiber.
