The morning began with sunshine, a nice surprise, but it wasn't long until the cloud cover rolled in. On my way to tend to the girls I gathered a big bunch of leafy twigs to throw over the fence. Did I mention that goats really love leaves? Being browsers in a pen without trees, this was a real treat for them. The prediction had been for light, intermittent showers so I left only the play yard open for the day. The grass was so waterlogged from the previous night's storm that by the time I got back from the goat barn, my shoes were so soaked that I might have been wading in Lake Tahoe. They're still drenched and certainly won't be wearable for days.
The sun did peek out once in awhile, but the temperature stayed down in the 30s. Did I mention I'd used the last of the porch firewood the day before? There was no sense bringing up a wagon of wet wood, so it was a case of grab a lap robe and a couple of cats and tuck in for the duration.
Shortly after the snow stopped falling, the sun came out and within an hour all the white was gone. My head was spinning just trying to keep up.
Whew, what a day!
