Well you know what snow does to us.........we are idiots we cannot drive on the stuff. There are no snow plows, no equipment. All the schools are closed tomorrow in all the surrounding counties, even as far south as Polk county. Anywhere there is snow, it is white LAVA! it destroys tires, don't drive on it!!!! We sensibly will not get on the roads in order to be hit by some stupid speed demon.
Funny but true! When I was a kid, we drove through Alabama during Christmaa vacation. There was about an inch of snow. No biggie for us. But the roads were dangerous because no one knew how to drive on snow. We stopped at a restaurant for a long time, waiting for other drivers to clear off the roads. Still makes me smilw. But I'm thankful for the experience. It really is a different world when there is no sand, road salt, snowplows, and no one has been taught to drive in snow.

An absolutely glorious January day here. Temp in the upper 50's, total blue sky and zero wind. This day was a precious gift! I got some fence work done and was able to move the pullets out of the chicken tractor into a nice big pen. Hope they're still there tomorrow!

I need to go back to my notes and see when the first doe was bred - if I logged it in. I noticed at least one fat goat that's got a little bit of udder development. Time flies! Hard to think we might be kidding next month. Yay! I need some cute little kids to squeeze.
