I knew it couldn't last. We only have a couple of inches of snow on the ground, but that is because it is all too busy blowing sideways to settle down anywhere. We had a high temperature of 13 degrees today with a persistent 30-50mph wind that has not let up in four days. The donkeys have not come out of the barn in all that time. They tolerate a lot of weather, but the wind up here on Hellwind Hill is just too much. They are not at all happy about it, especially since just last week, they were still enjoying dinner on the patio.
I've been taking some hay out and scattering it all over the field and they had been spending most of their time wandering around looking for all of it, a game they greatly enjoy.
