Slowdown on the Prairie

 

We awoke this morning with an unexpected blanket of snow on the ground. Once again Oklahoma and God has provided an unexpected weather change. Yes, it has been very cold the last couple of days (for Oklahoma) but the weather man predicted just a dusting.

When the ground is covered in snow, everything seems to come to a stall and there is a quiet reverance on the prairie. John says it’s God’s way of saying, “time to slow down”. Cows still have to be fed and ice on the ponds must be broke for watering. But, once that’s done life goes at a much slower pace. A hearty soup can be put in the crock pot and with a pot of steaming coffee one can relax with a good book or just enjoy the view.

  1. It’s been a hard few days on my chicken flock. Temps from 1 to14 degrees at night. Been a real challenge to keep the chickens supplied with fresh water. We got only about 1/2 inch of snow.
    Happy Gardening
