Unhappy Snow is 5 feet deep and its middle of march!!

This is one of the worst winters we have seen in 15 years. The snow is almost up to the top of the fence. When i look and see them standing in the field it is under their knees. A couple of areas where they are reaching out to grab trees we have put rope up to keep them in. You certainly cant raise the fence for 20 acres at this point.. Good lord i hope they dont figure out they can just walk out. Hurry up spring. We may have to resort to leaving them just in the paddock for a couple of weeks til some melts. :(

Gotta love the snow! We've got a bit of it here in SK. About 3 or 4 feet I'd say. It blows all around so it's hard to tell just how much we do have, but it is more than average. Everyone is having to get more hay for their animals. I can't wait for spring!

That sounds awful! Then again it always seems that the worst blizzards hit in March and April. I remember a few years ago we had a blizzard in mid April that landed us with 18 inches of snow in a few hours. Welcome to the Great Plains haha

Slightly sad fact: this morning on the news the weather guy said that this day last year in ND it was 60 degrees Fahrenheit. My thoughts as I curled up on the couch tighter in my blanket, "You have GOT to be kidding me". The weather man then proceeded to tell me what a yucky day it was going to be outside. You have this round Mother Nature....

You're getting the storm that Regina and area got yesterday. Whiteout and terrible driving conditions.
