Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Is It Winter or Not?

Friday, January 13, 2012

It's been a strange winter, that's for sure.  We've been primarily in the 40's and 50's the entire time and, with less than an inch of snow on December 6, we're way below where we should be for precipitation.  Of course, the silver lining is that the weather has been beautiful.  I've certainly been enjoying trekking out in a light jacket or even a t-shirt to feed the chickens.

But Old Man Winter let us know he's still lurking last night.  J., my friend Paula, her daughter Amanda, and I went to see "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and, while it was cool and blustery when we went in, imagine our surprise when we stepped out of the theater to snow flying!  The ground was covered and actually a little bit icy.  We saw several wrecks on the way home, but the trusty Jeep got us home safe and sound.

Is it winter?  Yep.  But it's having trouble finding its footing this year.  It's supposed to be back up to 57 degrees this weekend.  *sigh*  If you live in Missouri, it's a given that you've heard "It's Missouri.  If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes."  Ain't that the truth...

Off to work now...
