First post since Wpress updated, bear w me & new buttons- ugh.
It’s winter, we get it- but this is just crazy. At the very least it is frigging cold. The birds are chirping and there is more daylight. Think the clocks roll ahead next week. No signs of a Robin bird yet- so we know 1.) they are smart birds and 2.) no early spring. Curse you Punxsutawney Phil- the groundhog who saw his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter.
Farmer winter weather forecast says- here we go again. Pix via NOAA.
California is getting slammed w much needed rain & likely mudslides. If that water vapor continues to gain strength on a path towards the Midwest, it’s going to mean even more snow. Currently there is a HUGE snow, ice event heading to the Midwest and over our farm. Maybe 10-12 inches of snow and freezing temps. Going to have to get some more milk, bread, etc., bc driving is going to be hazardous. Millions of folks are going to be impacted.
No doubt people are going to loose power, the homeless are going to need shelter. Monday will likely be a snow day w kids off school yet again. The animals coats are as thick as ever although our domesticated rabbit escaped after a goat knocked over her hutch. “Ginger Rabbit,” was crazy so she has a good chance to survive.
If u glance back up at pix, put on your tinfoil hat and ask if that is Mother Nature, haarp, geoengineering, cloud seeding or what? No answers, but dang sure looks ominous. Been noticing somewhat of a correlation to snow events in the Midwest & earthquakes in Chile & Alaska. Just a casual observance, but the antennae are up.

Whew, it is snowing like a bat out of Haides. Our family is all bunkered in for the weekend and coming days. It is cold and plain old nasty as
winter weather is upon us in the Midwest.
The days of childhood w a crap car come to mind as we always had to stock up w necessities of bread, eggs and milk before a snow storm. We ate bread soaked in milk w sugar on top and thought it a grand treat.
Today’s treat is everyone staying home. Everything is canceled. The farm is frozen as are the lakes. Animals are fed, their water is dethawed- at least somewhat. Counting the days til spring is a good occupation!
There is no place like home.
Stay warm & safe. Follow @ahrcanum on Twitter for an abbreviated version of topics that trip our trigger.

Holy cow batman, know it’s winter but minus 10 degrees air temp? Yep, and the wind is howling. Dunno how to figure windchill but kids are throwing water off porch and it’s turning to snow. Cray.
Right now there is calm before the storm on the farm, but it’s not going to last long by the looks of the sky. Rumbling noises abound and a wallop of a thunderstorm is imminent.
We need the rain though, May has brought only one inch so far. Much to our dismay weather forecast is calling for a chance of frost. The other farms have one inch high corn and while we’ve held off planting, they have to be nervous. Our fruit trees are blooming and flower beds planted. Pray no frost!
Can’t imagine those folks in Oklahoma what the sky must have looked like. Might head to the basement just in case. Stay safe friends.
