I'm glad it's warmed up into the 20's during the day and the teens at night. That arctic air was just too much. We didn't get as cold as other places around here. We seem to be at the right elevation and in our little bowl that keeps us warmer than down lower, or up by Marion. The coldest we got was around -12, and up by Marion it was down to -38! The Valley got colder, too. Last week when the valley was in an inversion for days and all cloudy and cold, we were basking in the sun and above freezing temperatures. Life is good! :-)
I'm going slowly on the combing of the goats. I don't like to take off their cashmere when it's cold, but they are letting loose of it, so I must. They still have their guard hairs and some of the cashmere. The one I've done so far is doing just fine and she's just a kid still. For such a little goat, she had a lot of cashmere to give me! It's got a nice fine crimp, too. I'm glad I kept her!
Boy, the country sure is having some wild weather! The tornadoes in the south, the warmer temps in the north, it's very interesting. My prayers go out to the people affected by the tornadoes. The animals, too.
Stay safe everyone!
