    Ice rain here since about 10 last night. There were 9 accidents on the highway in an hour so it was closed for a while.

    The horses are not wanting to go out today and I don't blame them.

    Ugh, so sorry about the freezing rain!

    Here we have a high of about 30 today and sun. At this point, I'm willing to consider it a victory! The 10 day forecast keeps changing from projecting low-40s later in the forecast to instead projecting low 30s. That false hope is just killing me!

    My water trough heater died...there are no more available in the stores, yesterday the wind chill was 12. I complained to a friend and she told me not to look at the weather forecast because it's not getting much better.

    Starting to snow here again......it's day three of snow, blowing snow and high winds. Truck is gone except for the box, feinces are gone but the storm was kind enough to leave me a few short fenceposts so I can see where it is, there are now drifts over 15' high by the grain bins and I am afraid to look out the west window. Apparently the only way around is with a skidoo now as most dirt and gravel roads are completely blocked not that it matters because many highways are closed. On the plus side, for the moment, I can see as far as the neighbours half a mile away.

    BREAKING NEWS!

    Has Punxsutawney Phil given his last forecast?

    A prosecutor in Ohio is reportedly seeking the death penalty for the famous rodent who emerged from his home in Gobbler’s Knob, Pa., on Feb. 2 and did not see his shadow, translating to an “early spring,” according to his handlers. But Michael Gmoser, prosecuting attorney in Butler County, said Thursday that Phil's inaccurate forecast warrants capital punishment, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports...

    ...Gmoser said a reprieve is possible.

    “There may be some mitigating circumstances I may not know about,” he continued. “Phil may not know his rear from a hole in the ground. That might make a difference,”...

    6 - 8 inches expected here

    Bad enough out that the interstate just south of town is closed both directions and will be pretty much all day to clean up the mess of several accident.

    I'm over it too. Have snow, wind, no sun. Wind chill is about -8°c. The horses hate it. They're all acting like loons, even Rue who is normally good with the wind! I almost got flattened tonight when I went down to bring them in.

    I was going to go to a show tomorrow, but they've closed the road because of 15-20ft drifts! In England. In March! This time last year, I was at a garden party. It was sunny! I have photos!

    Well, think of it this way, you all are heroes to the next generation. Remember reading about the great depression, or the pioneers that set out and founded our countries ( you too Canada). Well, you are living the stories they will tell. Yup.
    "why, when I was pregnant I was herding the goats and carrying 30 lbs of water in each hand in the Long Winter of 2013, and dang I was looking forward to sitting down for the two days it took to birth your mother."
    "it took 30 hours to get through 100 yards of land from house to barn".

    Of course, the kids will scoff and not believe you until they're adults.
    But you're stll heroes.

    Well, we ended up with some dust dunes and maybe 1" of snow and 16F this morning, a bit of ice to break in the horse tanks, but not much.

    The dust storms ahead of the snow caused several wrecks and closed I-40 for a bit for "0 visibility".

    They say we still are into 17 years of a 30 year basic drought and in the 3rd of the record breaking 5 year one, ugggh.

    I wonder how this will eventually affect the horse industry, feed prices over the top, so many jobs lost to the drought, jobs of people that were participating with their horses in so much we do with them and maybe now can't.

    You did get dumped on.

    Just think of all that great moisture, once it melts.
