It’s storming today, came in yesterday and last night was wild with all the wind.  It’s been blowing so hard, (wish I knew the mph on the gusts) the power went out last night due to some power lines breaking.  It was approximately one half mile from our house down in to town as the crow flies and we could see arching transformers like crazy.  It was quite a show! 

What scares me the most about the storms and winds is a huge oak tree that we have right inbetween our house and where we park our vehicles.  I am always lying awake thinking of how horrible it would be if that tree fell.  But, I’ve just got to have faith… and sometimes that is hard to do.

Our animals are miserable, they just want to hang out in the barn because it is so cold with the driving rain.  They’re shivering and we just keep throwing food at them to build up little fires in their bellies.  The sheep are doing well, they don’t mind so much as long as they have a wind break.  The llama isn’t too thrilled, and I’m sure she’ll be one of the more grateful animals when we get the sheep shed built.  Oh, the joys of animal raising and country living.

But, to leave you with some visions of better days, here’s some of our sheep.

  1. Your Violet is very pretty. We are really stormy this morning. Lots of wind and cold rain. The sheep looked at me like I was crazy when I said it was time to leave the barn and go eat some grass!

  2. How absolutely adorable. I sure go my “sheep fix” in those charming photographs! Irrestible.
