Greetings from 20 degree Minnesota. The temps have warmed and the sky is clear for the moment, but the weather people say more snow is coming on Thursday. Maybe this super snowy December means a dry January? I sure hope so.
This last Sunday we had a light dusting of snow and a hazy sky that morphed into a brilliant blue by mid-morning. It was just a beautiful winter day. I snapped quite a few pictures as I went about my work, and I’m finally getting around to sharing them. I think a few captions should do the trick for verbage, and I’ll try to let you have an uninterrupted tour 🙂
And that’s an abbreviated look at some of the sights and sounds of the farm on a winter morning. (I guess you’ll have to imagine the sounds 😉 ). In case the big TMR Mixer wagon picture is a bit confusing, you can read more about how we use it to feed our cows on this post.
I hate to blemish my lovely picture post with a ton of words, but I can’t resist a quick update on my noon run. It was completely yucky outside because a coating of ice was covering yesterday’s fresh snow. I didn’t really want to chance doing the splits in my running shoes – or worse – so I headed for my first substantial treadmill run in over 2 weeks.
All went well, and I covered about 4.1 miles in 39 minutes. Not particularly speedy, but it was good. Hopefully I’ll get outside sometime this week in between snow storms!
What’s your favorite season? Do you have a real winter where you live?
