This morning we woke up to dark overcast skies dropping rain against the side of the house. We got up did our chores and then had to go to town. The wind was starting to pick up and the rain came down harder. We went to the bank and then to Tractor Supply. When we came out of there, the rain had stopped, but it was still pretty dreary looking. We went on into the grocery store to pick up a few things and then we came on home. Michael left to go over to a friend's house. He had to borrow their truck to pull our stock trailer since Joshua was using his truck for work today. We had to go and pick up our milk cow, Buttercup. They got the lights and brakes working on the trailer and he was hitched up and ready to go. He was not gone more than 10 minutes when the wind picked up even more and started spitting sleet on the house and ground. I let the dogs come in on the porch. Just a few minutes later I looked out and it was sleet mixed with snow and it looked like a blizzard. I checked the radar and they said we were just on the last edge of a green band of rain, and it was quickly moving away from us. No sign of snow on the radar. When I looked out again, it was snowing to beat the band. =) Now, as I sit here and look out the sun is shining brightly. We still have wind and we are getting some pretty strong gusts. If you watch long enough leaves go sailing by the window. It's just another day in Ohio. Who knows what this evening will bring!!!
