Ginnie BakerWinter took its good old time arriving but it's here in full force! It was snowing so hard, I couldn't see beyond the post light at noon! We aren’t getting hit as hard as New England, but here in Bellville, we’ve had more than our share of snow and ice.

Our schools are already out of “snow days” and they are using scheduled days to be closed as “make-up” days; it’s only the middle of February!


Today, Sunday, February 15, we woke up to temperatures of 10 below zero and a wind chill of minus 20!

At least Samson and Delilah, my miniature donkeys, were snug in their barn where the temperature was at 12 degrees; not balmy but better than below zero!

The poor birds are having a tough time. We filled bird feeders at least five or six times yesterday. It was a terrible day; heavy snow and wind blowing better than 30 mph all day.
