Winter came early in November this year, and we’re still firmly in its icy grip. We have so much snow we’re running out of places to pile it! I am definitely thankful for my heavy duty insulated Carhartt overalls this year! The good news is, the cows are all snug in their barns and are handling the cold weather just fine.
I thought I’d share some of my favorite “winter on the farm” pictures I’ve taken so far.
First, some pics from Winter Storm Knife that hit us in mid November. We were very blessed not to get as much snow as other places, but we still spent a day shoveling off the barn roofs.
Only a week after the storm it was warm enough to let cows out to pasture!
It can either be blizzard-ing and snowy:
Or, extremely cold and clear:
I found these “snow feathers” on some of the driveway stakes and thought they were so delicate and pretty!
The frost on the windows is also very beautiful.
I hope you are all keeping warm! Many of my friends have been asking about how our cows do during the winter, so I’ll be posting about that soon!
