First lighting of the wood stove!

Tonight we lit the wood stove for the first time, with the temp going to dip to 27 it was just lovely.

We had to clean the chimney first, and to do that the easy way we brought up the forklift - so there was a carnival ride of sorts going on around here.

What happened to winter?

Strange weather this year, today we reached 90 degree's, last year this time we had snow.

2009 the weekend of the 9th - 11th of October brought us 10 inches of snow.  Today, heat and a little bit of rain/thunderstorm in the evening.

We purchased our final load of hay, and Mike and Trenton went to pick it all up today.

Trenton got to drive the truck through the field while Mike and two friends helped pick up the bales.

We now have just under 200 small square bales.  Should last us a year!
