Well the cold weather continues on our little homestead. It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago it was so hot. As I’m typing this, there are snow flurries falling and a strong east wind. If the weather man is right we might end up with a small covering of snow. If the winds would ease up and the sun come out, it would warm up quite a bit! Then I could at least turn the heater off in the greenhouse.
This morning we discovered that our kids pet rabbit had been killed by a raccoon. It some how managed to open the door to the barn, then ripped into the cage. We’ve never had a coon get into the barn before, although one did dig into the chicken pen last year. So we are all very sad right now, especially the children. The rabbit “Daisy” was a birthday gift not long ago for our oldest.
