We've flirted with snow the last few days. I drove home from White Rock on Sunday evening in a blizzard, which petered out to half strength after a few miles, and by the time I was half way home it had fizzled out completely, and there was nothing here.
There was a dusting of snow on the ground both Monday and Tuesday morning, but this morning there was a few inches, which has just about doubled itself in the last three or four hours. The chickens were not impressed, and thankfully we cleaned out both the coops and the sheep barn yesterday, as they will be getting a lot of use if this keeps up. Some of the bolder hens made the 50' dash to the sheep barn this morning, but they'll probably lay their eggs in there, because the snow is now deeper and they won't want to make their way back.
The dogs enjoy it of course, although it's quite a workout for Calli, as the snow impedes her back legs, and she has to drag them through it.
Lovely to look at, but the novelty will wear off fast. We are right around the freezing mark, so the snow is great for snowmen and snowballs, but not so great for driving in.
For once Luna's undercarriage won't be covered in mud, yay!
The hen from the south chicken coop that usually flies over the fence and heads to the right down that row of evergreens, and lays an egg in the open on some dirt, wouldn't have been too pleased this morning. Hopefully she will be forced to lay her egg on some dry hay in a cosy nest box. Poor thing!:)
And speaking of malls, I haven't even ventured there yet this shopping season. Probably haven't been there since last year. Maybe tomorrow:)
