I can’t believe here we are again!

We went from a very mild November to WINTER!!! New tires, new batteries, feeding three times a day, and today – no water in the morning. Well I don’t get dressed for work without a shower and poor old Mike spent half the day on his tummy under the house putting new heat tape on the pipes.

Being “trailer trash” is no fun. We can’t wait to start building the house in the spring.

Today has hovered around -8F, snow on and off, and we are expecting -20F tonight. Luckily Helena seems to miss the really awful snowstorms which hit the mountains, go north and south and miss us.

We have had the usual mishaps with frozen waterlines, but the sun shone which makes winter in Montana sparkle. We can’t understand why the horses would rather be out in the wind and snow, not snuggling up under the shelters we built this summer. Go figure….
