Blizzard Conditions

Posted in Photography, Winter by leahyetter on February 2, 2016

Yep. Old man winter reared his ugly (or beautiful depending on your frame of mind) head yesterday. It started around 5am and hasn’t stopped yet, almost 30 hours later.

Up in the hills, which I still can’t see from here,  at least 2ft of snow has fallen so far.

When Patrick got home from work yesterday afternoon, we headed down to the meadow.

The girls were excited to see us. They’d follow us anywhere on days like this.

They like cake. A couple of them will take it right from our hands.

This is the first time we’ve had to lay down hay this winter. The meadows have been plentiful but when there is a 10 inch blanket of snow covering their grub, we have to roll some out on top of it.

They love it. We said nighty-night and headed back in to keep the fire stoked up.
Then there was this morning.

Before you say anything, I am NOT forcing Collins LaRue to be outside on this snowy morning. She sleeps inside at night and explores the outdoors all day. But while sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise, she went in and out 10 times if not 20.

She just couldn’t decide. And she wants so bad to be out there but the snow is just too high. She has finally given in and is in her bed for the morning.

And what a beautiful morning it is.

    This post really made me smile this morning ~ beautiful photos and descriptions of the land and life you have 🙂 Nothing quite like the life of a farmer/rancher especially when nasty weather arrives. Stay warm ~

    You’ve captured the moment perfectly. Especially love the paw prints in the snow.

      Ha! Thanks! Those paw prints show confusion and frustration. Going toward the yard and back to the door. That tough kitty is going soft on me!

    I love this post, Leah. Judging from the pictures, everything is perfect despite the probably not so easy work with keeping the cows fed. No snow over here in Germany at the moment, but our cat is just the same – wants to go out, but no, the weather is too yucky, but wants to go and finally decides to stay in. Cats! 😉

    Dear Leah, what stunning work! Did my soul good to be here this snowy morning to soak up all the beauty of this space. Thank you and blessings. Sharon x
