About two hours ago the snow that was suppose to be here last night hit...and according the the noon weather the strom took another track and we are going to get the brunt of it instead of Nortwest Ark....So..Glad I got prepared...the Ice Storm of 2000 taught this old gal a lesson...As they say..."Prepare for the worse and hope for the best"...
Cows are all a good warm fire...MAtt is getting in more wood...Just measured snowfall...2 and ahalf inches on the front porch..and still apeppering down...Milking should be interesting this evening...None of the cows have seen snow except the milk cow...
Even though I have lived in Arkansas 18 years...coming from southeast Texas where is never hardly ever snows...snow is still something special to me...the first one anyway...Then enough is enough...hate to see the boggy ground when it does thaw out...

Northern ohio and about 6 inches so far. Son plowed driveway once, so might as well wait for it to be over. Not goin anywhere. Had a terrible blizzard in jan of 78, never forgot that and am totally prepared for anything now. Never felt so helpless in my whole life like in 78, vowed that would never happen again. so really keep prepared. Kids tease me that I have enough food to feed a small army. have about 300 candles,. generator, lots of food and a wood stove to cook on, and plenty of wood close to the house, so let it snow. If the power goes out, so be it, I can wait this one out without a problem. got lots of water stashed away a d keep the bathtub filled, just in case. so take care and enjoy the day, doesn't happen that often. better than a hurricane or earthquake. only animal is the dog and she is so fat and lazy. didn't even bark when the raccoon ate all my apples. But the got plenty more where those came from. Take care.

Kat, here's my very first milk cow, Suzie. I think she was mostly Guernsey. She was patient and sweet. When I first began learning to milk, it sometimes took me 45 minutes, and she'd just stand and wait.
