This past weekend we got our first snow storm of the winter. It was a gentle storm that dropped about 15 inches of snow along with snow rain to make roads miserable. I call it a gentle storm as there was no wind, no fuss. Snow just fell from the sky and kept piling up. There was ice on the trees but we didn't lose any branches. The highways were treacherous for a few days but they are all clear now. And we've been plowing snow and yard is all clear. Next we have to work on shoveling out loading chute and alley way so we can get cows home.
