Baby, it's Cold Outside

Us wimpy west coasters are still complaining about the weather.  Every day when I check the forecast on the computer, the cold weather seems to extend one more day.  Now they are saying Thursday before we get an above zero temperature.  At least the wind seems a bit less this morning, although at the Abbotsford airport the wind chill is -9.  It just looks kind of drab and frozen out there, with a dull grey sky.

The hens breakfasted on some frozen kale this morning

And it was frozen grass for the sheep, although they are getting some hay too.

Doesn't seem to bother the dogs though.  Here are Jake and Luna ready to spring into action at the gate to the bush field this morning.  Hard to tell in the photo, but Luna was like a coiled spring
And Calli is kind of, la, la, oh...whatever....I'm going to do my own thing anyway, doesn't matter what you say...

Are you ready? On your mark, get set, go....

And they did, and I shoved my thick gloves on as fast as I could because my fingers were numb.
When we came back, silly Jake laid down on the driveway and told us he'd keep watch over everything, but we made him come in.

  1. Cold here too, doesn't seem to phase Ryker. He seems to love it. I'm all bundled up like a mummy...hard to take good pictures with thick gloves on and steam coming out of my mouth and nose to fog up the camera!
    The farm animals look content feeding in the snow : )


I love to get comments, so don't be shy!
