Carnival of Homesteading

Morning Snow

Morning Snow

A major snowfall has swept over the east coast.  It’s caused travel problems and power outages from the deep South to Northern New England.  It is not too bad here on our small homestead.  We only got about 4 inches of snow.  Just enough to be pretty without having to worry about it lasting too terribly long.  It’s seems appropriate to call this the   the Snowfall  Edition of Carnival of Homesteading.
