Look who flew by my eyes today!
I had to look it up. I think it is
The weather has turned warm here. It was 45 degrees yesterday with sunshine and melting snow. Today we hit 58 degrees with more sunshine and melting. The little dry creek below our house is running and the overflow culvert by our stock pond near the house is gushing out. The run-off is really coming down now and reservoirs are filling up everywhere. These last couple of warm days have been glorious even though we still have plenty of snow out and about that has yet to melt.
And guess what?
Thursday and Friday we are expecting
And more cold.
Temperatures in the teens are expected for the weekend.
What will this poor butterfly do, I wonder?
Perhaps he will find a nook or cranny to slide into during the cold snap.
We have lots of baby calves running around and they are good and healthy. There are many ranchers in our area who are having a rough time. They are losing calves to the elements and sickness is breaking out in their calves too. It' been a long, tough winter for many. We've been blessed to have three men working around the clock to save calves and keep everything fed and cared for. We've also had to buy extra straw and hay for the cows and calves. Straw for keeping calves dry and hay for hungry cows and sheep. We could stay in this weather pattern for a while. Our wet season is April, May, and June so we'll see what's in store for us. We can't complain about the moisture when others not far from us are not getting any, but the warm sunshine sure felt good! The children keep praying for moisture (rain and snow) at their table prayers. It has been engrained in them, I suppose.
