Welcome to the snowglobe! Last night we got two feet of snow. I think people in Connecticut got a lot more. I went to work on Friday and by 1pm, everyone had gone home. Including me. Once home we waited for the weather to descend. People got out their generators. People stockpiled water. I went to the grocery store to stock up on carrots and they were SOLD OUT. (It's a good thing that people around here want to keep their brumbies happy during a blizzard.)
At 7 am this morning when I took Getty out, Brandon's car was barely visible! Dude, where's my car?
Aaahhhh, dear woodpile. Where would we be without you? Don't leave us too soon! We have miles to go before the Spring!
Later, after digging out the car, we headed over to see Lilly. It was aggressively windy over at Bill's. And very cold. The weather conditions, for reasons unknown to me, is always much worse at Bill's. Yesterday Bill had moved all the horses and the donkeys to the near pasture. Which was smart, because on Saturday, even after an entire morning of plowing, the road to the BP could only accommodate the 4 wheeler. To see a video Bill made this morning while plowing, follow this link:

And if I were ever to worry that any of the horses were not getting Bill's tender loving care in the middle of the night during a blizzard, then this video is proof I need not be giving it a second thought: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wzq7_YFrugQ (I personally find this video hilarious.)
By 2pm today the sky was blue and the sun was out. There I go down to collect my brumby!
Oh! A brumby in the wintertime! Still wonderful.
