What A Difference A Day Makes

Yesterday and Saturday the rains were pouring down and the fields were saturated and overflowing.

Today it’s almost back to normal.

Thursday morning the timber was frozen and the ground was covered with ice.

The next day it’s totally different!

We are having a whirlwind spring or end of winter and we don’t know from one day to the next what the temperature will be.  Last night we were experiencing 35-60 mile per hour wind gusts.  Thankfully there was no damage to anything that we have found.  We deal with this while waiting on baby calves to be born!!  Farming is a challenge, especially beginning this year.

This heifer delivered her new babe on one of the worst days of the rain and cold winds.

This little black-white faced bull is a survivor!!

A totally different day

Pictures tell what kind of day we’re having today on the farm.  This is the front yard after the storm and the snow starts melting:

The meadow between our house and our daughters house is out of its banks.

It runs into the driveway at the bee house and flows into the spring from the mountain.

It's coming out the hills behind the house and barn and down pass the cemetery.
