The (Not) So Big Snow

It snowed last night and into early this morning, but we didn’t get as much as expected. I couldn’t get to work so I got to stay home with the boys. We went out this morning in the snow to check on the chickens and to let the boys play.

Dogs run

The snow was deep enough it was fun, but not so deep they couldn’t run and play.

I let them run all over the property and I got some exercise too following them around…

They really loved checking out the stream that runs along one side of our place…

Chase Stream 2

Chase just had to figure out a way across…

And he eventually did get across and had some fun with his brother.

Did you and your pups have any fun in the snow today?

Snow, Dogs, Birds, and Chickens

Didn’t get as much snow today as they originally predicted, but it snowed most of the day lightly. When I got home from work we took the boys outside to play and help us get the chickens ready for the snow that started around 6 tonight.

Dogs

The chicken water tank was frozen over. Luckily the one inside the coop is holding up well and staying un-frozen.

And I found another soft egg so I put it outside in a dish to see what the snow would do to it.

The boys enjoyed running and playing for a while.

I took the opportunity to take some pictures around the yard.

Bird feeder

The snow was sitting so pretty on the pine trees.

The birds had almost finished their blocks so we had to fill the feeders up and get them set for the snow as well before we came back in for dinner.

Do you like out new block feeder? I couldn’t pass up a chicken one 😉

It starts…

The weather man says the forecast is a mix of snow and ice, with a little rain mixed in. So that means where we live it will be all snow and ice. It started about 2 hours before they said as well.

This wintery mix is set to continue until Monday. Hopefully it won’t be too bad tomorrow morning as I have to go work at my private practice. The chickens got out today as some of the last snow we had melted. The dogs enjoyed a run and we are ready for the bad weather inside and out. Hope you have a blessed weekend 🙂

Snow Time

The forecast says we are to have snow from now until Monday. We had a couple inches today…

1st snow

But they say more is coming from Friday to Monday. The chickens refuse to go out in the snow so even though their door was open… not a chicken was seen.

Coop

Still the boys had fun out in the snow. Chase enjoyed checking out the chicken fence parameter and leaving his footprints in the snow 🙂

Any of you get any snow today too?
