This morning, there was a lot more snow just over the Sourlands in Amwell than in Princeton. The TH Daughter and I went out to Toy Box Farm to give the horses some exercise, and I snapped a few pictures for those of you who would rather see pictures of snow than experience it.
A small fraction of the geese...

Jack Frost, who is fuzzy.
I was recently astounded at how cheap horses have become. Maybe 15 years ago we sold a fat horse with three bad legs for slaughter and she brought $1200. The meat was exported to France and Belgium. Then Congress outlawed the slaughter of horses. A neighbor recently took 33 horses to a horse sale in North Platte. One horse brought $500. The check for the other 32 horses combined was $2300, and they weren't thin and lame. Perhaps it was just a bad day to sell horses?
Yep, that's snow in the right place: in the rear view mirror. Gateway Pundit reported recently that the University of Texas canceled a talk on Global Warming due to snow: while there were SOME snow flakes, there was no accumulation whatsoever, said the weather reports. By contrast, the only time my alma mater in the NE canceled classes was in the blizzard of '78, when ~ 24 inches of snow fell in 24 hours.
