"All (farm) hands on deck !"

The latest prediction is this...16-19 inches of snow over the next 24 hrs with high winds and blizzard conditions. Just great, and I am out of Diet Coke.

Keith was outside all day yesterday closing barn doors and windows, nailing plywood and other such "inventory" over those doors and windows that either would not close or did not exist initially. He also continued to add extra bedding over the bedding I did the day before and as soon as I am done with this blog, I will be re-bedding over that. If animals are dry they have a much better chance of coming out of a windy, cold, snowy snap. By noon today we hope to be seeing only this, rising up out of thickly bedded critter homes.

Its a bit hard to fathom all this snow predicted as looking out my kitchen window at this moment reveals mostly calm. High winds last night were an inkling of what was to come and due to the drifting I sent a message out on Facebook that  farm visits would be best after Thursday. To complicate our matters even more, the pump failed on our milk tank, milk has warmed and none is suitable for anything but pigs for at least the rest of the day.  You know what they say, "Its always something Matilda"
