Aaaaand we have more snow...
It was 68 and sunny on Wednesday.... today it is 20 with snow, snow and more snow. Although the high winds they predicted haven't hit yet so I'm feelin' purty lucky!
We prepared for the storm last night by bedding down the goatie houses deep with straw, cleaning up all the animal pens so the snow wouldn't cover a layer of poo. Oh, the animals still poo, but clean pens under the snow and new poo make us feel SO much better. Silly hoo-mans.
We blanketed the two thin-skinned red horses this morning. They were wet and shivering. Why oh why don't they stand in their shelters where it's dry? Brandon, our old, old gelding, was rolling his eyes and shaking his head at their youth and stupidity.
Today on my way into work, crawling along in the snow and sloosh... there was this kid.
Shovelling a sidewalk. Shovelling SNOW.
He wore his "pants on the ground" jeans with a tank top.
Bare arms! Tank top!
Pebbly nipples! (ok, ok - I couldn't really see his nipples ... but it was cold enough that they HAD to be hard like little pebbles)
Pants on the ground - shovelling snow!
Now I KNOW I'm old.
Old, old, old - just like Brandon.... I was in my car gaping open mouthed at this kid. I drove away shaking my head when the light turned. Isn't that the true sign of being old? Shaking your head at the goofy things younger people do?
