Some of you may have wondered about the shadecloth over the henspa yard with the heavy snow last week.
Yes, that's the shadecloth on Friday, over the middle span of the henyard. Notice the span on the right is also very full. I stopped Keith as he was planning to put crosswise supports up in the middle... because we had to move birds fast in November. As you can see, the supports were needed.
Oh, stupid me.
Fast forward to yesterday afternoon:
Quite a bit of snow came out of it... this is not a great picture. We left it unhooked and down for the next storm, but only two small holes were torn in it where it rested on the pole tops. In the spring, we'll take it partially down again, and Keith will finish building the framework the way he wanted it.
Mea culpa, Honey.
We had a glorious morning this morning..., and that was all we saw of the sun all day.
And it melted so much yesterday and today (under leaden skies) that I could see the garden beds again, and the tops of our greenhouse panels.
In late afternoon, we had a dusting of snow and it blew very hard, but right now, at 9:21, there is just a little precip falling, and if our computer is right, it's 37 degrees out, actually warmer than it has been all day.
This girl was here early this morning and yes, found the food I had left for her. She had not come up for the last four nights. No coyotes came behind her.
I left another bowl of food tonight, because if it really DOES get as terrible as they have predicted, the wildings won't be able to get up the pasture again.
I've ordered Tylan for our big tom turkey, Jackson, who is still sneezing. Now two roosters from the henspa have begun sneezing. I think it is the stress of the weather and being locked up off and on the last few days... the Tylan was shipped today, but may be held up for a day or so with the weather. I'm eager to get it started.
That's it for today from Calamity Acres! .
