Here Comes Winter…

We were supposed to get rain this afternoon, but when I looked out the window at around 2pm I could see huge white snowflakes falling from the sky…  They were heavy, like lots of little snowflakes stuck together — and mixed with rain.  Ugh.

I came home and checked the weather forecast.  The weather these next few days is not going to be fun…  We’re expecting low temperatures Friday night of 10 or 11 degrees.  This is the kind of cold that breaks all of the automatic waterers and the hose fittings.  B will drain all of the water lines tomorrow, and we’ll begin hauling water as part of evening chores.

Bah.  Winter has begun.
