The barnyard is covered with a thin layer of icing, although it is not the sweet or tasty kind. It is not as thick as the coating we got at work, for which we are thankful. If you have no where to go you can enjoy the crystal beauty it lends to the world while it remains. If it is a necessity to be on the go make sure you pack some yak traks and a sturdy ice scraper.
This crystal layer is not conducive to safe ladder traversing and utmost caution and attention is to be exercised while doing so.
The calves do not care about the weather as long as they have sufficient roughage, grain, and water. They just mosey along as they always do. Not a care in the world.
The goats detest this assault of the weather on their domain and show their protest by unified shivering in the warmest corner of the barn.Whispering one to another about how utterly dreadful it is.
Even the mud has a frosty layer encrusting it. Did you know that mud could be iced? I didn't! It is amazing how some thing so treacherous can make even disgusting mud both intriguing and beautiful. Such is the state of my empire. Have a lovely and Safe evening and stay warm.
