One extreme to another


Sunday night was the hottest August night on record – Monday night it snowed…. We had another day of winds above 85kmph but we also had about 10mm of rain - which was nice, the temperature got down to about 2-3 degrees which was warmer then we expected.

The Cook put new straw out for the pigs yesterday, but for some reason the Boars where all out sleeping in the rain. I’ll never figure these guys out, but as long as they are happy I don’t care how they decide to sleep - but you’d think they would take dry straw over cold wet mud.

There was a blanket of snow across the ranges this morning; it was getting really thick up towards Cooma. There was more snow falling after the sun came up so it’ll be interesting to see what it looks like when the cloud clears. The Cook is off skying with the boys today whilst I hold down the fort – I had a quick look at the snow cams a little while ago and it looked pretty cold up there. I hope she survives.

Sounds like the kind of thing we've been having here in Northland New Zeand. Sorry I haven't been over life got in the way amongst other things. Looks like you have been very busy with stuff. That horse looked terrible. Over here they be down on the owners like a ton of bricks for that poor bdoy score condition. Hope everything otherwise is going well for you guys on the farm there.

All the best
