Battening down the Hatches

The whole county is bustling like a hive of bees.  I was just at the feed store and everyone was talking about getting the generators out, critters hunkered down, and closed up in the barns.  The Colorado beast has awakened.  Whenever a system comes up from the Gulf, it brings a buttload of moisture.  This one, coupled with very low pressure, is bring up an alleged humdinger.  They are projecting 35 mph winds with gusts to 80.  In addition, it is supposed to dump up to a foot of snow, yet at the same time it isn’t supposed to get down to 32 F.  We’ve seen this before….. it’s going to be scary windy and the snow is going to be crazy heavy.  So as with all the other worker bees, Zina is coming home, the batteries are all charged up (because we are sure to lose power), and we will be closing up all the creatures and putting the boy goats, who usually just hang out in a pig hut, into the chicken barn.  Here we go.  Just a typical Colorado spring rain.  Then, of course, it’s all supposed to melt off…. Yay! Mud!

    While all this is going on, our weather will be in the 70s. It is nice, but will not be easy keeping up with the incoming spring.
