NO DASHING

Out of the house to feed and water the critters.
Headed back inside.  Slim is ahead of me in both pictures.
View of barn in the snow.  Looks like we don't have a driveway.
Monitor view from all four cameras at once.  Barn, front porch, den door and back of house.
You can tell this old gal isn't going to be dashing through the snow this year.  My Cagney & Lacy surveillance team keeps a close eye on things in the snow covered NOL-NOC Estates with all four cameras.  Still shots from video aren't very good but you can get an idea of what we have in this part of Oklahoma.
  
Ron did not like the cold and snow but he would have been out there plowing a path for me anyway. He would clear our driveway and my walking paths to the barn then get back into the warmth as quickly as possible.  When we lived in Kansas he also would take his tractor up to the church and clear the parking lot and sidewalks.

It is a good thing I don't need to go anywhere and I don't need anything from the store.  Slim and  I will ride out the storm in the warmth of our cozy home, only venturing out to tend to the outdoor family.

  1. Oh my goodness! That looks like hell on wheels and I'm walking around in shorts and a t-shirt. I feel bad for you.

  2. I'm so glad you have Slim there with you while trudging through that snow. So strange - it's about 74 degrees here right now. I turned on the AC last night.

  4. I sympathize....we are expecting a high of 8 today with snow on the ground that isn't melting anytime soon.

  5. I'm glad you are able to tuck up inside in the warm. That looks no fun at all.

  6. Well, I am guessing we are getting some of that frostiness tomorrow and certainly Sunday. We are on the road tomorrow, so hoping we can be safe. Stay warm and cozy!! Keep the home fires burning.

    It is not so bad as long as I can stay indoors. And it is nice to see how glad the cats and chickens are to see me when I arrive with fresh water and food.

    No trudging for Slim. She runs and jumps and often pokes her nose in the snow like she is a snow plow. For a short haired dog, she acts like she is from Alaska. Can't believe you had your AC on.

    It is pretty and I do love looking when there are no tracks yet.

    I could not live in Colorado. You guys have so much of this and I know you laugh at us since you were once an Okie and know we never have snow for long.

    My daughter could barely keep the granddaughter inside long enough to get her coat on gloves on her. The kids love to get in it and sled and make snowmen (snow people).

    Wishing you safe travel. We all made it back from Kansas City (where we were for my brother-in-law's surgery this week) before the snow started. It is always a good feeling to beat the weather.

  13. I just love your cameras. I want to get me the same setup someday. We had snow too but mostly just bitter cold. As I write this it is 8 degrees but the windchill is -3 degrees. How many months til summer??

  14. It's sunny, but cool and breezy here in Hawaii. I don't like snow at all. I lived in New York for 5-1/2 years and detested winter.

  15. Glad you are prepared and have no need to be out in all that snow..

    I love the ability to look outside and see someone at the door and speak to them without having to open the door if I don't know them.

    It is cozy and warm and I love being here, despite the snow. However I am sure I will have cabin fever by the time the thaw arrives.

    Hope to stay safe and warm especially since it now appears that I am getting sick. Hopefully it is only a cold. I had my flu shot so surely it isn't that.

    Not so tough since I have plenty of food oh hand and emergency backup measures if needed.

    I think I got carried away getting the two additional cameras. Two were probably enough that came with the set. I do feel a lot safer having them installed and being able to see around the house and property. The initial set with two cameras, the monitor and the cords, etc was only $199.

    Did you live in NYC or somewhere else in NY state? I know Hawaii has to be a wonderful exchange:)

  17. The Estate looks lovely with the white blanket on-

    Be careful on the slippery stuff there!

  18. Looks like fun to me, but then I've never lived in true snow country for long.

  19. I lived in New York City.

  20. Animals need to be tended no matter how cold it gets. They're lucky to have such a diligent devoted keeper. I've always said I love the snow as long as I don't have to be out in it. We're inundated here in Alberta. Temp yesterday was -37C (34 below zero F) Looks pretty though!

  21. Oh my. I'm glad that you have everything you need. Come to think of it, the weather here is mild (just around the freezing mark) but I didn't leave the house today because I just didn't feel like it.

  22. Why don't you fly out to a warmer place for while :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I feel bad for you. Keep warm. Please don't get sick.
    Here in New York, it is very cold but just ice so far. It is dangerous to drive as well.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I trust you have some sort of alarm for if you slip in the snow.
    Don't take chances please.

  25. What a sweetheart Ron was. I wish he were still with you too. It's hard, I know. Art was gone one winter in Chicago when he went to Mali and Kenya with our son who was serving in the Peace Corps. That would be the time when we had a record snowfall. I had a horrible time getting out of the driveway to go to school. Neighbors came out to help. I got to school, but then they sent the kids home after a couple of hours. Crazy time. Snow does present challenges.
