I don't know what's happening to me in my old age (I'm only 25!!!!) but I have turned into a HUGE wimp. Any other year, we would have been deliberately galloping into those big drifts by the trees, and this year we were like "no, here is good, no deeper plzkthxbai."

Last year I was riding her mom's Quarab mare, and across the road is a massive farmer's field with a little path built up over the ditch to get into it. The darn snowmobilers don't need to use it, so they'd created a path off to the side, so when I used it, my horse DROPPED out from under me. I swear I didn't think we were getting out, she was past her chest and only her fiery determined attitude gave her enough to leap clear! One of the times I was VERY grateful I had a saddle or I don't think I would have stuck with her!

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

All my snow melted away! It rained for like a week, and some of the snow was melted and taken way and made slush instead :) I love slush! But there is still a little bit of it left. The media said there was going to be atleast a foot of snow in an hour one day and school was all canceled. In the end there was barely 15 cm.
