the storm visited here on Dec 26th, pelting us with frozen pellets of ice, then high winds blew snow all across the grounds and the prairie
making a nice 6 inch blanket of white that hushed the woods and the grounds in a quiet peacefulness.
the ordinary gardens and chicken yard looked like a scene from Alaska instead of Texas
The ordinary cotton field looked like a frozen lake.
Every thing and any thing was covered and frozen.
Sophie found it very hard to walk in snow that was deeper than what she is used to.
The chickens and Homer the cat, had to stay for a week inside of the chicken house.........
but they were comfortable in hay with a warm heater.
After the snow left, cold weather would not let it melt quickly.
Driving was scary because of the frozen fog and slippery roads.
But .......finally, the sun smiled his warm smile and every thing started to melt.
We still have a good amount of snow on the ground........but it is melting ........
the grounds are soggy,
the cat and chickens are free to roam about,
and Sophie is able to keep up with me better.
I hope that " Goliath" passed over or around you and that you and yours are safe and well.
