Weather Change

Finally, after X-mas we have snow.

I was bringing wood in from the far west meadow when two turkeys flew into the field just ahead of me. I was too slow with the camera. Hoping for another chance, I got the camera ready & circled ahead. Yes, I got another chance but the camera had automatically shut itself off to save power so I again did not get a photo. Sigh!

First Fire of the Season

I'm not sure why it took so long to have our first fire this fall. Perhaps because we have not had snow?

Sounds of the Morning

At 5:15 this morning the coyotes started to yip and howl. The donkey replied with loud braying. The wind whistled through the trees and snow pellets pinged against the windows. So much for quiet country living.

Running on rail trail. Little rain. No one else out.

Snow yesterday morning. Gone by noon. Just felt cold today.

Here is the first photo of our new rooster. Names suggested so far include Rudy, Roary, Ko-ko-dee. Do you have suggestions?
