Talking about the weather is one of those things people often do as a means of making polite impersonal communication, somewhere along the lines of “how ya doing” “have a nice day”.
Weather is always important to farmers, shepherds, and gardeners. We are always watching forecasts for rain, or sometimes for the rain to stop. Not only does the rain impact our pastures, but the price of hay and grain. In northeast Georgia, we seldom consider the forecast for snow. We do get snow, but not much and not often. Some winters go by with no snow at all.
This is the third snow this year – and we even had a white Christmas! This is the our driveway taken from the road on Christmas day – we are down there somewhere.
I’m always surprised at how much my Great Dane, Maggie, enjoys the cold. She’s my fifth Dane and the others have been pretty wimpy in the cold. She loves it. She doesn’t like rain. Here she is trying to dig out her ball – I think we’ll find it when it finally thaws 🙂
I really need to get a ram paddock up closer to the house!
Maggie loves the trip down the hill, but she’s not carrying hay
Short legged Dopie has to walk in Dave’s foot steps.
Some blue sky today! No tire tracks on our driveway yet.
