Bob only likes snow if he is skiing, so chores in this weather are truly a chore. The ewes don't seem to mind the cold weather. They have a warm barn bedded down with hay.
Here are a few fun photos from the past week.

I met Donald Trump at a land meeting in Des Moines. He was hinting about running for office while promoting The Apprentice and telling Mitt Romney: You're Fired! Peoples Company, the meeting sponsor, gave Trump an acre of Iowa farmland. What should he plant?
