What Happened to Spring?

There is some bad weather headed this way for the weekend. That is the news from the weather Channel.

A wild ride for Friday

Heavy snow and fierce winds will move southward and eastward out of Colorado into New Mexico, the Texas Panhandle, western Oklahoma and Kansas where many locations will pick up a foot or more of snow. Blizzard conditions will occur at times across eastern Colorado, western Kansas and the Oklahoma/Texas Panhandles. The drifts could be in the double digits of feet high !! The Plains in this area have been desert dry so any moisture is welcome. This could be one of the most impressive March blizzards for this area on record. More...

Even though I could do without the predicted cold temperatures, I am very happy we are getting some rain because this area can certainly use it. In a perfect world this weather would have been earlier in the month before any of the goat moms were due to kid though. I have quite a few does right now that are due to kid anytime. Now I know what they have been waiting for. They have been holding onto their kids until this storm moves into the area. They did not forget about The Doe Code of Honor this year! One doe however must have missed the weather forecast because she kidded before the storm with two colorful bucklings. More on the proud mother and new goat kids later. I have to charge the batteries in my camera.

Well, atleast you got one that's on your side. Hopefully, it'll ease up before it gets to you. Got my fingers crossed!

It sounds like a wild ride all the way around. I hope the does continue to wait, just until the weather system passes!

I understand the batteries. Some of my friends laughed at me for using all my batteries on a goat. But she doesn't have goats. You don't understand if you haven't ever had a baby goat around.They are too cute.

Stay safe in the rough weather. You know that is what they were waiting on. Happy kidding!

Hey, don't forget to get extra batteries for your flashlights, and extra firewood, and gas for the snowblower, and...

Well, if you do get socked in by 12-foot high drifts, we expect extra blog posts while you're stuck in the house.

Good luck!!
