Friday December 8, 2017

Friday December 8, 2017  The pastures have stayed white since our last snow because it's been so very cold, but I think that might change today. If it really does reach the predicted high of 40° today most of the snow will melt and the alpacas will be off wandering in…

Woodland Winter Wonderland

Saturday November 18, 2017  It snowed here almost all day yesterday and this morning the ranch is all blanketed in white. It's also showing 6 degrees on our thermometer as I type. 😳 I put out extra hay last night and I think everyone looks fine this morning.  The cats were…

We’re white again ❄️

Tuesday April 25,2017  It's snowing and 30° with snow expected most of the day today. It looks like we have a bunch of powdered sugar coated alpacas out there, most chose to sleep out in the snow last night.  I'd love to put the outside cam on for you but the…

Sunday, March 5

Sunday, March 5, 2017  Lots of melting yesterday, yay!  Just in time for a new snow storm that rolls in tonight. lol The firewood is still in good supply and we have enough hay for a bit longer so we'll just try to enjoy the beauty of it. My bigger concern…

Friday March 3

Friday, March 3, 2017  We might see temps close to 40° today!  I'll feed some hay out on the snow this morning to get everyone a dose of vitamin D. When all the alpacas are out of the barn, the kittens Friday and Garbo think it's their playground in there.  They jump in…

It’s March!!!

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 We made it to March!  Whoooo-hoooo! I know there will be lots more snow that will fall in March, but the days are lighter longer, we will see a few warmer days and the buds on the trees are starting to swell. Our grandson had a ball in the waist deep snow…

Feb 28, 2017

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 Well, we thought January was brutal but that was before we met February! It snowed most of the day yesterday and piled up more than any other storm so far this winter. It was very powdery so I was able to open most of the gates, but we are officially winter…

Snowy Monday

Monday, February 27, 2017 We're currently being slammed with yet another snow storm. It's really piling up out there and is expected to continue most of the day today. I'd like to turn on the outside cam for you but it stopped working and I think I saw some damaged wires, so I've ordered a replacement cable…

Sunday Feb 26

Sunday, February 26, 2017 A great group of people came here yesterday to learn the basics of alpaca ownership. Thanks to those who came out! We all had a good time and it's always fun to watch people fall in love with alpacas. :) It's below zero this morning, but no snow is in the forecast…

Woodland Winter

Friday, February 24, 2017  Winter is definitely back in Woodland! More snow, and subzero temps for tonight. We're all OK, no worries.  :)  My commute to the barn might be strenuous, but today is one day I'd rather be on foot than out in traffic. Be careful out there!  Happy Friday! Photo of the day: Welcome to…

Dreaming

Thursday, February 23, 2017  A wise old farmer once said to me, "If you can make it to March 1, the rest of winter will be easy." I'll have to hold on to that thought today as we got another blast of winter overnight.  I do love my mountain home, but this winter…

Winter lingers here…

Tuesday, February 21, 2017  It still looks like winter here which will delight our grandson who is coming to spend the day here today. He loves the snow and ice and will happily spend most of the day outside. We'll check the melting ice at the creek and see if…

Everlasting winter

Thursday, February 16, 2017  I spent most of the day in Salt Lake City yesterday and what a different world that is. It's only an hour away but looks like a totally different climate. I didn't see any snow at all! Our driveway is still lined with mountains of white and the poop cart that I…
