Winter is Here

After it rained and was just below freezing all day yesterday, it finally turned to snow overnight. The winds picked up and we are now having gusts of 50 mph and it's below zero. We haven't had any weather close to being this cold, so it really feels bitter outside. I didn't have to go to work this morning due to the roads so I got to help Luke do chores instead.

View from the back porch this morning:

The cows looked pretty cold and were all huddled behind the grain bin. Needless to say, they were happy to see some hay this morning.

Kelly loves the snow! While Luke was feeding hay I snuck between the rows of hay bales to try to get out of the wind for a bit. Kelly was very busy running back and forth across the top of the rows of hay bales. This picture was taken as Kelly realized the cows were getting too close to Luke as he was taking the net wrap off the bale. She was gone the next instant--off to help him!
