Calm Before the Storm

We savoured today … worked slowly enjoying the last of the warmth … the chance to work in my t-shirt … the crunchy leaves … wearing my dogeared hard toed runners … brushing dry donkey coats. We brought in the hoses from the paddocks … put the snow plow on the Bully … and tipped the feed bins in the lower paddock over to keep them dry. I stayed out until I could see winter coming a few kilometers down the road in the black storm clouds of the Colorado Clipper headed our way. We’re all dug in – snug and warm and dry. So long fall! Goodbye!
