We’ve been anticipating the cold snap for about a week. It was hard to think seriously about the cold because temperatures have been in the 70s the last few days. Today, it’s 34 degrees and the first snow is beginning to fall.
Regardless of the weather conditions work must go on. Preg checking is scheduled for tomorrow. So, the guys are saddling up to work cattle in preparation.
This is nothing, though. It’s a little cold snap, just the beginning of a long, cold winter. The heavy winter wear has been unearthed. We’ve thrown out the old gloves, caps and coveralls and made a place for this year’s stash.
I better get to town to get my cowboy the new coveralls we’ve been discussing. I don’t want him to freeze his assets off again tomorrow.
