The other week we had a winter storm system move through our area and it provided some great photographic opportunities of the homestead. When we went out at chore time it was just overcast weather.
It was all hands on deck as we could see the snow coming across the hills and knew we didn't have much time until it was snowing.
Part way through chores the weather changed and it started snowing huge, fluffy snowflakes that really laid down the snow fast. Mr. Moon was calling for his supper, before it was seasoned with snowflakes.
I couldn't believe how heavy it was coming down, not really blowing, which was good, but just coming thick and heavy. Here CW takes the bull his supper.
Fiddle, in the milking stanchion, is wondering what just happened to the weather and why I am standing there taking pictures when there is milking to do and hay to go eat, and a shelter to seek.

It snowed all that night and all the next day. Around chore time the clouds broke up and the setting sun came out and shone on a pristine landscape.
A much appreciated supper partaken of.
More supper being distributed by MJW. He is our right hand man at chore time!

Been a while since we've seen the moon - look way up!
Soaking up the last few rays!
Icicles hanging from my stanchion roof.
They made a great subject as the sun started going down and changed their coloring.
A silhouette evening.
Just love the way those icicles look!
Even the eastern sky was putting on a display.
Remember, you can't have the beauty of a silver lining, without the dark clouds!
