A Great Storm Blew In—-Thursday, April 11, 2019

Yesterday and Today are miserable days to be outside

Although, Terry and I had some work that HAD to be done…wind, rain, sleet or snow, no matter

The bitter wind blew off all the Apricot blossoms

Making the ground white

Even landing on a very disgruntled cat

Today is pretty much the same

I went out to look for rainbows, but the clouds were not the right kind.

Still, we had nothing compared to the eastern slope!


They are calling it a Bomb Cyclone


So in loving memory of the Apricot blooms,

I will close for now,

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,



Wind Driven Snow—-Thursday, January 5, 2017

snow-storm-003Around four this morning the dark and cloudy skies filled with wind full of snow.


The air was roiling with tiny flakes of frozen water.  As the night lightened into day the wind has continued to blast the trees and pelt the buildings.

Min-Min cat met me at the back door telling me she wasn’t going to spend the day in the barn, the shop or the shed–Thank you very much!  Today she is an inside cat!

The whole sky is shades of gray and white.  I can hear the whistle of wind around the eves of the house and rustling the fire in the wood stove.

The ground is all white now…chilly and soft all at once.  The air is sharp and full of shards, but the ground is starting to look like a Christmas card.


From my world to your heart,

The storm is here!  Yesterday we had extremely warm temps–57* by four o’clock, then by midnight it was raining.  Three in the morning rolled around complete with a ground blizzard and tiny specks of nasty biting snow.

MoreThat is pretty much where we are right now…side blowing snow with gusts around 20-30 mph full of little stinging flakes of snow.  The trip to the chicken house was fast!

Terry has an appointment he needs to keep so has been struggling if it will be worth the drive.  Blizzard conditions are never good.  Our oldest daughter had to drive to work in Grand Junction and she said it was horrid.  Our daughter that lives in Grand Junction and works for CDOT says the roads are a mess everywhere.


Terry called the man he was supposed to meet with and was pretty much told that the man made it in…geez.

Well, it’s up to him.
