April 16th, and snow

Not unbelievable, but definitely unwelcome

The rain and the wind came yesterday, and even the temperatures plummeted. It was 22F first thing this morning and I had to scrape at least 2″ of snow out of the feed troughs. Rather rude of Mother Nature to throw that at us, but at least we are not getting hit as hard as the midwest is again.

Our little goatie girls are doing well. They are going to be disbudded tomorrow afternoon at the vet’s. I actually am home today with a recuperating husband after he had some hand surgery yesterday for his advanced Dupuytron’s Contracture. Not fun, particularly since he is a leftie and it was quite bad in that hand. At the moment he is asleep in the recliner with his half-casted/bundled up arm elevated. (We had to throw a rope over the main beam in the living room, and attached it to the stationary bike! I better be careful not to move the bike!).

Luckily, the day is improving. The sun is bright enough now that I can hear the snow crashing off the metal roof. I really have to get out there and take a better photo of our baby girls! But first, kitchen cleanup calls.
