White Christmas

So the rain switched over to snow last night - lots of snow. We got stuck under a small heavy band of snow that dropped just shy of 6 inches on us. To the west, a small town got 9 inches. North 20 miles they had 1 inch.
So this morning, Simmey opened his presents.

A turtle and a bear -Score!
Afterwards, I went to check on how things had fared in the holler .

The greenhouse held up really well

The veggie beds looked pretty neat under thier blanket of snow.
So I headed on down to the pasture to check on the chickens and the pups. Our driveway is steep and long - around 200 meters. So we'll be hoofing it up and down the hill for a while.

The pups seemed to really be enjoying the snow. Their white coats were pretty difficult to spot surrounded by all the snow. They were happy to see me and even happier to have some food. I could see little bits of cedar needles in thier coats from the cedar groves they sheltered in overnight.


  1. Glad you all had a beautiful white Christmas and definitely good time with your family!

  2. We had a great Xtmas Stephen. The snow forced me to stay inside and relax over the long weekend. I got a lot of time in playing and wrestling with my son. It was memorable. Hope that yours was just as great if not better!
