Any else get snow recently?

May 1st and it snowed this morning and tomorrow will be no hell for warm either. I have saddles to clean and hate having to turn on the heat. Rubber gloves kept my hands from getting wet and cold. Last year at this time the shop was warm, almost too warm for sweat work.

Not yet, but it's on its way. We've had some light rain today, but the temps are dropping. We're not going to get much, thank goodness.

We're supposed to get snow tonight, a whopping 1-3 inches. Freezing temps are rare down here this late in the spring and snow this late is virtually unheard of.

Heck, it was over 90 degrees 2 days in a row over the weekend. Gotta love the bipolar weather of the Texas Panhandle LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

11" here!

The cows where I board celebrated the snow weighing down the electric fence and ESCAPED!

We ended up chasing them for two miles in knee deep snow with grain and alfalfa (one stupid cow hates grain but will come for alfalfa).

LOL, no snow here, but we got about an inch of ice. We were supposed to get cattle in tomorrow, but the place where the pens are at got 3 inches of snow on top of about 2 inches of rain. So, everything is slick enough that the trucks won't be able to get in there.

Had snow on the ground yesterday from the night before and today I mowed the yard.

After last summer and all the fires and little hay and cruddy crops, blue sky makes me nervous!

Can I trade weather with you all? It's been in the upper 90s here and we even hit 100 for a couple days. Winter ends too early. =/
