Note To Self Re Snowstorm Preparation

Think Tarp


  1. Wet wood smokes. A tarp would come in handy. :) I love the picture, though!

    However, I'm still a bit jealous that you have snow at all. It's early morning and already in the low 60s today.

  2. EEK!
    Luckily the air must be very dry due to all of the moisture being FROZEN!
    So you should still be able to use the wood if it isn't stuck together?
    I definately think you need a tarp....

  3. But it sure is purty this way!

  4. Hi Sarah,
    What's nice is that (usually) we get just enough snow each year to make it welcome rather than dreaded. I'm always still amazed by how much a snowfall changes the landscape. My favorite part is how the snow allows you to see the "lay of the land"--instead of just hills around us, I can see how they are all formed, etc. There's a word I'm looking for and it's not coming to me, but hopefully you know what I mean!

    Hi Alisha,
    To dry the wood or keep me warm? : )

    Hi Clare,
    LOL, good one. Oh the wood is still burnable. I just took out my handy broom and swept it off! (I've had practice sweeping off the snow on fallen trees when we've had to go cut firewood in the snow.) So then did I put a tarp over my nicely swept off wood? Of course not, as there was no more snow predicted. Then it snowed another half inch. : )

    Hi Lacy,
    The more years I spend on the farm, the better I get at seeing the beauty (and/or humor) in frustrating and stupid situations. : )

  5. Contours! The contours of the landscape. That's the word I was looking for! Gosh, I feel so much better now.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.
