    Jive could be without his blanket, but then he'd have an unfair advantage for blanket tag.... *sigh* I think my blankets are all one big patch at this point. I probably need new blankets, but Jig is so tricky to fit I just keep patching up his ancient one.

    Just the other day it was almost 80! Today we have this! The thunderstorm we had a couple days ago really greened the grass up, at least.

    Oh shucks, I did see Jack running away from Charlie. It is fair to assume this is happening in my pasture right now.

    Good news! We have 35 and melty right now.

    You know, before it freezes and snows again tonight.

    ooh, but a thunderstorm would be worth it!! Not sure we've had more than 60 yet this spring, maybe one day at 60. It has been unseasonably cold allll spring.

    We have only had one day so far. Otherwise it's been anywhere from 30 to mid 50s. Terrible!

    We got some ice Friday night.
    And then the snow started.
    I got sent home from work saturday and never got sent out today. Even the milk trucks aren't hauling. Lots of farmers are having to dump their milk today :(

    I'm about to head out for evening chores, its a little early but there is a slight lull in the whiteout lol so I'm going to take advantage of it!

    Wow,I feel for all of you horse women and men for enduring the prolonged winter.
    On the greener side to this all,you won't have to worry about watering and everything will be nice and green when everything here will be dead brown with all the dust in the air.

    And, I got stuck twice plowing. Second time, back up, slid sideways and ended up 20 feet from where I started... and there it sits! Lol

    Today is the 105th of January, I was doing a first aid course at the barn, wearing T shirt, with warm top over it, vest, goosedown jacket, then went to get Fergies fleece and wrapped myself in that. I WAS intending to change Fergies blanket from winter to spring weight, but seeing as they are calling for snow again on Monday/Tuesday I just left it on:(

    Yesterday driving home was about the worst drive I have taken here.....most of the way it is on gravel, the roads are melting, but the wind was so strong it had blown a ton of snow over them, so they were deep, wet, slushy, icy and snowy all at once. Visibility was poor, and it was just HORRIBLE...
