    Well here in the Pacific Northwest...central WA is finally getting some snow! I am actually kind of happy because it has been SOO cold this last couple weeks and the overcast skies are making it a bit warmer. Anyone else getting snowed? I know a lot of you have already had a bunch of snow, this is the first snow of the year for us! I don't think my goats are going to be to happy by tomorrow morning though! They always make a little trail to the water, then to the hay bales and back to their houses, the rest of their pen remains untouched. :ROFL:

    At times I think they wish I would build them a wooden bridge piled with straw so they can get to their food and water without getting wet.

    I like one pretty snowfall a year and then it needs to go bye-bye quickly! You guys can keep the snow out there in the pacific northwest......no real snow amounts here as of yet, knock on wood! That being said though, I had rather have snow then cold wet rain.

    Ditto! My poor goats just stand in the barn bleating for me to come out.

    (I like having just enough snow to go snowboarding... once.)

    We have only gotten about 3" here so far--most of that melted when it rained the other day. I did go to work at the ski resort last weekend though (2 hours northweast of here) and they had quite a bit more than us plus all that they "made" on top of that.

    Personally, I love snow and look forward to winter every year...I might feel differently if I wasn't a ski instructor, I guess! LOL! :greengrin:

    Wow...3 feet!! Well, ended up snowing about 5 inches here on Tuesday and Wednesday it's melted down some and rained a bit, now it's iced up. I guess we're supposed to get some more rain and snow mix at around 2 am. There are few roads closed here due to the crappy roads. I just hope we have some nice powdery snow for Christmas...I always love white Christmas's!! :snow:

    Ugh! The only snow I like is snow on school days and X-mas. Other than that -- keep the snow!!! Esp since it's looking like we won't have a white christmas after-all!
