The Long Winter

Sunday, 7:00 a.m.

Sunday, 9:00 a.m.

Sunday, 11:00 a.m.

Sunday, 1:00 p.m.

Sunday, 3:00 p.m., improving somewhat...

Sunday, 5:00 p.m.

This'll probably be the last photo, as it's beginning to get dark. Still blowing hard--fortunately it doesn't seem to be snowing quite as hard as it was earlier. Thank the Lord for heat and electricity...


  1. Do you have your rope tied from the house to the barn so the farmer doesn't get lost? Perfect day for lambing, right?

    It doesn't seems so bad here in the woods but it is ZERO according to the thermometer on the deck. Good day for chili in the crock pot.

  2.'s a balmy 2 degrees here (not counting the wind).

    No lambs yet (please not today).

    No ropes were used for the morning feeding of the animals.I'm not sure we own enough rope to reach all the way to the sheep barn...

  3. I always feel like February has 56 days instead of 28-We get it bad enough in NW PA too. Your post gave me a good sympathetic chuckle on a nasty Winter Day. I am glad our lambs are not due for another month

  4. Are you SURE you are not just hitting "cut and paste" for your pictures??????

    Actually, I do believe you. I grew up out there and remember not being able to see much out the front door for hours and even days.

    Are the sheep cooperating on a day like today?
