Surprise Snow and Bitter Cold

Thursday brought a surprise to Connecticut - snow! Although it had been forcasted that we would have occasional snow "squalls", it fell throughout the day, and some areas were reported to have as much as four inches. We had about an inch here at the farm, but by the time the cold front came through, the temperatures dropped and the wind blew (at times up to 50 miles an hour), blowing the snow away. Friday saw temperatures drop to below freezing with the wind chill, and the horses stayed in the barn. In spite of the cold weather and wind today, they will go out to eat at their round bales. I am sure they will hit the ground running!
