Spring has yet to spring...

Here in the Black Hills January and February are known for being cold.  March and April are known to bring big snows.  We had a blizzard on Wednesday.  It is hard to tell, but we probably got about 18 inches of snow.  The wind blew like crazy, so we had some lovely drifts.

 A long time ago we invested in a tractor with a snowblower.  It didn't take long to make a trail to the main road.  The best part is we are supposed to have temperatures in the 40's and 50's next week.  Yeah.
I made some chocolate babka loaves this weekend.  They turned out perfectly.  As you can see a little mouse nibbled on the corner of one loaf.  I love Pinterest.  Without it I would have never known the joys of babka.  Chocolate and bread.  How could you ever go wrong with that?

I hope you all survived the snow and flooding.  My mom sent photos of a Robin.  My husband and I saw about fifteen disgruntled geese standing on a frozen pond.  Spring is around the corner.  


  1. That's a lot of snow! We have been thawing the past few days - it's sooo nice to see color.
    Happy spring.

  2. Wow so much snow!!! I love how cozy your house and barn looks all snuggled in that snow and all of the warm lights.
    It is cold I know it and I know you are so ready for it to be over and have spring finally show up.
    Its lovely. I hope this was your last blizzard.

  3. they showed a guy in Kyle SD digging out his cattle hrad, a huge bull totally under the white stuff.Floods to the west of me, lots of melt

  4. Wow you really do get a lot of snow don't you - we moan if we get snow for a few days.

  5. Hmmm...I think I need to go visit Pinterest!! That's a lot of snow! I wondered how you can get out and about in the middle of winter. Do the main roads get opened pretty promptly? We're just beginning to see a hint of spring, and I can't wait!

  6. I would bet you are not done with winter there. I guess you haven't had the flooding of other western states.

  7. The Canada geese keep on flying over us, but never land. Too cold, snowy, and icy I guess.
