First snow of the season

First snow of the season today.  We've gotten about 2 inches so far and could receive a third overnight.

This means I have to start feeding the sheep and goats, since there's no longer any visible grass for them.  I need to buy some more alfalfa cubes, since we're low.  We've got plenty of pellets, but they tend to eat those too quickly; the cubes take some time to eat.  Fortunately the new goats have finally figured out that the barn makes better shelter than the deck.  I still locked them in for the night, anyway.  They don't need to be wandering around in the snow tonight.

I'm a bit worried about my SO.  He doesn't get off work until Midnight, and then he's got to drive home in this.
