They said it was to be nicer this weekend. Yet there is snow falling on my ground, and my horse is struggling in his battle against this bacterial infection. Cold, damp weather does not help one with lung issues, and I'm sorely tempted to walk away from Washington at this moment. I have grown to hate our winters here. Harney County and 300 days of sun are looking mighty fine about now, even if it is 20 degrees colder there this morning.
