A little white, out

The weatherman was threatening a "white-out" on the five o'clock local news last night.

Now I've been in a real white-out, many, many times, in places where they actually occur, such as the Cairngorm Plateau, or on the top of the Ben (Nevis).

So let me tell, you, this photo from our front door may show a lot of snow, but as long as I can still see the mailbox twenty feet away, it is not an official white-out.

It's a kind of a gray-out maybe.

Let's just call it a decent snowstorm and be done.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
