Last Sunrise of 2014…

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!  We sure did!  Besides dealing with crouping cold, one kid with pneumonia and another with a sinus infection, we made the best of our situation and had a wonderful time with friends and family over the past couple of weeks.  Markus and I were even able to get away for a couple of hours in the wee hours of the morning of New Years Eve…IMG_4840IMG_4860

Just Keeps Snowing…

 

We had a blizzard warning for this past weekend, mixed with high winds and dangerously low wind chills.  -20 to -30 below zero, brrrrr! 

My wonderful husband was the one to venture out and do chores and keep our road from drifting shut and the neighbors plowed our this weekend.  He had came inside to warm up for a minute and decided he needed a kiss.  Umm, no thanks honey, I’ll wait until you thaw out!

He also spotted this hawk hunkered down in the storm.  At first we weren’t sure what type of a bird it was…

Only 17 more days until Spring, right?!

I can’t wait for warmer days and to enjoy Montana’s wild flowers again…

I’m missing the freezing fog this week.  We are experience extremely cold temperatures here this week.  Tonight’s low is suppose be -10 F with wind-chills bringing the temps down to -20 to -30 degrees F.  Wishing it was a bit warmer like it was in these pictures…

Did I mention we have a handful of Suffolk ewes due any day now?  Hopefully they got the memo on not delivering in this cold.  Brrrrrr….
