We have had a horribly (not normal) cold winter. I hate it. It stinks and it's no fun. If it's going to be so cold, we should at least have some snow to go with it...and to gripe about! But alas, it's not to be. Until the storms come from the south. I've always said the storms that come from the south always dump on us, so when this storm was predicted, I was hopeful. We got the day off in anticipation of the upcoming storm...and nothing happened...until about 8pm that night, when it started snowing and sticking. We went to bed (knowing) we had no school and (knowing) we'd be snowed in. Again, it didn't happen. But, we did get about an inch...more and less in different areas.
I was debating going for a quick drive as the sun was coming up to get some pictures before it melted. I knew it wouldn't last long. And then I saw this in the field...
This was the first decent picture I've been able to get of this guy. I've only seen him/her a couple of times and it's been almost dark when I do. Unfortunately he's going to have to go before we start building our chicken coop. I'm not planning on providing him with meals each night!
I took a quick drive as the sun was coming up.
I didn't go far because the roads were icy in areas and I didn't want to navigate. The hubs had a job cancel though, so he drove me around for an hour or so!
The barn was so pretty with the snow as the sun was coming up.
Fox and bunny tracks...and now you know why we have a fox...lots of bunnies!
Pretty snow covered weeds :)
Snow or not, she's happy to be outside.
Next up...our snowy drive.
I am not a good sleeper. I never have been. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. If I wake up at 2am, I usually go to the couch, turn on the tv very low and usually can go back to sleep. Usually. One morning last month I was rewarded for my lack of sleep and saw this at 330am. It was awesome.
I have never seen such an orange moon, much less at 330am! (And I almost missed it!) A few days later, I (thankfully) had slept through the night and happened to look out the window while getting my coffee and saw this...
Again, the orange moon, but thankfully at 630am. This time just about full also. The funny thing would have been to see me running around in the dark, getting my camera, swapping lenses and trying to figure my settings, all in about 2-3 minutes! Some things are not meant to see! :)
I think I'm going to have to hire someone to blog for me! Or else I need to write a daily schedule AND KEEP IT! Or I need to find another 3 hours in the day to complete everything I'm working on! Since none of that's going to happen, my goal is to be a little better at doing it myself. Yeah, we'll see how that works for me! :)
This is what happens when I ask the punks for a few pictures.

The goal is to smile and as momma clicks the shutter, make a funny face. Momma is quicker! ;)
Don't mess with momma when she wants her pictures...can you blame me?!
