Bleak and lonely.
18 degrees out this morning.
What's THAT stuff? Uh huh... I'm not going out there!
While the birds in the old henhouse felt the same way! All of them stayed in.
One little intrepid helper came with me to do chores. Her red sister was out running in the yard, but, as I type this, they are both inside here where it's warm. I was out at 11 to do second waters, and found the duck's water almost frozen again (on top). I'll check them again at 3.
The goats were not out of their pen yesterday, and I know they are full of energy... but the deck is so slick that I am afraid we would have a mishap of some kind if I were to let them loose, so for now, they'll stay in their pen. Besides, it's only gotten up to 20. Can you believe that two days ago it was 60 degrees?
There have been hundreds of wild birds at the feeder this morning, and I hope to have some pictures for you either later today, or tomorrow morning. The Northern Flicker was there, and four crows, and some other birds... so maybe I can get some on camera. The game camera is set up on the deck, by the water bowl.
Stay warm, everyone!
