Click on this... biggify it, and you will see the snowflakes coming down. After a day in the 70's and two in the 80's, it is not sticking... so far. The weatherman has just told us at six PM that we will have some sticking during the night, until 1 PM tomorrow.
It's 36 degrees right now, at 6:36 PM.
This little girl is obviously glad to be back in under the light. She was taking a dust bath in her food dish when I went out to collect eggs. I turned the light out early tonight... and left everyone in to warm up and make it through the wet night.
Standing water in the very green pasture.
Taken from the old henyard.
I emptied and refilled the duck pond early this morning, at about 38 degrees. As you see, it did not stop Aflac and Cinnamon for one second.
The Carhartt is back out and on Keith. Just when we think it's time to put away the winter clothing.
(Doesn't everyone have an old computer desk and an old TV on their decks? We have been trying to make a run to the transfer station (dump) for a month... and something always comes up to prevent us. We planned again for this week, while Keith was off work. The best laid plans.....)
The marsh we love that is two miles away is filling back up. It was for sale... but now, the sign is gone. I don't think it sold, I think it went off the market. There is an arable field to it's left, but both of these flood regularly in times of high water. We absolutely would love to own this piece of property. It is a haven for the wildings.
This just about sums up how the henyards on the old side looked today. Ugh. I almost went down in the slick mud.
I am glad we are getting more moisture, because our ponds and lakes around here, and the land itself, still need it after the last two year's lack of rain, but it does get a little daunting to see snow in May.
That's it for a very wet day at Calamity Acres!
