Punxsutawney Phil was Right!!

Dang it anyhow...I sure was hoping Punxsutawney Phil was going to be wrong this year...but, the forecast last night was for snow until 10 a.m. this morning. The wind woke me up early and I could see the white outside...dang!



I step outside the back door to go feed...lovely...dang!
Just before I went out, My Man opened the door
and 12 inches of snow that had piled up against
the door fell into the back room...dang!





I'm guessing we got 3 inches or so...but with the wind blowing it everywhere...who knows? But, I knew exactly what the inside of the barn was going to look like...





Yep, lovely...dang!



I load up the wheelbarrow with hay for the spoiled boys and opened the back door...






OMG...who's horse is this?????
I think it's Colt...I think...









Oh yea...that's Colt...I'd recognize that a$$ anywhere!




Anybody recognize these Yahoos?





Oh...look...it's Catnip 'n Stetson!!!
There's so much snow on them and inside the lil'
Mustang Barn, I can't tell if they stayed
in it last night or not!!!
Dang!



The pups had a great time romping in the snow...

Cindy Sue looks like she rolled in it.
Well, kinda like me...I hit a badger hole...
landed face first in the snow...dang!!






I think there's a walkway under there...somewhere.

Would you believe My Man and I rode in our
arena yesterday?


Dang...when's spring coming?!?!?!?


PS~~I'm leaving tomorrow morning for Portland...yuck...double dang! 2 & 1/2 days of training for my Agricultural Survey job...see y'all next weekend!!!

Wow! Look at that snow. Your poor critters look so cold. We finally got rain here today. Hadn't had any precipitation in a long while. Really needed it.

Be careful on your travels.

Andrea said...

I'm impatiently waiting for spring too! But your photos of snowy faced Colt are fun to enjoy in the meantime! :)

Country Whispers said...

Wow! We finally have had no snow and temps. around 55 today. But if you have snow then I'm sure that it will be heading this direction before long. I really need Spring & NOW!!!

Ed said...

Fantastic pics of the kids! FYI! If you are heading in on I-84 take 30 min and check out Multnomah Falls just outside Troutdale, you can't miss it there is parking in the middle of the highway and a great rest stop and some great waterfall shots.
Have fun...Ed

Tracey said...

Not of fan of the four letter S word... We had some on the hill across the road but nothing much more than that.

Andrea said...

Colt looks so cute with all that snow on his face!! LOL!! That wind must have been really blowing. That is a lot of snow to wake up to. Ugh....

I hope you drive safe! I hate driving in snow!

Jocelyn said...

Please drive safely. too bad we didnt know you were coming we would have had you come over and ride !

Maybe next time !

prairierunner said...

Now we could use the snow (we still need runoff) but man I'd like it to be spring..............whine, whine all I do is whine.

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

Bbbrrr! Dang girl! It's snowing here, too. Wind blowing it all over the darn place.
Poor Colt! He even had the stuff up his nostrils. Doesn't he know that he's supposed to be standing with his big butt facing the wind..not his cute muzzle.

Catnip and Stetson look like they weathered the storm well with their thick fuzzy coats. Gosh they are so cute!!

Stay warm and safe...I'll miss ya!
