Melting


With +4.7 c temperatures, the big melt begins here at Gullringstorp.


What Happens When the Temperature Drops After A Beyond Chilly Day


We had a beyond chilly day yesterday at Gullringstorp. We all kept warm and cozy, including the goats. My pasta sauce was wonderful and I just love my new crock pot.

During the night our temperature dropped even more to a crispy -19 c. The morning view from every angle here at Gullringstorp was just spectacular.

I just love looking at all the ice crystals on the trees and bushes and hedges.

How is winter looking in your neck of the woods?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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

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 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…
