Lake Effect Snow at its Finest

Lake Effect Snow:  snow squalls resulting from cold acrctic air traveling over a relatively warm body of water.  The cold, dry air picks of the lake moisture and deposits it in the form of snow over land.


Lake Effect snow bands coming from Lake Erie which is about 38 miles North of me, and coming across the farm with average gusts between 25 & 35 mph.


Lake Effect snow on Chelsea's face..............


Lake Effect Snow burying Chelsea as she insists on laying outside the 3 sided-lean-to. 


Danby wondering why his sister Chelsea is not under the overhang of the barn.......


Ethan taking Lake Effect Snow in stride as Danby admires his calm, cool, collective attitude during the snow squalls.


Seasoned sheep enjoying the snow which has been very, very minimal this winter.


Chelsea trying to decide if she should come in out of the blowing snow......


And Chelsea deciding that she likes doing what sheep do best......hanging out in a snow storm in February.

That silly girl, the snow makes her cute face look all out of kilter! My horse hung out in it all day today. Though she felt the wind was hiding Saber Tooth Tigers at times.

Chelsea photos are way too funny! Thanks for coming by my blog the the other day, sorry I have been sort of quiet lately. Hope all is well with you. :)
