Snow!

Talking about the weather is one of those things people often do as a means of making polite impersonal communication, somewhere along the lines ofย  “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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

    That is one happy looking dog. Your place looks beautiful in the snow.

  2. Very pretty Linda. I know you got sick of it like I did, but it sure was pretty!

  3. No fair! You got more snow than we did. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow Linda you’ve been quite inundated! Hope you figure out a good way to transport hay… I rather liked your trash can lid/sled idea. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I really need to a post on Dopie.

  6. Now I know what Dave’s stupid dog looks like. I’ve never been one for beagle dogs. I think there’s a downside to being TOO focused. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I absolutely love the photo of Maggie running down the hill. Now that’s a happy pup! Hmmm…. maybe you could rig up a hay pack for her ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hope the snow melts before it quits being fun.
