Winter at Last

January Snowfall 2013
January Snow
Winter has finally arrived, after a long week of rain. We had at least eight inches of lovely, heavy snow. And of course the power went out because of it. Only for one day, so it was kind of fun. I cooked my breakfast on the stove (eggs didn't work out so well but I need practice) and put on a pot of beans to simmer all day. A potato in the hot coals taste better than anything. Spinning by lamplight is romantic. But only for one day. It was nice when the lights came back on yesterday afternoon.

Our snow is almost melted and today it was sunny, warm and windy. Haven't checked the weather for this week because chores still need to be done, no matter the weather.
Leslie, do you still have your Angora rabbits?

We still have a lot of snow on the ground although some has melted. Supposed to get really cold this week. I don't currently have any rabbits due to some issues with my father and his friends, but I hope to have them again eventually.
