I was really enjoying this view from the road as the dogs and I traveled back and forth from our house to the farm to hunt the dastardly rats.
This is the view we were greeted with yesterday, what a revolting development!!
Earlier in the week, our weatherman, Ben, gave his best forecast for the upcoming snow event, some models called for us to get 7 - 8 inches and he thought that was off the mark, more like 2 - 3. They were both wrong, we got 13 inches!!! YIKES!!
It is a heavy, wet snow....
....that stuck to everything....
....the chicken weather vane frozen in time.
The good thing about a late spring snowstorm is that it won't last long. After a morning cleaning yards and plowing paths, the chickens are once again out, tip toeing around the remaining snow. Ben says it will take about 5 - 7 days for this to melt.
We hope it melts slowly so we don't see this again.
But we aren't holding our breath.
