Mother Nature is exerting her power this Christmas! But she does it with beauty and grace. My husband and I have had a quiet Christmas at home with the animals as Interstate 29 is closed so no traveling to gather with family. (Although my most awesome husband did take me out to the barn to ride horse early Christmas Eve while we were waiting for the worst of the storm to start. He knew that if I couldn't be with my two footed family, my four footed family would partially fill the need. And it is always a major treat when he is willing to come and hang out at the barn as that is NOT his favorite thing to do.)
We are supposed to have another 24 hours of snow and wind so this is starting to look like the storms I remember from childhood. Storms just have more influence on your day to day life when you live out in the country! No putting the truck in four wheel drive and seeing what is going on like we usually did while living in town.
Wanna come visit? But don't use our front door!!
We (okay, really Jonathan did all the shoveling) went out to dig our way into the Morton building to feed and water the kittens. Their kitty door was a bit buried. The large white and grey cat was still visiting. We can't quite figure out whether a neighbor's cat spends a lot of time in our kitten's luxurious accomodations or whether we have a new cat....
Max and Ginger had to check things out also!
Thick fur is great for winter storms!
