It Really Snowed!

Today, Jan 17, 2013
about three inches
out the kitchen window

out the back door

This is why people strip the stores of edibles when the prediction does not include snow that sticks. See yesterday's post .
The hens' boxes they live in fell over. Poor things. I need to venture out and feed them again. They ate nothing yesterday. Well, they ate nothing I gave them. However, they spent a few hours outside the pen and gobbled lots of grass and other green stuff.
When I went out for the mail, I was covered in snow. As soon as I came in, it was water and my head was drenched. The snow melted faster than usual from my clothing. Since it is frigid in the house, I am freezing.
I experienced a new phenomenon--snow thunder or thunder snow. That shocked me for a second.
Not only did I have to walk through three or four inches of snow, the snow was sticking to the road surfaces. The prediction was nothing sticking to the warm pavement.
Now, I have to get something warm in me. Maybe I will make oats for me and the hens.
Your turn
Do you have snow this morning? How do your hens like snow?


  1. The snow makes the trees so beautiful. Lovely photos.

    1. Sue,
      Thank you. I have a film picture with several cardinals sitting on snowy branches that is beyond beautiful.

  2. Ahhh. I used to post pictures of the frigid ice and snow on the branches of my trees. I remember that. I miss that, and, at the same time, I hope I'm never closed in like that again. I've never had hens, but I once had a rooster who was in love with me. seriously.

    1. lotta joy,
      I am sure you don't get much snow in FL. I think if we had this more than once every two or three years, I would hate being closed in, too. You need to write a blog post about your hen that was in love with you.

  3. Lovely snow! I really enjoy it as long as I don't have to drive anywhere, lol.

    1. TLC,
      I am like a little kid when it snow, but it seems the older I get, the less I like having it around after the initial beauty. I did not get out the whole day and down into the afternoon the next day.
