Where’s Our Hashtag??

☆ February 20, 2018


I’m going to venture that this February in Wyoming has been way more brutal
than the dreaded Bomb Cyclone the east coast got earlier this winter…..


Whiteout blizzards every other day
Below-zero degrees every night
(20º-below-zero last night)
I will be amazed if my bees are surviving.
This kind of winter is so beautiful and so stressful.


It seems like it will never stop being Winter……. but there was something about the angle of the sun rays this morning, as they crept over the mountain at dawn, that just FELT like Spring.

    I remarked on all the snow you still had in one of your recent pictures. I can remember winters like that and they are not fun. Beautiful picture of your frost covered bovine!

    Love the pics & loved Charlie looking out the window in today’s Daily Coyote pic! I long for the snow and cold (I know – strange right?!) I left Buffalo, NY 19 years ago this month for sunny Florida vowing I never wanted to live in snow again. Now I’m in North Texas where we get some from time to time and I relish it. Even plan on retiring to Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho or Iowa simply for the snow and cold – who knows maybe even the Dakotas! Enjoy it :)

    Beautiful pictures. Your description of a brutal winter seems a description of my life in the last three months, but your description of the angle of the suns rays this morning speaking of hope for spring give me comfort. May your Tuesday be full of the warmth of the love of your farmily.

    Yellowstone park -29 here in Pocatello 10′ 1ft.new snow. Your description of the morning sun’s rays and Charlie’s profile in the window is inspiring. It will be a beautiful day.

    Great pics Shreve. We were just commenting yesterday down here in southern CO how the sun’s angle is starting to change, as well as the “light”. It’s getting brighter. Spring will be here before we know it!
    (Not that we have had much of a winter down here) :(

    The pictures are beautiful and in such sharp details. When I saw the pictures I couldn’t help but wonder how Daisy and baby are doing in such extreme temperatures.

    I live in Boston and can confirm you’ve had it much worse. And I think you’ve started the hashtag.

    OMG! I thought I was looking at snow-covered bison! For a moment I thought you had gone to Yellowstone. Here’s wishing you the speedy arrival of a beautiful spring.

    I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but growing up in Lander a LONG time ago the joke was always, “If summer comes on a weekend this year, let’s have a picnic.” Lovely pictures!

    My husband always thinks I’m crazy when I say that the “light starts to FEEL different in early spring.” Glad I’m not alone!
