Farm #LikeAGirl

Today, we came pretty close to missing all of the Super Bowl Sunday hoopla. Why?

This is what seven inches of snow looks like on our farm. Then we got another three inches throughout the day. And then it blew, and blew, and blew.

Yes, I grew up in Canada. Yes, I actually like snow. But when snow blows it isn't much fun.

We had put out extra feed and bedding for the cattle yesterday because we knew this weather was coming. The cattle would be ok because of the steps we took yesterday, however, that doesn't mean that they didn't need a little extra warmth.

It doesn't make sense to put out more straw for bedding when it is still snowing and blowing because it will be quickly covered up. So, the Boy and I waited until two this afternoon to venture back outside.
This is how the day went.

Head to the barn and begin loading square straw bales into the back of the mini truck. Start the mini truck. Battery dead. Hook up charger. Wait. Wait. Wait. Ok now we are ready to go. Head to the first pen. Unload bales, wade through snow drifts, get bedding down.

Load ourselves back up, move to the next pen. Get the mini truck stuck.

The Boy goes to get the tractor so we can pull it out while I unload the bales and drag them to the windbreak. Thinking 1. this is a great workout. 2. I wonder how many calories I am burning. 3. Man I am out of shape!

Hook the tractor up to the mini truck. Get it unstuck. Get more bales for the next pen. Get the mini truck stuck again. Repeat all steps and thoughts posted above. 

Needless to say we were a little behind schedule for our Super Bowl Fun, but we made it and had a great time with friends. I really didn't care who won the game, but thought it was good football and a fun halftime show. And I loved this commercial. 

And I am happy to say I Farm #likeagirl.
