Winter arrived last night while I was snuggled down in bed. Woke to three inches of heavy wet snow and is still snowing at 1630 today! Am I ready for this? Of course not, solar panels not on roof of shop yet, chicken nest doors not even cut out on coop yet, wind generator is only half installed, cars still have summer oil in them , fall yard clean up has not yet begun and holes for new fruit trees arriving soon are not dug! It does not matter when winter arrives I am seldom all set for it. We always haul in many supplies during the early part of winter while we can still drive to the house. Hauling heavy feed bags by snowmobile later on is such a chore. The white ,quiet, fluffy ground is beautiful but my mind is racing on how much I can get done tomorrow if I hurry!
