It was not that great when Karen and I were doing chores, but we did put the horses out.
By 11am it was getting nasty, so I put them back in for the day.
Gary and I passed on chorus....did not want to get stuck somewhere away from the farm.
By 11:30 it was one big white out.
The street has been snow covered all day...
and I could not see the house and barn across the street.
Spent the afternoon gathering tax information with my butt in the fire.
By evening chore time we had already shoveled three times.
I put the girls out in the paddock while I cleaned the stalls, changed the water, set up more hay and got the grain ready. Of course it was still snowing. As of 6pm we had a good 12 inches.
All the ponies were quite happy to get back in the barn.
I did manage to make a decent dinner...got in to eat after we shoveled for the 4th time.
(People think we are nuts to shovel, but we are very used to doing it and today the snow was very light. If we had not done it frequently, it would have been a different story.)
Baked organic chicken, rice and an apple/carrot/craisin salad.
Tasted good to me.
