Yikes! So soon? I can't remember a snow that early back in Jersey. Sending you some warm California sunshine....we have plenty to spare out here.

Could make for an interesting barn raising! Just tossed my donation at ya, wish it could be more. Will be thinking of y'all this weekend, while I curse our 80-degree weather down here >:(

Wow! I've been angry and frustrated because we're halfway through October and are still lingering in the upper 80's. This is a bit on the overly warm side even for us.

With 80 degree temps forecasted this weekend the Denver area and snow on the horizon for next week, you never know what fall has in store for you. I for one can't wait. Maybe you just reframe the herding class as dog sledding 101..."Come by"..."Hold"..."MUSH!"

I remember back in '08 we had snow on the ground before Halloween. Frosty jack-o-lanterns are a weird sight!

You must be higher in the mountains than I am, it's still just raining here. Although it's a cold, bone-dampening rain.

The silkies don't know enough to hang out in the barn, so I have a bunch of sopping wet chickens out there.

Gotta love La Nina years. We're gearing up to get trounced again here in the northwest. Should be fun.

October 4, 1987 - upstate New York got two feet of snow. Power was out in some areas for a couple of weeks. This ain't so bad.

Weenie
Herding happens in less than ideal weather. You can't cancel because of a few snow flakes.

I'm surprised with the barn raising scheduled that you even had herding on the calendar for the same time. Something like raising a barn is going to take a lot of your attention and energy.

Priorities, you pick what works for you.

The weather was what VPR told me on the way to and from work today, that is where I got the forecast.

Sorry about the lack of photos, my camera can not take night photos and it was awful weather to be out in.

I canceled because while herding takes place in all sorts of weather, my 2WD light pickup can not drive two hours over the mountains on route 9 if there is five inches of snow on the roads or bad weather. It was a matter of safety. All herding lessons are a minimum of a 4 hour roundtrip in good weather.


barn raising is a community event, and it's Sunday. Herding was 9AM Saturday morning. The only preparation for Sunday was buying the materials at Home Depot. About 15 people will be here to help Sunday.
