Maybe MJ will be wrong...maybe the double dopplers and the weather stations have made a mistake, maybe.......This morning I buried my head under the pillow and tried not to hear, I wriggled under the comforter ( it was a nice place to be, I'd love to have stayed !!smile) and hoped it would be finished before I had to come out. Long term forcasts are consistent....its going to be a BAD winter. I'm not a fair weather cowgirl, I can do rain and I can do mud, wind doesn't bother me ( I came here from the windy NW of England) ..but snow and frost are a different matter. Two years ago when Greg had his previous back surgery we had the worst blizzard in umptyump years. I remember vividly having to dig out gates before I could even get into the ranch, every water trough was frozen solid and froze again as I filled them. I trudged the 40 acres in the snow searching for the animals, dug ditches and hated every moment. I used to love to watch the pretty snowflakes, I loved to see the pure white snow settle and blow into drifts......2 years ago I didn't see beauty..I saw mud, black snow and ice and I was miserable !! I was SO lucky, we had help that arrived in the form of family and friends and my sanity was saved...just. I listen to the forcasts and memories come flooding back..Gregs surgery is going to be early in the year....please God be kind to me and send El Nina somewhere else !!!!!
Its me, Maureen, (the Boss)
