October Snow

The snow started Saturday morning.  It was supposed to be mostly rain to begin with but Mother Nature had other ideas.  We blanketed all of the horses since they didn't really have their winter coats yet and it was very wet snow, a fresh round bale went out and the water tub was filled to the brim.  We weren't sure that we were going to be able to get back there later in the day since there were already tree limbs down.  The snow stopped sometime in the early morning on Sunday and left us with about 8 inches that compacted down as the temps came up.  By Sunday afternoon it was sunny and every thing was melting.  The barn is still without power, our cable just came up last night and there are still several streets closed due to downed trees and power lines.  Let's hope we get back to normal by the weekend.
