Theres a winter storm brewing and heading our way. Looks like we could get quite a bit of snow. We don't really need it but after the drought 2 years ago we will take it. It will just be hard on the newborn's if they wonder out of the shed.

AN ALBERTA CLIPPER WILL DEVELOP OVER NORTHERN ALBERTA THIS EVENING THEN TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD ACROSS SOUTHERN MANITOBA ON SUNDAY. A FEW SHOWERS OF RAIN OR FREEZING RAIN WILL DEVELOP AHEAD OF THE SYSTEM, THEN TURN TO SNOW SUNDAY MORNING. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO GIVE 5 TO 10 CENTIMETRES OF SNOW WITH THE HIGHEST AMOUNTS OVER WESTERN AREAS, ESPECIALLY IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE RIDING AND DUCK MOUNTAINS.

THERE MAY ALSO BE SOME BLOWING SNOW ALONG WITH THE SNOW GIVING VISIBILITIES LESS THAN 1 KILOMETRE AT TIMES, HOWEVER THESE POOR VISIBILITIES ARE NOT EXPECTED TO LAST MORE THAN THREE HOURS AT ANY ONE LOCALITY. CONDITIONS WILL START TO IMPROVE SUNDAY EVENING IN MOST AREAS.

THE ABOVE WARNING REGIONS MAY BE ALTERED SLIGHTLY AS THE SYSTEM GETS CLOSER TO MANITOBA AND ITS TRACK BECOMES MORE CLEAR. PERSONS PLANNING TO TRAVEL ON SUNDAY SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR POOR ROAD CONDITIONS.



And to think we need to haul bales tomorrow! :help:

rancher, ranchwife, I'd gladly send you all the rain we got overnight. I thought it was getting sloppy around here before with the snow melting. I was wrong!!! Yuck! :|

We didn't get any snow but it's still drizzling on and off. I just dreaded going out this morning and checking the calves. The stupid little buggers have a big shed they can get into to stay dry but noooo, they have to stand out in the rain and get sopping wet! I'd better hit the local feedstore tomorrow and stock up on scour pills! Damn weather!

Sorry about whining about the moisture, rancher and Oldtimer and ranchwife. I know you guys need the moisture and can't get it, sure wish there was some way to pass it on to you. I've had enough of snow and rain to last me awhile! I long to put away my overalls and rubber boots till next winter.

Shelly, Was 68 degrees here and the sun was bright. No mud to speak of, spring grass is shooting up, and the calves are kicking up their heels.
Fruit trees are blooming and the frogs are croaking. Come on down!

Shelly & 3words, We're getting the same slop here in n.e. BC.

Second night of rain. Keep rolling out straw for dry bedding for the calves, but pretty futile as seems like the frost is coming out. Pens are a right bloody mess.

Might be changing to snow as I write. Sure hope so.

Take care.

They say snow in our forecast towards the end of the week. Don't know if that'll be much better than the rain we got. I do know it'll be damn icy this morning! I'd better put on the skates!
