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.
Do you have snow this morning? How do your hens like snow?
