  So pleased to hear that the locals are getting out and about with their
livestock.

  Very little has progressed here as the temperatures create large and
dangerous patches of ice.  
How tall are the mini mules?  They sound like a lot of fun.
  We are hard at work with the tapping of maple trees and hope the day
will come when the horses as a team get to pull the sap wagon.  Ah, live
in the bush.
There will be a good run this weekend as weather conditions are to be
perfect.

Icy here as well.  My round bales are frozen down so that the bottoms
tear off when I move them.

Excellent weather here for the run as well.  Big improvement over last
year when there was essentially none.  Our neighbor does the tapping,
though.  We just get the tax break.

I hear the border guards are letting any old storm cross into the US
these days.

I'm guessing 24"-30" at the shoulder.  Some of the priority pictures
feature those guys, but I have been dilatory in the preparations.
