The snow is falling heavily now. Outside my office window, the sheep move across their pasture in a row. They walk quite slowly, oblivious to the snow and the cold.

I heard this morning that the two goats who shared their pasture this winter were recently killed by coyotes. I've never worked at a place like this, where a staff meeting includes reports on chicken and goat safety.

I will miss the view from my window, a living Currier and Ives scene with old barn, split rail fencing and the sheep.

The snow is falling earlier than predicted, and I am happy about that. Last January, we had a big snowstorm in late afternoon, and it took me nearly 3 hours to drive home.

Love your comment about getting reports on livestock: very funny and true at the same time!
