My life in the country with my goats.com site

Global Warming at Gullringstorp


Remember just a few weeks ago, I posted photos of SNOW? I mean tons of snow.. Well we had a beautiful White Christmas. There was so much snow that my husband had to use the tractor to move it off our 2 roads and move it into the goat’s enclosure.  Needless to say, with all the wide gates open and all those snow mountains, the goats were unable to enjoy the enclosure.

New Year’s Eve we celebrated without snow! After dropping to minus temperatures,  we shot up to plus temperatures. In one day, we lost ALL our snow! It looked like a waste land with little sad piles of snow scattered around Gullringstorp.

After sadly looking at our land and seeing the grass and gravel, we woke up to this today after a night with minus temperatures. While walking back from the stable last evening, I really enjoyed the crystal clear sky with all its bright stars. I am never unthankful for the beautiful nature I live within. I knew by the clarity of the night that it would be a real COLD night and it was.

This is what we woke up to this morning:

Our green lawn in the fron went from snow packed to green again to frost

Beautiful Evergreens all frosty

Now we can see some of the damage the tractor did to our lawns. So strange to see our neighbor's fields brown with no snow.

The grass all over was crunchy with frost

The mounds of tractor  moved snow have melted butt just look at that frost. Too bad the goats couldn't go out yet again today.

Not so sure we should be having temperatures that yo-yo up and down within a day or a couple of hours. Just doesn’t seem right.

Feels like Global Warming to me…

What do you think?

        I have a well that is powered by an electric pump, and every winter I worry that the well/pump will freeze. I have not had that worry at all this winter, and the last few days have been in the seventy-degree-Farenheit range. No heat or air conditioning is being used, which is nice, but what is going on? THIS is JANUARY.

      • Hej from Sweden! This is just not right. Here at Gullringstorp, it has been snowing ALL day and cold -5 with a chilly nasty wind. The patterns have certainly shifted somewhat. Thanks for your comment and take care.

  2. Grüße von Österreich! Hope you’re all doing well and had a lovely holiday.
    I kind of like when the snow melts a bit and refreezes, coating the branches/grass/etc in what looks like nature’s jewelry, lol….but that might just be because I really like shiny jewelry (also known as ‘ice’, lol). Hope you guys & the goats didn’t suffer too much.
    Take care til we next speak, Tschüß!

    • Hej from Sweden !
      Apologies for getting back so late to this comment.
      I also love the “jewels of nature” but it was not the “jewels ” that we had when all our snow melted in one day. Take a look at a post “A Frosty March Morning at gullringstorp” There we have beautiful ice crystals and snow on the ground.
