The Big Slow Melt


Our snow here totaled a foot and a half by the time it stopped. It’s warmed up to the 40s, but that amount of snow doesn’t melt fast.
Not fast enough for me, anyway! That’s lop-eared Lizzie at the gate, waiting for me.
The ducks were confined to a stall all weekend, where they usually only spend the nights, so they’re happy to be out in the world again. They’re ready for puddles!

I have some big goat news coming…..that hopefully I can show you pictures of by tomorrow!

    The snow is melting so quickly, it was 45 degrees this morning at 5 o’clock, but the temps are dropping quickly and the wind is picking up, about 20-25 MPH it will drop to about 20 degrees this evening, this is one of the craziest winters ever.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
