Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!

Winter is here and has hit hard! Lots of snow! I hear it is supposed to be the snowiest winter we've seen in a long time. The temperatures are cold, and yet, I still love it here!!!

Here is two pictures, one taken yesterday afternoon after about 6 inches of snow fell. The poor dog isn't sure what to do with the white stuff, although he LOVES to roll in it!!

The second picture is what we woke up to this morning. Yikes!! The dog really looked forelorn, rolling in the white stuff results in disappearing into it.

By the look at these clouds, I think there is more on the way!

The weatherman is promising snow for the next week! Yay us! Temperatures have been cold, we hit -40c, but they have been huvering around -28c to -24c.

The Shetlands are mighty hearty. Other than some cold feet (I've removed snow from between many a toe the past month!) they almost thrive on it. They are still active and greet me every morning.

Now to get the snowblower to start, it's being difficult, doesn't want to come out into the cold I think!! For now, I've walked paths to the water in all the pens. Shoveling is out, for now that motion is a killer to my already aching tendons/muscles in my arm and neck. Only 3 or 4 more months of winter!
