These two photos were taken a year ago today, January 1, 2011 not too far from our place.
The two photos below were taken at our ranch today, January 2, 2012.We have snow in a few shady places from snow we received a week or so ago. Last winter we had snow on the ground from mid November until the first week of May. Even though we could use some moisture right now, life is much easier for everyone and spirits are high for the most part. Last winter was a struggle for people and animals.
