It was deep! Seven and a half inches of pure powder!
We even had icicles on the back of the Silkies hutch!
Oh, and the snow-covered thing in the foreground is my new potting bench that Bob and I built at the end of summer. It even has a dry sink on the right side. I am looking forward to better weather in spring so I can put it to good use!
OK, I should be all excited about a snow day and Bob being home and all, but the fact is, it’s nice to look at but you don’t want to be in it for working. Which is precisely where I found myself at 6:45 this morning! Well, at least I wasn’t the only one who was less than impressed with it all…
Claus’s solution to getting though the snow? Jump!
Bertha confers with Little Red Hen, “What do you think? Shall we dive in?”
Little Red Hen, “Oh sure thing Bertha, you go first!”
Meanwhile, I shoveled a small path from the gate to the barn for the geese. Did they use it? NO. They waddled through the chest deep snow anyway!
Well OK, it did make it easier for me to get through and was a bit less cold on my toes.
While I worked, a little squirrel made a bee line for the maple tree and disappeared into the top! Can’t say as I blamed him!
Maybe I shouldn’t complain, after all, it could always be worse!
