Weather Report

Our weather meter told us we were getting Freezing Rain.
What would you say?
The last two days have been above freezing temperatures
with lots of rain, only the first day was freezing rain.

Here are the bigger pictures of our "Mystery Photo". Our front deck is covered by about 8'x16' of this lattice. For one day this was all decorated with a
"lacy fringe". Most of the icicles where about 2" long.

Yes, you're seeing this right! He is on the highway wearing skates!!! The highway past our farm is not very used, especially when there is a 1/4 inch of ice on everything.

The spruce and pine trees where very weighed down, here you can see why.

The other trees faired a lot better, but also had a layer of ice.

One of the guys said our clothes line looked like an "upside-down bar graph".

Thanks to those that tried guessing our "mystery photo". You were all very close.

The Master artist at work once again. How perfectly beautiful! It almost looks un-real.

Amen, sister! We've been marveling at God's handiwork as well ... and thankful that we didn't need to risk the roads while praying for those who did/do need to drive somewhere.

To God be ALL glory!

I've noticed the label "Klasse Woods Natural Farm" now on some of your photos - is that what you've named your new farm? I enjoy the creative artistry God has blessed your family members with, whether it's with food, crafts or photography or anything else, like your blogs!

Hi Bonnie,

You guessed it - yes, we've now decided to name our farm "Klasse Woods Natural Farm" (after MUCH deliberation & now we're working on a brochure & website). "Klasse" is part of our name, of course, perhaps confusing to those who know us, but it is pronounced "classy". "Woods" because the boys & Ken plan to do sustainable forestry & value added woods (crafting, flooring etc.) AND we live next to 120 sq. miles of forest called "Spruce Woods".
"Natural Farm" speaks of more of the products we hope to produce: eggs, chicken, garden produce, cherries ... and some maybes like maple syrup, mushrooms - all organic as that is a growing market trend, but without certification because we want to stay small.
Thanks for the compliment on creativity - you would know as you & Curtis have similar talents.
