Well with temperatures rising overnight we had the deluge of snow slides off from the roof tops of our buildings. So Christmas morning I saw the forecast was for heavy rain and more melt...then freezing.
So it was time to get out the shovels and start digging out gates to different pens and paddocks. If I didn't, we'd have to use ice picks to get Mica's gate open in the next 24 hrs.
Next it was onto the young Dexter's gate. The skid steer got stuck in a real soft spot and we had to dig it out. The cows and this year's calves looked on.
We got fresh large bales to those who needed it and today we'll probably put out a corn fodder bale for them also.
The rain and winds swept in yesterday afternoon with thunder and lightening.
As hubby and I sat and watched a really odd movie called The Lobster, we heard the rest of the snow come storming off from our roof valleys.
Morris jumped off from the couch and ran around the house stiff legged and growling.
I have to admit, it was an unnerving sound.
Christmas is over and I'm ready to take on the rest of winter.
