Is It Really Winter?

While letting the chickens out this morning I glanced down the little valley below me and saw the magical misty view above. I’m having great difficulty with remembering it’s the beginning of January though. Today I was out clearing a bit more of the poplar trees and had to strip down to my t-shirt. When I came in at 4 the temperature was still 12 degrees. I hope to make the most of the good weather over the next couple of days as I believe we’ve snow forecast for a few days time.

Thinking about the temperature reminds me I have a weather station to install – yet another job to add to the list but it will make it much easier in the long run to keep track of the weather. It’s not that difficult to do it’s just deciding on the best site that is within the distance to send the data back to the base station, decisions, decisions, something I’m really not good at.

It seems to me that you are getting better at decisions as you have to make them every day on a farm.
