Hello snow



Yes, the snow that last week was forecast to arrive tomorrow, then this week was forecast not to come at all, has arrived today. So much for forecasts. In fact, according to the weather network, right now it is 8 degrees and raining outside. Our thermometer is reading 0 degrees and I'm pretty sure that white stuff falling from the sky is not rain. That's a micro climate for you.

And if I'm not happy about this, the chickens seem entertained. Most of our flock have never seen snow before, and they're not sure what to make of it. Some, like the pullet in the photo above, are happy to explore . . .


. . . while others seem just as happy to watch it all from their dry spot under the verandah.

Ouch! At 4:00 this morning, on the way to the airport, we knew it was cold, but really...snow is RUDE.

Oh it's so pretty! We haven't had a stitch of snow yet, but there's some forecast for tomorrow.

Hope it stops snowing in your neck of the woods, though. It's a bit too early to think about it...

I'm surprised those under the veranda weren't on it knocking at the door to be let in! :-)

Yeah, talk about microclimates indeed! We got a nice bit of snow that day, though sadly it is melting away quickly now. I hope it returns. I'd rather snow than rain (as long as it doesn't drop too far below freezing!).

I almost didn't see the little dears- thanks for pointing them out!
