We went to bed last night with the threat of snow. Being from the South, I never believe it’s going to happen, at least not when it is still September and has been well into the sixties. I guess I better become a believer. We went to bed with a dusting at 9:30pm (yes, we went to bed at 9:30pm, don’t laugh). I begrudgingly pulled out an extra blanket when I saw this:
The cows were, well, I guess you could say they were mooing, but it was more of a desperate moo-yell for help. And, it was loud. And high-pitched. If it was feasible to put a few cows in the heated garage, I would have. JR didn’t think that was a great idea. He asked me if I worried about the mice. Well, I don’t wish them evil, but I don’t really care what happens to them. If the frost/snow slows them down a bit so as to be more easily caught by our resident prairie falcons, I don’t really have a problem with that. Smart-aleck 🙂 I did think we would be woken up with a cow in the backyard. I guess our fence line is holding up, though there have been a few cows sneak through the fence around the property next door. Poor cows.
I got up to this:
Noooooooo!!!!!!! All the poor new trees and landscaping (I know I still owe an update post on the landscaping stuff). Sniff, sniff. Hang in there guys!
Exactly one year ago, I took the afternoon off to go boating at Cooney Lake! In shorts! And short-sleeves!
The forecast was for 1-3 inches last night and another inch and a half today. Seventies by mid-next-week, thank goodness!
There is not one sign of melting yet. C’mon sun! I refuse to get my snow pants out until October!
**UPDATE** 10:30am JR just spent an hour brushing the heavy wet snow off all the new trees and bushes. Thanks honey!
**UPDATE** 12:15PM Still snowing…
