Time to invest in a snowblower. You will be less stressed if you get one. I know money is tight this year, but seriously give it a big thought for next year. The animals will love you for it.

Ahh, you'll be getting it first. If we're lucky up here in PEI, the storm fizzles out somewhat but even here, the forecast is for a big one. *sigh*

Sounds like you're ready, though - that's all you can do.

I hope the weather doesn't get too bad and that things are more manageable this time. It sounds like you've got things really well planned out, though.

Batton down the hatches.....I live down in Missouri by the Mississippi river...we are just starting to get hit. We already have a thick glaze of ice on everything(powerlines included)...they are calling for up to an inch plus of freezing rain and sleet and 3-7 inches of snow in my area...go up north an hour and they are in blizzard warnings with12-24 inches plus of snow. This is an area that doesn't see blizzard warnings but once every 25-30 years. For us power outages will be occurring before too long with 40 mph winds and temps dipping below zero before wind chills. Good luck! :)

I LOVE that picture! And agree that's a bold rooster. Maybe he's checking everything out to report back to others in the barn. ;)

Stay safe and don't take any chances with travel - if you do go make sure you have some portable food and drink with you and a brightly coloured flag to attach to the aerial in case of ditching. Stay with your vehicle and don't try to walk out.
We will be getting this too - I see baked bread in my immediate future - lol! But not on the Vermont Bun Baker this year!

A barn full of hay, shed full of wood, pantry full of food and I'm all set. Bring it on.

I say, "Brilliant idea!" to the person that suggested dog crates for the rabbits & chickens, so as to bring them in the house during a cold snap. Great idea.

The barn is beautiful. I love how it photographs every time.

I want to paint that barn! From the warm, snuggly, safety of my studio I want to paint that barn. But then I would miss the smell of the wood stove.

I can't even begin to imagine 30 inches on top of what you already have.

We're getting hammered already. Ice and snow. Sounds like you are READY! Don't even think about going to work tomorrow if it is ice, even in the big old SUV ride. Good luck, thinking of you.

Jenna...just in case you end up home-bound...check out these musicians on Youtube: The Avett Brothers. You might especially enjoy "Weight of Lies" or "Murder in the City" (about the love of family.) Thought you might enjoy them since you expressed admiration for Iron and Wine. From the mountains of North Idaho!

They're getting hip to back yard chickens in Springfield MO.

I was going to ask about the little building in back of the barn too. So what are you going to do with it? Is it in good shape? I love old buildings. And I love that barn. Just the way it is.

I just bought 2 Avett Bros CDs today. I love them already.

Jenna, I hope you are safe and warm right now.

Hey, wanted to email you but the one on your profile doesnt work. Right now Oprah is doing a show on small farms, sustainable happy meat, food etc. You should email them and who knows you might get featured... Oprah has some free range happy hens next door and is very firm that she is happy to eat those eggs everyday. Now at the Cargil factory feed lot inside right now, scary. They where the only comapny who would let them in to film. Love the comment "you shouldnt eat meat if your not willing to see how it becomes food" Love the true being shown.

This is why east coasters have to roll their eyes a bit when west coasters just can't resist saying something like: I had coffee on the deck this morning, then went on a hike before work. Got so warm, I took off my sweater and was find in my t-shirt.

Sorry. Just. Couldn't. Resist! I do not miss the tough winters of the east.

I wanted to ask, what's the plan for the lambs? I understood that they're meat animals too - will they be slaughtered on the farm too?
