nope, can't get to whistler, there was a slide by pemberton that took like 7 vehicles into the river, they're looking for the people AFAIKLooking at the maps it appears all your escape routes are cut off. Well, maybe you can get to Whistler?
cows were miserable, then it was 2" of wet snow..river coming down the driveway but otherwise things are fineThat's some pretty serious washouts there Nesi. How did your farm fare?
Oh yeah, we could easily spend a month here with no problem.. fresh milk would be the only thing lacking and I don't have any cows in milk right now... Calves are all sold, cows never leave the property, they just take the road to get around all the fields I don't want them in to get to the corralsWOW that is some serious flooding and road damage. Thank goodness that you had water but nothing devastating at the farm. Since I am sure that your family is pretty self sufficient, and hopefully plans for weather and such so has plenty of food and staples on hand, I hope this will be a royal pain in the a$$ and nothing more. Have you brought the cattle home from summer pastures yet? Have you sold your calves for this fall? I liked the videos you did of the cattle coming home down the road a couple years ago.... we used to move a group of ours about a mile up the road from one pasture to another and they would practically run past the truck leading them to get to the new place each spring....
Is there really that much difference between Virginia winters and where Nesi lives? I’d think the biggest problem would be the hotter summers where Nesi is, but Im not a fan of the heat.If it wasn't for the winters/cold.... I think I would be as happy as a pig in mud in the "outback of nowhere that you are in". Less people the better. I am pretty tired of all the people moving in here now.... told my son it was time to move to the other side of Highland county because it is much more remote.....
I would think there is, if this is correct.Is there really that much difference between Virginia winters and where Nesi lives? I’d think the biggest problem would be the hotter summers where Nesi is, but Im not a fan of the heat.
0C seems awful mild to me…. It’s Nesi’s summer heat that I couldn’t manage.I would think there is, if this is correct.

I was once stationed in Norfolk Virginia and it was relatively cold, but not THAT dang cold.
-25C is about the limit of my tolerance.. I'm quite happy at -10 to -15C.. things are nicely frozen, cows are happy, stuff still starts. Humid and cold is misery indeedAny place I’ve ever been in the winter time that was close to water was too cold for me. When I was a kid my parents took me to Disneyland over Christmas. A cold spell moved in and I about froze to death. You can’t escape that moist cold. I’m far more comfortable here at -20C on a sunny day with no wind. Far more comfortable.
