Surprise...

Last night I tried and tried to get one of my good autumn photos to load. I was so tired of grey in all my posts. I wanted some color! But those photos were too dense for my dial-up.
Look what I woke up to this morning. SNOW! And lots of it. With my grainy old cam-corder I snapped this picture of a sumac branch against the snow. It will have to suffice for the color I craved since the whole farm turned shades of grey last night. I took it around 7am so the light was pretty bad too. You probably get the idea though.

The winter storm really raged last night. Winds were strong from the west and they coated everything with more than 2 inches of wet, dense snow. Snow ball snow.
I took a little walk this morning only to find my lilac bushes by the lake and the round pen bent low under the oppressive weight of clinging ice and mush. They looked like drop cookies pressed down with a fork.
The electronet around the ram pen was down in three places. I can hardly believe I didn't have rams all over the yard this morning. It would have been easy for them to just step right over the fence buried in the snow. I'm grateful they decided to behave.

Did you make a snowman? You know the saying...if you've got lemons, make lemonade..........

No snowman. Had to go to work early.
The scary thing is that it's 5pm and it hasn't all disapeared.
It's Minnesota, Garrett. Get those snow blowers ready! :)

I was surprised to hear you had snow too, Sabrina. It's looks nice in your photos -- and so does the completed siding. Congratulations and good luck with the remaining siding. Love your chicken photos too.
