Ready or not, here comes the first snowfall of the season...
...and it's gonna be a be a DOOZY!
That's my "Starts with D" for Friday's Hunt #4, with Teresa at Eden Hills. I guess you'll have to take a description of doozy, rather than a photo! We spent a lot of time getting ready today. The forecast is for 18"-22", with strong winds and some white out conditions. The milk truck is due tomorrow morning, and that could be an adventure. Those truck drivers have to go out in all kinds of conditions, just like the farmers do.
Jim put as many round bales up in the barn as he could fit...backed in a full wagon load of corn fodder for bedding...(the barn hill gets slippery and hard to navigate in this kind of weather!)...we got a load of sawdust earlier this week...the calves are cozy...the chickens have extra feed...and he's getting the generator ready, just in case.
This is my "beautiful" selection. This morning's sunrise...the calm before the storm...
And for my "week's favorite" I chose a picture of the beautiful flowers on my windowsill. They're what's left of the bouquet we gave Jenna after her District Orchestra concert over the weekend. Gerbera daisies are some of my favorites, and seeing them smiling at us while anticipating a snow storm makes me happy!
It's 7 pm, and it's been snowing lightly for about an hour. The cows are milked, the milk is cold, the pipeline is washing, the coveralls are in the washer. Now we wait.
I hope you're warm and safe this weekend, wherever you are!
