Another Day, Another Ice Storm

Dan Is Ecstatic - Can't You Tell?

So almost all of the 'no accumulation' that piled up during last week's crazy storm finally melted off - and now it's back. We even had more thunder. At least we were able to get out to the feed store to stock up on sheep and donkey treats before being snowed (iced? sleeted?) back in again.

© 2008, the award-winning blog where a donkey look says a thousand words - but is a whole lot quieter. Not that our donkeys are actually keeping quiet during all of this frozen, snowy, icy weather nonsense.


  1. Lovely picture. The ice crusted tree is beautiful!!!

    If it makes you feel any better.... we are dealing with the same weather. Misery loves compnay!!

  2. I've had enough already...Snow would be a welcome sight in comparison to this damned ice. Bring on spring!


  3. I LOVE your sheepy header! It's so cute!

  4. Enjoyed reading your blog!!

  5. We have the same weather here - just not the adorable donkeys to complete the picture!

    I think this picture would be perfect for February in your Donkey Calendar ;)

  6. Lovely picture! All we have here is rain. I miss the beauty of snow. Stay cosy!

  7. Though I miss the stark beauty of ice storms, I don't miss driving in them!

  8. Ice - bleah! Not good - sunshine, springtime - good. I'm fighting a flulike affliction and am reduced to mostly short declaratives. Poor Dan - I totally agree with him!

  9. As a keen donkey fan I was so glad I stumbled across your blog. The donkey photos are lovely. As a child whenever my parents could not find me, I usually wandered off along the road to feed the donkeys. 240 acres how fantastic. I live in an old farmhouse in Kent England but only have an acre.....I am surrounded by sheep farmers and I love it.
    I will be back.

  10. Oh, my goodness. Whether the weather be fair...or not, Dan is outstanding in his field. :)


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.
