The snow filled up our rain gauge. Twice. So I guess we got at least ten inches so far.
And it’s not supposed to stop till midnight.
It’s supposed to get down to 11 degrees tonight, which sounds pretty cold, but they say it’s 13 right now.
Won’t be much different I guess.
Luckily CG got a bunch of movies, since we don’t have a TV at this house. We have a kerosene heater and plenty of fuel to last until tomorrow if we lose power. We have food, fresh eggs and plenty of off-flavored goats milk. (still okay in coffee, but not yet for drinking)
Mikey, who freshened last week with quads, and who has always had great tasting milk, is suddenly giving milk with an off flavor. I did a CMT (california mastitis test), and that came up negative, so I’m going to take a milk sample by the lab on Tuesday for a culture. They will do a more comprehensive mastitis test and check the somatic cell count. I’ve had this happen with a couple of other does, right after freshening, and their milk did turn sweet after a few weeks.
The snow is really starting to blow. So far no ice. But it really is a mess out there.
