Snow!

We sure have had a lot of snow this year. But yesterday was the biggest of the snow storms so far. I'm not sure of total inches, but I know it was upwards of 3-5, maybe more then that and they put us under a level 2 snow warning. We aren't done yet, with more snow expected to fall tonight, and flurries the rest of the week.

The animals quite enjoy the snow, and I thought I'd share a few pictures I took of them yesterday! :)Jasmine loves the snow and could care less about how cold I think it is. :) She didn't want to come in and I basically had to pull her inside!

Cynder and Kaos also love the snow and play in it and eat it. Kaos thinks he is king of the world. :)

And, I'd love to show you tons of pictures/videos of all my horses, but Trucker is the only one I can ever get running around. Eventually I'll get the others... But here he is trotting away...

The horses are not always the biggest fans of going out in the cold. They whinny and neigh whenever I get down to the barn, but once I put them out, they are whinnying to come back in. they can't seem to make up their minds at all! But, we feel they need the exercise, so they at least stay out for about 4-5 hours. And that way they can munch on whatever dead grass they can find too.

Since I still haven't started working (impossible since we've had so much snow...every day has been a snow day!), I plan to go grocery shopping today...I'm hoping the stores have had a chance to restock after what I am sure was a mad rush in preparation for all the snow. People make me laugh...do they really think they will be stuck in their houses for endless amounts of time unable to get to the store? Who knows.

I hope all of you are enjoying whatever weather you are getting. I, for one, am looking forward to warmer weather!

I love the pictures and video! It's amazing to me how animals treat the various seasons.

Snow over there and over here, it's 70 degrees and muggy. I think our winter (aka "summer lite") is just about with and summer is on the way!

We are looking forward to warmer weather here too. We didn't get a lot of snow, but we did get a lot of ice!

Your animals look beautiful against that white snow!
