On Thursday and Friday last week the snow just kept coming, it was amazing, the snowflakes were ranging from very small and lumpy to huge fluffy monsters, the wind was pretty mean as well so quite a lot of drifts were created. Went out and the first morning I was pushing snow like a bulldozer as the dog I walk was not willing to go in front of me I had snow up to my knees. The next morning I took the snowshoes it was much easier. Today was a much calmer day little bit of snow, cloud, sunshine and we took the opportunity to go above the house a do a bit of snowboarding.
The first bit of snowboarding on the 3d of December 2016, it was amazing. I don’t remember this much snow this early in the year for a long time. Going back to the snowboarding it was awesome. Really enjoyed it and the funny things was that when we started walking up the hill it felt like just yesterday when we did if before, how time flies.
Bees, I am down to 1 hive, about a month ago we had +14 degrees so I took the roof of, as I could not hear any sound from the hive, took the roof of and could not see any bees between the frames, once I started to take it apart ie pull out the frames there was uncapped syrup, a few bees with their faces in, some on the floor dead and that is it. I also decided to leave that hive there I just switched it with the one with the bees as now the empty hive is on the North. I also closed the entrance and open the eye hole in the middle of the super as like now the snow is covering the entrance but not the eye hole so I don’t have to go near it and keep the snow of it. although they have a mesh floor so there is air coming from there.
Sheep are in, the rams did really well we had a 30kg and a 20kg carcass. Girls are in the shed and seems to have settled in rather well, still due to be sheared but there is not much hurry with that.
