So, it snowed.

Which was completely unnecessary in my humble opinion.

I mean, I know it is pretty and all that stuff,

but it is November 16th!  Winter, by my calendar, is not until December 21st.

The animals didn’t seem to mind too much.

By evening chores, it was snowing heavier.

I huffed, and I puffed, and I finally managed to tie my heavy snow boots while bending over my sweatshirt, insulated-coveralls and chore coat.

I braved the wild outdoors with Pig-farmer.

He is like the animals and doesn’t really mind the snow.

DSC_0773I discovered it really wasn’t too cold out

and it really was beautiful.

But, it’s NOVEMBER 16th

and

that’s all I’ve got to say about that!

    It is always too early for snow! It’s nice when the wind isn’t beating you to death with the snow.

  6. haha! I liked the bit about trying to tie your boots with all those clothes on! When we elk hunt that is the hardest part, tying shoes and attempting to get on my horse with all that gear! 🙂 I feel like a walrus.
