Sleigh Ride

Yesterday, we finally had some accumulative snow. I had heard we had a little snow earlier in the week, however I had accompanied Terry to one of the big draft horse sales and missed the only snow to have fallen up till that point since that strange October blizzard. Temperatures rose enough the next day to melt most of it, and our barnyard looked like a chilly desert of frozen earth when we finally got home later in the week. Saturday's snowfall gave us something to work with, though. Sleigh rides ensued through the fields, blanketed in light, fluffy snow. Tomorrow promises to send temperatures up near 50, and heavy rains are forecasted to fall in eastern Connecticut. If you didn't get a sleigh ride today, you may need to wait for the next "snow event" to cover New England!
