Sorry about the fuzziness of some of the pictures in this post - guess I was in a hurry!
As most of you know, Thanksgiving was followed up by a pretty major snowstorm in our area. We estimate anywhere from 18 to 24 inches at our farm. The wind really piled the snow up in places so it is pretty hard to be accurate on that.
The snow got started early on Saturday.
By late morning today it was done and the clean-up began. Kevin spent the entire day plowing, pushing, and piling snow. Thank goodness for Bob - he earned his keep today!
I got reacquainted with the shovel. I worked on the front deck and then shoveled a path the the back door of the Winter Coop. Later this afternoon I spread some straw out there to entice the poultry out.
Good news from the coop - the hens are picking up their egg production - 15 eggs today - we haven't had that many for a long, long time.
In the big shed, quite a bit of snow was blown in the little goat door. It is unusual for so much to come in on the north side - there is also a solid fence just a few feet away. The wind was going every direction it seemed. Fortunately we have expanded the goat area and Vinca, Echo, and Hickory have plenty of snow free space.
Sunset was brief but beautiful this evening.
