I snapped this photo about noon yesterday. The snow fell at a rate of  over two inches and hour. The storm total for us was 15 inches. That is a pretty good smack of snow, especially this early in the season!

I am actually fairly pleased with myself. Most of the stuff that needed to be done to prepare for winter had been completed. I knew we would get snow soon, I just didn’t expect this much! I had to rush to get feed to the grazing cattle and sheep, because the grass is buried deep under the now melting snow.

The weather is supposed to be cool but very nice for the next ten days. I hope to continue getting our autumn work completed. The corn harvest is still not complete. That job will take much of my focus in the coming days.

After the storm passed, just before sunset, the sun came out and reflected off the snow covered tree branches and the landscape as well. It was a beautiful sight. Winter is bearing down on us. We are almost ready, but in the meantime I will enjoy the beauty that comes with the snow. It is much better to work with Mother Nature and not get upset with her…you can’t change anything anyway.

Odd as it may seem, here in the traditional Northern Crawford County “snow belt”; we have about half that much snow. But the corn and soybean harvest has halted for the time being. Every day is a good day.

I am stalled too Rick. Now, 15 inches of snow equates to another 1.5 inches of rain on an already wet field….but as you say…every day is a good day!

It was crazy the amount of snow! I worked all last wknd to get as much done before the storm. This much snow makes feeding animals difficult & the only time I don’t want to go to the barn. It is beautiful though. Take care.

I agree, all this snow does make chores take longer!
