Lambs First Lake Effect Snow

Yesterday and the rest of the weekend Northeastern Ohio will be "blessed" with Lake Effect snow and since I live in a secondary snowbelt, I will be "blessed" with above average snow. As long as I can get out of my driveway I don't totally flip out about it but when the 800 ft driveway that has drifting issues gets questionable, then I have a lot of choice words for Lake Effect snow:)

The lambs from this past spring seemed to be enjoying their first Lake Effect snow.
Miss. Averill was enjoying her silly little self in the snow and being proud of it.
To prove that little lambs could handle the snow just like the big sheep, they marched their little selves up to the garden barn where they know the grain is stored.

Why is it that my lambs can march in a straight line and my 8th graders can not walk down the hall in a straight line if their life depended on it?

Fletcher also was enjoying the snow lips he could make:)

And Spirit and Abby, the mature and more experienced Lake Effect snow sheep were just enjoying the view from the new shelter.

And obviously Monique finds no humor in me taking a picture of her in the snow. She just prefers to bite my bite when I don't feed grain fast enough in the morning.

So while the snow flies outside I will attempt to grade some papers and look through some of the seed catalogs that I have gotten this past week.......I esp. love the Baker Creek Heirloom one;)
Definitely a good day to stay inside and think about this and that and enjoy all the firewood I chopped last week when I was pretending to be Mrs. Grizzly Adams.

Cold here and maybe a chance of snow. Can't hardly stand these frigid temps and it's suppose to be that way all week. Does one of your little sheepies sport a dashing red coat?
Stay safe and warm!

Tammy,
Yes, these below 20 temps are just no fun! Little Glover decide that NOW would be a good time to roo his fleece away so since he is such a squirt, he is now sporting Dixie's fleece coat because I don't want him to catch a chill:)

NW PA here, we are getting the other side of the lake effect and it was a great day to bundle up in front of a fire with a nice bowl of ham and bean soup (which is what we did this evening).

I love your sheep photos, they always brighten my day :)

Nice shelter! I hope we get snow again this year so I can see what the goats do. I think that would be very funny.

Dear Mrs. Grizzly Adams,
Crack up post! LOVE the one about the 8th graders!! So true! My Border Collie once demonstrated to my students how to stay focused on something. Amy at Wheely Wooly Farm

What a cozy post. I love your lambs and your pics. The lambs in a line are hilarious. Don't feel bad about your eighth graders. I teach high school, and they couldn't focus that long either, ha, ha.

Kristi,

I know you're looking forward to tomorrow as much as I am. Lack of focus also happens with the younger ones. Let's start practicing our snow dance!
