We have been blessed this year in that we did not need to start feeding hay until this week. Last year, we started feeding in late September/early October because of the severe drought that started late in the summer. I was never concerned about how much rain we had, until I had livestock and needed to start buying hay! This year, I was watching the rainfall.
Talking about precipitation, we usually don't get snow here in central Alabama. Earlier this month we did have a beautiful frost accompanied by clear skies. These photos were snapped early that morning on my way to work.
