We're getting snow but not much of a blizzard yet...

Friday, November 09, 2012

Hi..we've had a busy day..we went to neighbors this morning and helped them round up their cattle before the "big blizzard" hits..they are selling their calves soon and needed them home..we go back Sunday to help them sort calves for market...we stayed for lunch which was a very nice treat :) I enjoyed their hospitality!!

Then we ran to town for the mail...then home to move our cattle home..they are almost out of fall grazing where they were at so we brought them home in case it does storm.....thne hubby got a call from another neighbor that there were cattle in the community pasture that don't belong..so he drove over there and couldn't find any...

We got around 2 '' of snow so far and a bit of wind..not the big blizzard yet..I'm sure it's happening somewhere...

We didn't get time today to go to the city so maybe tomorrow depending on the weather..I'd like to get the pictures done for the Christmas cards and find some patterned paper for the letters..or I could just design some...

I think I'm almost over my flu/cold am feeling much better now...

I should go make some tea..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    A blizzard already. We have had just a bit of snow one day. Today was in the 60's! Keep Sparking Donna and have a wonderful Sunday tomorrow.

Take care, and I hope the snow storm passes you by,

    Sounds like a busy day getting prepared. Hope you don't get too much snow! We're expecting a little bit tomorrow, but I think it's only maybe a few scant inches for the Denver area.

  Uhh. where are you? Just a short bit ago I was talking with my Sweetie about the blizzard that hit central NY State and states above and below with a blizzard back in '92. I was driving home because I heard on a radio in a store that they were closing the roads. I've never seen so mush snow at once. Humongous snow. Piled up way high. And we were confined to our houses for two or three days. I envied the snowmobilers who were zinging over the snow and getting out, while those of us with pickup trucks and cars had to wait.

And eventually the snow melted and we had floods from it. Somewhere in this house I have pictures of people in boats in the K-Mart parking lot, of all things. And there were fish which had gotten into the parking lot from the Cayuga Lake inlet.

Battening down the hatches for the first blizzard of the season...

Thursday, November 08, 2012

Hi we have a 2 day blizzard forecast so we've been trying to fnish up some ou
outside work..so far it's just rain, but we'll probably wake up to snow..some reports say up to a foot...?? or more??

We'll see if the forecast is right..if not we're off to Weyburn tomorrow for some supplies and pay some bills..etc....

I'm feeling quite a bit better..still having some fever and chills ut didn't do too much today..except for some heavy lifting..hubby got a pallet of salt blocks and 12 bags of minerals so we wunloaded them today..the both wiegh about 50 pounds and lots of each...mega work out..then I helped load more posts where hubby was fixing some fence..and I got drinking water..3-5 gallon jugs loaded into the back of the ton truck...so got my ST and rode x bike too.

I did a bit of work on Christmas cards and some housework and laundry....and got some rest in too...

Still feel very tired so off to bed after this blog..

..Thanks for dropping by and for all your comments and get well wishes..Keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    Hi Donna. :) When I read the title of your blog, I just had to read it because where I live there is a 2 day blizzard warning, as well. When I read 'Weyburn' it made me smile. I'm assuming that is Weyburn, Sask? I am in southern Alberta. :) I hope you're feeling better soon. emoticon

    Somehow I missed your last couple of days and did not know you were under the weather (heheh). I'm sorry to hear it, and glad you're feeling a little better now. You work like a maniac. I'd like to be a spider on the wall ... just to see how it's done!

Take it easy:)

    Fencing would be what i would consider a great day of exercise. I love exercising when I can see that I have accomplished something after I am through. Whether it is cutting firewood, clearing land, mowing pastures, building a cabin or even mowing my lawn, I can do the work and feel like I have accomplished so much more than running on a machine. Keep up the awesome work, PLEASE take good care of yourself, and get well soon.
