Our winter weather has been sporadic for sure. This past week one of Kathryn’s friends visited with a plan to go XC skiing. They caught the last two days of snow before rain and warm temperatures melted it all away. Instead of XC skis and snowshoes it’s rubber boots and trying to avoid the soggy ground as Kathryn takes the dogs for a walk around the pasture.
Since the temperatures were a balmy 20 degrees I decided to put the chains on my tractor. I brought two loads of wood into the garage and then parked the carry-all; probably for the winter…. My tractor chains are the double link and super heavy. I hang them on the side of the barn when not in use so that when I want them I can loop them over my shoulder and stagger to the nearest tractor tire, I attached my snow blower, so I guess I am ready for winter now…..
I took the dogs for an hour long snowshoe through the woods and up the hill. 1st time out on snowshoes for the winter.
