Working in the Rain

I must admit - I kind of enjoy working outside in stormy weather.  I'm fortunate to have pretty decent foul weather gear (including lots of woolen clothing and good rubber boots), so it's generally not too uncomfortable.
I find being outdoors in rain or snow to be calming - things are quieter and slower.

Today, I built a new 3/4 acre paddock for our sheep and goats at Sierra College (in the rain).  I also moved our 130 pregnant ewes across the road and into a new pasture during a driving sleet storm in Auburn.  Maybe it's genetic - my northern European and Scottish ancestors probably dealt with worse weather.  What a great day!
