Ice storms are beautiful to look at from inside a warm home with a cozy fireplace. :)
Not nearly as nice when one is outside and trying to care for the critters and stay somewhat warm. :/
However, I did want to share some of the pictures taken yesterday morning. We received several inches of drizzle and freezing rain starting Friday afternoon. The bad weather continued throughout the day Saturday and into early Sunday morning, when all of this was topped off with a lovely dusting of snow! It warmed up a tiny bit Sunday, but then the temperature started heading down. As I write this we are currently at 13 degrees and dropping.
Sorry... not much time to visit with ya'll right now as we are heading out to try to tie the trees back up. Then off to break ice in the water tubs, haul hay, feed everyone, milk the cow and goat, and finish up the chores. :)
and Happy Holidays
