Most of the snow has melted and now they are calling for really cold over the next few days.
I went across the creek this morning to get good quality firewood this morning and the creek still doesn't have ice.
The ice and snow are still on the trail and it appears that a lot of small animals are using my bridge to cross.
Parked the wood out in the sun and let it melt the ice and dry off some before bringing it inside.
Nice weather, I was able to get through all the mud and bring 4 wheelbarrow loads of manure over to the garden from the stable yesterday.
Went over to the stable this afternoon to put out the hay for tonight and found the kitty asleep in the sun. Yesterday she was buried and I happened to see white before I started forking the hay. She won't move until the last second.
Opened up one of my barrels of silage and took it over for the calves. Mixed in some of their fermented corn to get them used to it. I was surprised at how good it smelled, kind of a sweet pickle smell.
Houdini says this stuff is good!
Went over to tractor supply and got more cracked corn for the chickens and then to DQ to use the internet.
