A Storm Rolled in Last Night—-Wednesday, November 11, 2015

We woke up to snow this morning!  Although it IS melting, it’s still snow.  Sure seems early this year.

Off-we-goTerry and I worked on the fire roads.  We have one that is a pain in the ….well, you know what.

Fire-road-1Yep, Terry is stuck…that’s a chain, whereby I’m pulling him out. This particular spot is a real struggle.  Twice a year we clear and clean and create making it safe to get to the rest of the farm.

Fire is a mighty and very scary thing.

Helping-MomBoomer worked right along side of us, up and down, back and forth…over and over again.

Right now the wind is blowing, sharp and cold; pushing the clouds toward the north and the east, mud is appearing where the snow once was.  Work on the fire roads has ended for the year.

Your friend on a very muddy western Colorado farm,

Linda

  1. We have some spots like that too that need to be maintained and we have a lot that goes through wooded areas that need to be cut out quite often.
    We didn’t have snow Sunday and Monday but we had a cold driving rain that felt like ice. Yesterday was warmer but the wind didn’t make it feel any warmer.
    You guys stay safe and yes, old man winter is upon us!

  2. Fire prep happens wherever you are. For us, it’s early spring, before storm season brings the heat and big thunderstorms that start so many natural (as opposed to man-made) fires. For weeks, the hills are covered in a thin haze of smoke, where fire mitigation burns are going on to clear old dry vegetation. It’s inconvenient, that smoke, but it sure is necessary to deprive the big, scary fires of fuel. As you say “fire is a mighty and scary thing”…

  3. Not much fun being stuck in mud, I presume.
    I think what you mean by “fire roads” we call here “fire breaks”.
    Who owns the skewball horse or as I think you call this coloration
    of a horse in the US – a pinto??
    Oh God – no I don’t mean four legged pinto beans – ha ha!
    Overcast here – it has been raining on and off all week so far here in
    Brisbane, but the good news it is pretty well wide spread rain so
    the outback is getting some also.
    Cheers

  4. Looks like hard work, Linda. You sure are smart to know how to do all that, and then get your husband unstuck too! Hope your weather gets a bit better and your sun starts to shine!
