 We woke this morning (or more appropriately were woken by our youngest son) to the news  that it had snowed. The first snow of the season. Timmy was pretty excited and I must say I  still share in that magic of the first snow. While it is mainly on the grassy surfaces, it still  transforms everything into a winter wonderland. Some say, “Snow? I hate snow” Me, I love the  snow, to me there is absolutely no reason to have cold weather unless we are going to have  snow. Here are some pictures of the world outside our window. Interestingly, the snow (that stuck) was actually only above 1000 feet. We are located at 1600 feet (I know this from my canning since altitude plays an important part in not poisoning your family and friends) and while we have about 2 inches of snow on the ground, there is NOTHING down in town, which is only 6 miles down the hill. Brotherly love at work, TJ woke Tyler by placing a snowball on his face. Now, that’s love!

The goats and the chickens weren’t particularly excited about the snow. This is all of their first experience with the white stuff. The chickens were all gathered against the coop and the goats, well, they must have been saying “what happened to all the grass?”
