Snow Day at Apothecary Inn!
I have to say that I was more than a little shocked by the amount of snowfall we received yesterday. There was about a foot of snow at our house (I know because I measured the level of the snow with my muck boots during morning chores! *grin*), and the road conditions were less than ideal. It took us an extra two hours to get to work this morning. The animals' reactions to the snow ranged from sheer terror (Frieda, Zilla, Cheerio, Breeze, and the chickens) to open excitement (Gruff and Bartholomew). The snow was so high that the goats had to practically burrow out of their shelters in order to reach their outdoor hay feeders. Ryan and I had a blast playing in the freshly fallen snow! We are used to such snow in Utah, but I NEVER expected this from Oregon!!!

The snow is coming up about mid-calf in this picture. Gruff and Bartholomew (our two pet wethers behind me) are practically being buried by the deep snow!
