When I let the dogs out this morning, it looked like we had about 3 inches of new snow.
Gary left for yoga around 7 and I shoveled a path out to the barn around 7:30. Fortunately I remembered to put the hose in the kitchen last night so it was all thawed out and I could fill up the water trough.
The temperature was not too bad....
Fed the horses and put their hay in the front paddock so they would have a little protection from the wind.
It was still quiet while I finished cleaning the stalls.
Then it started to snow like crazy.
I was supposed to take Madonna over to PF Chang's for lunch, but with these whiteouts I wanted no part of driving on the expressway with zero visibilty. I shoveled the driveway for awhile...Gary took over when he got home.
After lunch, the dogs and I went for a ride down to Wegmans to pick up a few things. We are having company for dinner tomorrow night.
They were happy when I pulled into the driveway.
It kept snowing, and snowing, and snowing... and the wind was getting worse. I opened the indoor before I went to the store, but the ponies just don't care about being in there when instead, they could stand outside in a blizzard. Two run ins and a 60 foot shed roof and they still hang out in the paddock.
I felt sorry for them and went out an hour early to do evening chores.
Gucci and Phoebe went out several times to play in the snow, but did not last very long.
How about that hand stand?
When I got back in the house I headed straight for the fire.
Dinner...more comfort food (guess I'm on a roll). Bacon, eggs (baked in the oven), homefries, English muffins with PB and J and Orange Juice.
The Amarylis is opening up more each day.
Here's the scene just before dinner.
I just can't get warm. Have to get in bed with a hot water bottle. Night all.
