Snowpocalypse

It's hard to believe that at the time of writing this entry it's March 27th. The wind is howling and slamming in fits against the house and the snow is being driven into deeper and deeper drifts. We've got category 1 hurricane strength winds and it's been like this for 12 hours now, since later morning yesterday and it's a little after midnight. Oh my goodness am I ever glad the animals have some shelter from this weather. They're ready to move up to the farm this weekend so as soon as the snow clears we're going to get them trailered. We'll get the barn yard fenced so that they're out of the way of the heavy equipment when they come to do the septic system installation. I also want to separate the ram and shearlings out from the pregnant ewes so that I can manage their feeding a bit better.  It's very important to feed the pregnant ewes well for the next few weeks because the lambs inside them will put on a bout 70% of their growth during this period. We want to keep them all healthy so we have good lambs and healthy ewes with lots of milk to feed them.

Anyways, I just wanted to catch up while the power is still on and let you know that we're sick of this winter weather so would you please pray for Spring to finally come? We really could use some good weather in a hurry.
