Still, looking on the bright side it means that these guys can still enjoy their daily bread al fresco. I'd hate to be a cow who had to spend all winter in a barn with a hundred other messy cows ...
And how do you feel about giving winter storms names? I'm slightly star-struck by Abigail, who's supposed to batter us with rain and bring some (temporary) cold weather later today. She sounds like a bit of a celeb, what with her special mentions on the news and everything. My guess is that if we're to be on first name terms with our winter storms we'll take more notice of them. Had Abigail just been anonymous I don't think I'd be mentioning the forecast at all ... .
All the best for now,
