South Field Herd on Plateau
The pigs above are from the south herd. They have a deep hay pack in the windbreak of the roughly 8′ tall compost pile that is on the south field plateau. Chuck, daughter of Charlie, is checking out the tip of a large rock sticking up through the snow pack.
We had a spot of cold weather down into the negative teens but it has now warmed up quite nicely. We probably won’t see weather that cold again this year. It’s been warm enough that we’ve not lit a fire for a few days.
On top of it being cold we had very high winds. Strong enough to take down quite a few branches and big trees, clearing the dead and week wood from the forests. The biggest tree, an 80′ spruce, fortunately fell away from the cottage. Had it fallen in our direction it might have just barely reached us. Then we would have gotten to test our ferro-cement roof. I would rather not.
Chuck did see her shadow.
