Not much more than an inch of snow fell early this morning, and it stopped around eight – exactly like the weather report predicted. The same report that predicts it’ll start back up soon and basically snow all day. No word about wind.
So I took that opportunity to go take care of T&S’s horse, double-feeding her in case it’s not safe to go back this afternoon. If weather allows I’ll go, but her water won’t re-freeze between now and four in the PM and she won’t fade away from hunger – so I’m not risking a stranding to do it.
In the meanwhile the chickens still need me, and that I can happily do on foot. It’s one of those mornings where the snow seems more pleasant than not as long as you wear crampons and watch your footing; it’s a few degrees above freezing but the snow hasn’t converted to mud yet, so it’s a nice morning for a walkie and I’m off to get mine right now.
