Snow Day! Oops, I mean Ice Day!!

We are super happy to get any moisture that falls from the sky these days.  We knew going into this storm that we would be right on the line between snow and sleet.  It turns out we were on the line between sleet and freezing rain.  So far, we still have power, but I am exhausted!  We fed the cows this morning in the rain and went back when the rain stopped to unroll hay, so the calves would have a dry place to sleep tonight off the icy ground.

I saw today that Beef Magazine is having a Winter on the Ranch photo contest.  I have numbered all the pictures and would love to have you let me know which pictures we should enter.  Farmer Randy took some of them and the boys helped out, too.

With all the sleet on the ground, Farmer Randy thought we should have sno-cones.  :)

I am super tired from walking in the sleet and taking care of 3 calves that needed a little extra attention.  Let me know your favorite picture either here in the comments or on my Facebook page.
