Tease

As I type this it 45 degrees and raining hard.  I found out today, while I was doing chores in the downpour, I still like rain much better than I like snow.  I will gladly trudge through water with my Muck boots while I dump water pans and change out hay in the rabbit pens.

For the last million few days, it's been nothing but an ice skating rink around here. We had some snow around the first of February and it has been cold and snowy ever since. Today, TODAY, is the first day that I actually got to see grass.  The chickens were happy because they got to go outside and scratch around.  Although everything was under water, they didn't care.  I understand chickens, I understand.....

Now for the bad news........  We are suppose to get 12 inches of snow tonight.  That's right, a FOOT of snow.  I think I'm going to cry...

This is the last of the snow/ice that slid off our roof to land in front of our door.  I'm sure there will be more tomorrow.......

I'm so done with this winter.  I don't even want to look at the seed magazines that I'm getting in the mail.  I don't want to get my hopes up.  I keep telling myself that surely there won't be any snow in June.  But, the way this winter is going, I'm not even sure that is true.

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, snow hater.

You're too far north! Lol My parents aren't horribly far from you, and they have to deal with roughly the same crap. I'm sorry the weather's gone wonky. (It got into the 70s here. :p)

My husband also has been depressed by this winter. He has not started his tomatoes that he usually does and hasn't been studying the seed catalogs! Spring better hurry up!!

Thor missed us by this [] much in NE Ohio yesterday. Just about the ONLY storm not to dump on us this horrible winter. Hope you didn't get 12" after all. Chin up. Spring this next week?
