Excitement is in the air
Things are getting exciting around here- we are on the verge of a big storm... high winds tonight with power outages possible. Then up to 5 inches of snow headed our way by Sunday. We will have warm temps of 40 degrees until tomorrow and then we won't climb above freezing until next weekend. This is the biggest Artic front that we have seen in nearly 20 years. Yipee!!! I love the snow and I love the day of "getting ready". My laundry was all done by 8 am, floors mopped, soup on, and all the kids stuck into a hot shower first thing. Out in the country if we lose power we lose water, and being a small rural area not a big priority to restore our power quickly. We are so hoping to see snow- it would be the boys first!!!!
They say animals "know". Buzz has been strangely quiet the last couple of days. We hardly see him. He isn't trying to beat the car to the garage. Tom, in winterizing the house and animals went up to take a peak. His little house is busting at the seams. He has been hauling all kinds of plants and branches deep into his house. He has then taken a bale of hay and fluffed it up, so that after he climbs in and nestles down into his thick pile of pine branches, he then fluffs the hay up and around himself, so when you look into his house you cant even see him. Crazy Pig. I would let him have the garage (I am sorta a softee )
These pictures are from a surprise storm last year... It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!
