Snow

Postby Oldtimer » Mon Feb 14, 2005 7:30 am

Well Macon, no blizzard to get everybody talking about- but I did wake up to snow- little skiff on the ground, but its starting to come down heavier- supposed to get less than an inch-- 27 degrees out...

Its really funny if you watch the animals you can predict better than the weatherman-- Like I said in another post- yesterday morning the bulls were tearing the place up- horses all acting snorty-- then in the afternoon I saw 9 bald eagles hunting like crazy around the hayfields- right at sunset, I was watching the cows and horses-- both were running around bucking and kicking- fighting each other- looked like a meadow full of 6 year old kids-- then last night the coyotes were singing from all directions......They flat knew this weather was changing........

Buckskin- ended up with about an inch and a half of wet snow- most is melting on the roads altho I hear Hiway 2 is slicker than snot...

Wasn't sure I would like this new format, but it does offer many more features- as long as we don't lose many of the old ranchers.net family I think it will work- my fear was that some computer dummies like me would be scared away..................

I counted 15 bald eagles between our place and a little town sixty miles away the other day. Endangered? I don't think so.

Had 24 Bald Eagles in our neighbors field last fall after deer hunting when they hauled out the scraps onto a plowed field. And I don't know how many crows raising heck around them.
