Cold Cows

I recently returned from a trip to California.  It rained a bit and they said it was cold.  It was about 50 to 60 degrees. Cold?  Hah!  I wore flip flops every day and reveled in the comfy weather.


Then I returned to a snowy farm.  It rained a bit and that melted a good portion of the snow.


Then the rain turned to snow.  Big, fat flakes of it.


You have to admit it is pretty.  As long as you don't have to go out in it.


The cows don't seem to mind, but what can they do?  Knock on the door and ask to come in?

Glad I'm not a cow. 


  1. My husband said the cows are pretty sick of the weather. They are looking kind of pitiful and we are hoping they don't get hoof disease from being in the snow, which can happen. It can be treated but it is painful for the cows and hard on the farmer! We spread out rolls of hay just for the cows to have something dry to walk on.

  2. I think we are all over this winter. Had a couple of friends go to Florida and even though they had rain, they were just grateful to be out of thick winter coats and snow boots.

  3. Sure sounds like the CA weather was an improvement over what you returned to, Rebecca. Luckily, this recent storm missed us in Nashua, NH (for a nice change).

  4. Beautiful shots! if a cow does ask to come in, tell her to moo-ve along.
