It finally started snowing about 4 yesterday afternoon.. of course the wind blew… not sure how much we got but ai think most of it blew down south east of us. We had all the livestock behind protection and fed.. went out this morning and fed again.. seems they all survived..as far as blizzards go, I have seen lots worse ones, around here.. I see they are having flooding in the eastern part of the state and north eastern Nebraska.. them poor folks are getting walloped. I talked to Fr Tyler this afternoon and they had rain and then snow, so got lots tougher conditions than we did. Sure glad we aren’t calving in this, but have in the past and if you got your sheds all bedded down and check real often, you save most of them..going to be muddy after this.. when there is bare ground it was muddy this late afternoon. It’s all moisture and we will be glad we had it, later on when the grass starts to grow. Not too big of drifts to dig out tomorrow. I am old school and remember digging out after thesis with a two wheel drive tractor and no chains, so with these front wheel assist tractors, this doesn’t seem too bad.

Was thinking about you all today — my boss, Fr. Mark, said a friend of his out there said it was really bad. Glad you’re coming through alright, Blessings, friends!
Thank you. We didn’t have it nearly as bad as many all around us.
