May is the new December!

Yet another late winter storm is sweeping its way across the country. I know lots of folks have snow and truly nasty weather, which fortunately we are avoiding. However, tonight we've got wind gusts up to 50 knots, and we're setting new record low temps for our part of the world. Um, yay?

Put another log on the fire!

Since it's been in the upper 80s for the last month, the boys have completely shed out their winter costs. I washed all the winter blankets several weeks ago and put them away. Tonight, I pulled everything back out of storage and rugged everyone up.

Seriously, mom? This rug is SO out of season.

With the gusty wind, blanketing was more challenging than usual. Echo had the grace to spook at his blanket (which he's worn several dozen times) AFTER I put it on him. Doofus. I'm really glad I cancelled my lesson tonight! And of course, everyone's been running around like complete loonies.

Loonies, I tell you.

Total loonies.

I hope everyone's staying warm and toasty tonight!

  1. Haha, they sure do look concerned! I think we may have stolen your warm weather, it's supposed to be almost 90 this weekend which is pretty much unheard of this time of year in our area!

    1. They looks so calm, but I assure you they had the zoomies. Unfortunately, everyone rolled as soon as I put the blankets on. Sigh.

  7. Ugh! It's blowing it's ass off (local expression) here too. More of the same through Monday.

    Val was just on the end of his lead like a kite due to the tractor cover ballooning around suddenly. Should be a fun weekend to ride ;D
