we had so much snow pack and Ice it was hard to work a team without shoes. Now we have had 4 days of warm weather most of our ice and packed snow is gone. this morning the water was finally going into the ground and now it will be A lot safer to work the teams.

We haven't had more than 6" total of snow all winter.Ground is dry and bare. It was 58 degrees two days ago, it dropped to 9 above this morning and is suppose to be colder tomorrow with a high of 26.

I'm going to freeze my tush off with this global warming

We were choking on dust a week ago. Got a foot of snow the other day and it'll be ten or fifteen below zero tonight.

Glad for the moisture as we were getting pretty desperate with lots of rock showing in the high country, but could do without the subzero.

My heifers will start in about a week, cows toward end of March. Sure hope it warms up.
