Moving snow off the road in front of our house.
Last night another wave of snow hit and made driving up to the barn a problem. With the blowing snow drifting across the road, it was a little tricky and at times I felt I didn't know if I was actually on the road or not. The last thing I wanted to do was to wind up in the ditch and have to walk home at 3:00 a.m. But I made it just fine. Today we've been having more and more snow which continues to drift everywhere. We are hoping that it lets up this afternoon so the men won't have to plow the roads anymore and we can find our way up to the barn as well as to get out and feed cows. The good thing about all this snow is the moisture. We've been quite dry here and although snow isn't "wet" right now, when it does melt, there is hope of fresh, run-off in creeks and stock dams.
The Redpolls have been swarming the feeders today and we've had a visitor from the Downy Woodpecker too. They are so fun to watch. I'm spending a little time in between barn checks with my embroidery. I have a couple projects going as well as the TAST embroidery stitches each week. It's been fun incorporating the stitches into my projects.
Tonight the Winter Olympics start with Curling for one event. It's the funniest sport to me. I'm thinking that they are showing it early in hopes of gaining viewers. There's also figure skating and downhill moguls tonight. The Opening Ceremonies are tomorrow. Yay!
