A Storm’s a Brewin’
Here in Colorado, we are supposed to get a pretty decent winter storm today through tomorrow early morning. In typical Colorado weather person fashion, we are expecting between 0-412 inches. I don’t mind snow, but I do wish it could snow at like 40* instead of the 20s with ridiculous wind we are expecting. I also hate the mud that ensues once we warm up after a good snow.
The horses are all blanketed and ready, and they got their mash (regular ration of grain with some alfalfa pellets added and a LOT of water, plus table salt to help promote them being thirsty), so really they are pretty happy (even if some of them like to share their mash with the world).
Now to just amp myself to be excited (HAAA) to feed this evening in a blizzard. If you need me, I will be in my neon reflective overalls so that if I fall down and yell/call for help, my boyfriend can find me 🤣. And yes, I am being serious 🤣 (see my about me for the why).
Some of my go-to winter warming products that can be easily found on Amazon are:
YakTrax Ice Cleats* (see photo as an example of how they grip in the snow),
HotSnapz Reusable Hand Warmers*,
ORORO Women’s Lightweight Heated Vest*,
Refrigiwear HiVis Insulated Overalls Good to -20**.
