We got heavy snow last night but it was falling on warm and wet ground so it didn't build up but to about 3 inches and that was hard enough to walk on at first light.
Nice to look at but I was glad to see it start melting after the sun got up good.
I just left Dusty over at the stable today as the grass was covered and he seemed happy to eat hay all day.
The boys got lots of hay and grain today.
Brought over a couple wheelbarrow loads of straw and put it in the calf house as after heavy rain and now snow, the place was getting to be a mess.
By late afternoon the green was reappearing and the water was flowing again everywhere. This has been a wet week.
Debbie and I gave Dusty more hay this afternoon and then walked up the trail and had to go around a few fallen trees so I will have to do some wood cutting.
The roads are mostly clean with a little ice here and there in shade areas.
