We live right next to Smoky Mountain National Park. I’ve been wanting to write a blog for the last several days about our insane weather and have been compiling photographs but I may likely do a VLOG on our youtube channel as well.
Since the end of January, we’ve gone from 70 degree days where we were out milling logs in what felt like late spring weather – to severe extreme flooding, to high winds, to three inches of snow, to five earthquakes in one five hour period, back to flooding then now to 21 degree temperatures as I write this blog.
That is incredible!
On a brighter note, I am now separating my does and kids at night so that I can milk out the does in the morning and am finally in milk production now. I always value this period when the babies are strong and doing well and I can begin to harvest milk for the family kitchen.
Below are a few pictures of our week.
We continue to feel thankful for our lives and the farm we are so blessed to operate. The Lord is good and we are truly thankful. In times where the weather is as it is an Corona Virus rages around the world, we exist in our little world thankful that we can raise our own food and live simply off the grid and away from dense populations where the virus rages on.
