We have snow!!!!! I love it! Let me rephrase that. I love the excitement that snow brings.I love how people will stampede to the grocery store to buy milk, eggs, and bread. They all will be talking about the amount of snow that they heard we were going to get. "I heard we were going to get 3 inches." "I heard that we were going to get 5 inches." It goes on and on from there.
Well, we did get around 5 inches of snow. Wet,wet snow. We lost power for a few hours. There are some still people without power. I welcome the peace. You don't realize how noisy your world is, until you don't have electric. No hum from the refrigerator. No hum from the fan on the wood burning stove. All is still and peaceful. I sat down and croqueted Glamor Girl a scarf for Christmas. I read a magazine. I lit candles and just enjoyed the peace. If it wasn't for the freezer full of food, I could live like this. Until, I tried to do dishes. No water pressure. I had to go and dip water out of our cistern. Other than it being a little cold, it didn't bother me. I heated the water up on the wood stove and done the dishes. Just when I thought I could really get use to this, the electric came back on. I almost went and flipped the main breaker for our house. lol
Oh, and another thing that happened in this snow storm. We had a new calf born. The first one we have had for over a year since we had to get a new bull. Why is it that babies have to be born on the worst days? I don't know if it's a bull or heifer, or which cow had it. I haven't gotten close to it yet. When I do, I will post pictures.
So until next time....
Small Farm Girl, snow lover.
