These are good shots to start with because they show perfectly just how fed up Wilson is with all the snow. He's sort of marooned in the front yard, unwilling to go any further. I think we're all a overwhelmed with the snow this year, but most of us don't have to wear big bulky snowsuits and mittens that we can't get our thumbs in just right, or have 1.5 foot long legs.
As I write this I can see the freezing rain hitting the windows and having gone over for chores tonight, I'm doubtful it will make much of a dent in the snow we got today. Whew. It really came down from about 2 o'clock until it turned to freezing rain this evening at about 7:30. We will see what tonight and tomorrow brings, but they're calling for 'another weather system' on Monday and Tuesday. No rest for the wicked. Here are some shots of our back yard today.
It's also true that I wish I could post more often than I do. I apologize if anyone who has been reading, is sorely disappointed that these days you're getting more pictures from home and less ag-related commentary. Don't despair! I'm keeping up to the ag-related stuff (like a crazy article I read today about a new bacterial pathogen related to GMO soybeans that is starting to show increased abortions in dairy cattle- yikes!), it's just tough to find/make the time to post it. I've been meaning to include this link to a Farmers Tribute that has been circulating my Facebook lately. It might be the residual hormones of post-pregnancy, but it pulls at my heart strings and makes me pretty proud of where I came from and what I'm working on for the next generation. Evidently, some of the pictures are for a specific farmer, but the content is for all farmers. (Bruce, I think you may especially enjoy it.)
I'll leave on a high note of two kids actually enjoying the snow. It's only February so we might as well settle in and enjoy the snowy ride.
