    Ok.. so the blizzard finally ended and we ventured out to get some pictures.. by "we" I mean my wife[​IMG]

    The cows were pretty cold but they huddled right up next to the barn and got through it ok..

    As you can see, the snow was in these large piles all over the yard. Anywhere from 12" to more than 4' in other areas.

    Well.. the cows are not mine. I rent out my pasture for grazing but the barn is where I store most of the smokers that I don't regularly use. I also have lots of wood, mowers, power equipment and other things in the barn that I don't want poop all over so I keep it all gated up. The barn is not part of the rental agreement.

    Great question though[​IMG]

    They aren't your cows,
    But--But--But What if one of those cows just happened to slip & fall into one or two of your smokers, would you allow him to freeze to death, or would you warm him up a little?

    Getting it here today too.  Supposed to go until tomorrow morning.  Looks like a good night for BBQ pork pizza from the freezer stash. 

    Stay safe out there everyone.

    Well of course I'd have to give him a little fire to sleep by.. say somewhere around 225 degrees or so.. maybe a little smoke for good measure..[​IMG]

    Those poor cows!  I felt so sorry for them today.  I kept thinking that maybe the guy who rents the pasture might show up and take them off to HIS barn that he (presumably) has somewhere, but he didn't.  I guess they'll be okay.  Just FYI, there are actually 5 cows, and only 4 of them were outside.  The 5th is smaller and managed to squeeze into the little shed next to the barn.  LOL!!!!  I guess he can stay there....actually, I hope he can figure out how to get back OUT of the little shed.

    I knew I should have made a smokehouse out of that shed!!

    Strange, when I saw the cows all I thought of was brisket. Must be my OSD acting up   [​IMG]

    We're in the middle of the blizzard now, heavy snow with 30 - 40 mph winds                    [​IMG]

    Sorry guys, born and raised in northern Wisconsin, now live in the middle of the state.I am used to 24 to 36 inches overnight, but doesn't happen now that I am out of the Snowbelt, now all we get is that pesky 4 inches at a time that isn't worth taking the snow blower out but if I don't the wife complains.

Sittin here at work. Only 5 out of @20 people made it in. Pretty slow round here. Cant wait till I have to go outside.[​IMG]

    First of all they are either heifers or steers; second cattle do better outside with a wind break than in a barn. Why feel sorry for them, when you going to eat them shortly?

    They're heifers (not supposed to say cows?).  [​IMG]    I'm happy to hear that they do better outside.  Now I won't feel so bad for them.  Eat them?  My kids have named them!  lol

    One of the smaller *heifers* managed to squeeze into the little shed next to our barn.   I hope she can find her way out again, because I'm definitely not going in after her!  [​IMG]

    Well if she can't get out, maybe I'll just go ahead and build that smokehouse I was mentioning earlier. I'll have my first test subject built in[​IMG]
