Greeting May With Snow…

Even in the land of crazy weather it is not often that we celebrate the 1st of May with a power outage due to a winter storm. My favorite blonde cowgirl and I checked cattle Saturday late morning amidst a few snow flurries, still a bit in disbelief of the weather man’s report of a winter storm for Sunday.

Regardless of my desires to see sunshine and warmth, Sunday afternoon brought 8 inches of wet snow, a mean north wind, and fairly widespread power outages in rural Dawson County.

We lost power at our house. We lost power at Will Feed. We lost power at our pasture ground.

It’s amazing how different things can look in a short period of time. 

After being out of power for 24 hours, things have returned to a more normal state. 

We are hoping for sunshine and warmer temperatures this week as our second set of cattle from the Lazy YN Ranch are scheduled to come in today.

*Stay tuned for Video #2 which will be up on Thursday 🙂

    I was sure happy to see the sun yesterday morning!! We lucked out with the power but there are a few to the north of us that are still out.
