Sky Red at Night...

Sky red at night...sailor's delight!  Sky red in the morning...sailors take warning!

This is the sky out my west kitchen window at suppertime's red enough for me...

I'm sure most of you have heard that saying...I sure hope it's true!

This morning started out warm and humid, with rain showers.  We had all the fans running in the barn. 

 I was just telling Jim this morning how I'm so looking forward to the day when we don't have to run any fans in the barn.  They make so much noise, and I have to admit that we are both losing some hearing!  (today we went out for a lunch date, and one of us...I won't say who...couldn't even hear the server as she took our order!!)

So...after a rainy morning and dreary, windy afternoon, the temperatures dropped down into the high fifties, and we turned all the fans OFF in the barn for evening milking. 

It was blissfully quiet!

  1. I totally understand the annoyance of fans in the background. I'm glad it has cooled off for you. I'm surprised, my sister just said it froze out by Sioux Falls and I have yet to see a freeze here. That is amazing.

  2. Well Alica we had a red sky last night and guess what? My Hero was scraping the frost off his window this morning.Burr cold outside I went for a frosty walk. I guess winter is inevitable.
    I am happy about your fans. B

  3. So glad you're enjoying some cool and quiet!

  4. Ohh i so know what you mean! i always think something is wrong after the summer cause i don't hear nothing in the barn.... and then i see the fans not running and i know there is nothing wrong it is just silence cause the fans are not runnning....



I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
