Winter has Arrived!

It was slow in coming (lucky for us ‘just in time’ farmers), but winter has arrived in full force. In the span of 10 days we will have 10 inches of snow, wind, sleet and sub-zero temperatures.

When it first arrived 10 days ago, we weren’t really ready, but now Winter can come. All of the animals staying with us for the winter are in the barn or hoop house, the outside fencing is finished, and most of the tools and such have been rescued from the snow. Phew! Now we can breathe a sigh of relief, start enjoying the snow and holiday season and wait for the arrival of Doodle’s piglets. We think Santa will come a bit early with them, but hopefully after this cold snap.

Winter’s arrival also means, a new slideshow! Do note fall, summer and spring photos are always available in the albums at our picasa site:
