    Sorry didn't finish my thought... This was because of a miles long line of traffic (most of which was headed to Dartmouth Hitchcock), not because she's afraid of snow.

    So the snow started here about 3:30 pm yesterday and is still coming down...as of 7 am this morning we had 6.2" of white fluffy stuff. DH and I went out about 3:30 am to open up driveways and shovel a few places so people could get out if needed. We will go back out once the snow has finished.

    I can tell you that our goats are not happy!! DH shoveled some of the snow out of their area so they would come out of their shed :lol:

    At this point we are figuring our 4 does to be bred as we haven't seen them come back into heat. :fl
    Obie- day 145 is March 26th 2017

    Melanie- day 145 is April 12th 2017

    Of course DS(11) is excited as Coco and Melanie are due across his birthday again this year!!

    Oh babs, I am so envious of people who don't know what a snow route is... I wish I didn't need to know either!

    Snowing hard here now. Thanks for sending it over :lol:
