Just after I posted my blog update this morning, I stepped to the back door to try to snap a few photos of how strange it looked outside - the fog was blowing around like sheets of rain and it looked like a giant spooky fog machine was at work. Here are the pictures, taken one right after the other...see how the fog closes in?
(The two bottom pictures are the exact same view and snapped just seconds apart!)
As I write this tonight, the temperature is 56 degrees and the fog is gone but it is raining again. I used several bales of straw throughout the barn tonight...it's really wet. I also took delivery of 100 bales of hay this afternoon - lol - luckily, my nephew could back right up to the barn since the snow and ice had melted away!
I also wanted to say thank you to those of you who have left some very kind and encouraging comments on this blog the past few days. It's always nice to know that folks are reading and take the time the time to comment. I appreciate every one of those messages!
