The kids had great fun, but again, were only good for a couple of rounds at a time without coming in to warm up.

    Later in the afternoon, I got out for a short bareback ride though the neighbours field on my old guy Sam. With his extra thick winter coat, he didn't seem to mind. Despite the snow, the footing out here wasn't too bad.

    Once I get over the initial shock of plowing, shovelling and shivering, I have to say that I do enjoy playing outside in the winter.


    I am trying to talk my brother into pulling out his skidoo,now that we have so much snow.Their's nothing quite as fun as full speed crack-the-whip with a skidoo,a long rope,and a tractor tire tube. :)

    Well, thanks for that clarification. I really do think some people here call them ski do's cause of jet skiing. Anyway, good to know now what is what. Thanks, lol. And that does sound like fun!!!!!!!!!!

    Since I was born in CA (not in a snowy area) I don't know how you guys mange w/all that white stuff! I get some now here in AZ, but it's difficult for me to deal with-moving to a colder area in your senior years is challenging. Also a hotter/drier area in the summer. I've been inside all day, keeping a small fire going & wearing lots of layers. If I sit down w/a heated blanket the cats are all over me.

    What's funny about your comment is the fact I was born and bred in So. Cal.

    It's snowing here harder again, so I looked at the radar. The radar... it LIES. It says there is nothing above us.

    Had to go check on trees as we couldn't tell if the loud cracking we heard was a tree going or someone shooting to dang close to our house (deer rifle season right now) and I managed to fall down the stairs... My husband is keep count as to how many times I go down the stairs on my rear...

    Do they change the way your radar works down there? Ours is still set to showing rain, they don't usually switch it to snow track until December, so yeah it can be snowing here, but not showing much on the radar

    Was it a tree? They go with such a crack. Stay safe on those darn steps

    No the radar is showing blue and pink (snow and ice) on the rest of the state, but nothing over us.

    We did not see any trees down, or cracked so Ryan thinks it was a hunter too dang close to the house. We have no hunting signs, but it still worries me. More so since Pistol and Blossom are smaller and closer to deer colored...
