In reverse

A few days ago we started the day cold and cloudy, then it snowed, 6 inches worth of snow. I thought we would have a white Christmas. But the good ole Chinook winds came up and melted everything away. It was muddy for about a day. The Chinook winds are warm winds from the south west. Our temps got back up into the 40's! It feels more like a spring day then Christmas!

Snowy sunrise.

Icicles hanging from the barn.

Feeding cows.

Yesterday all the snow was gone. Today is an absolutely gorgeous day!

Blue skies.

Old poplar trees in the back yard. They are HUGE!! A favorite place in the summer for the cows.

Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Christmas.


  1. Like those trees, they are very unique. Merry Christmas to you and family. It has been nice getting to know you. Those poor pets here, two catz and dogs, all turned up without presents. Such is life, they are spoiled all year.

  2. Merry Christmas to you guys too.
    Did you notice K's shirt was covered in Christmas lights and she had on a Santa hat.
    Will you see M & H on Christmas?
    Funny how the days can change so quickly.

  3. Well, that's a bummer if your snow melts before Christmas! Six inches is a good snow storm!

  4. We had a beautiful Christmas Day too! Makes leaving home to see family possible and easier when the weather cooperates.

    Sounds like we are in for nice temps the next few days.

  5. What a difference a day makes! Love your icicles ours are all gone. We had a wonderful day of 46*. I cleaned out the hen house...they loved me for it!

  6. Oh, gee, I love those old poplar trees...was going to ask what they were. They do look huge. And the pics are just fabulous when enlarged.

  7. Wow your snow does go quick. LOVE your photos. Happy New Year. B

  8. Wow, it did melt fast. We still have snow on the north side of everything around here. Happy New Year!


Thanks for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the ranch.
