Well, we got back to work for a half day yesterday. The snow was coming hard and fast from before we even got to school, and we got a legal half day in! Today, thankfully, we had a snow day. I would not have been able to get out of the driveway even with a delay. It’s been quite the weather show.
The real problem comes with the temperatures. We never got above zero degrees today. It was -18 when I got up this morning, and by the time I did chores it was -14 with high, gusting winds. Always fun! I fed everyone inside as best as I could, but the ewes and the does need to have some space, or there is fighting over hay. Everyone is ok. They have water (thank goodness for the tank heater) and enough shelter to keep the wind away. The two boys are hunkered in with Zorro the fuzzy llama, and they seem to be fine. We are feeding out more hay than usual, in the hopes that they will keep their calorie intake up and make more body heat. This has been such an unusual winter so far, I do not even know what to say. Except that we are all still here and doing okay!
