More Photos? That's sNOw Surprise

 
There is s'NO'w doubt that the 2013 Blizzard of Oz provided beautiful scenes, along with some much needed moisture.
The second round of winter on Sunday and Monday delivered another 6 inches of snow to the County Line. This was on top of the 14-plus inches we got last week.
Randy says it's been a long time since the co-op made gates. This gate is in an old corral.
Though we are very thankful for the moisture, the snow doesn't end the drought for this region. A foot of snow translates to about 1 inch of moisture. Meteorologists said this was a wetter snow, so the 1 1/2-feet-plus of snow was equivalent to about 2 inches of rain. We are in the neighborhood of 10-12 inches behind in moisture after two years of drought.
Even with a blustery day on Monday, a good covering of snow stayed put on the wheat fields, where it insulated the 2013 wheat crop and will provide some timely moisture as it melts.
We had six babies during the storm and lost only one. One mama was smart enough to deliver her newborn in the barn on Monday.
While the old barn is nowhere close to airtight, it did provide some protection from the bitter wind and blowing snow.
.

Instead of attempting to drive out into the pasture south of our house yesterday morning, we walked to see if there were new babies.
No new babies, but it was a beautiful morning in the pasture.
One of the babies seemed to play hide and seek with us among the pasture trees, which provided good protection during the storms.
The babies also found some warmth in the hay bales - in hay spread for bedding ...
... and for their mamas to eat.
I'm thankful the electricity stayed on, and we stayed nice and cozy in our home on the County Line, despite all the snow and wind. 
I enjoyed the snow days. Today, it's back to reality. I don't recall ever having had five snow days in a row at school. Nothing says reality like a return to middle school choir.
