Frost covered everything this morning. It’s supposed to burn off by later today but right now the farm is covered in diamonds.
Our weather has stabilized for a time~ cold nights in the lower teens, highs in the high twenties. No snow for the next couple of days but cloudy. Always cloudy.
This small break in the precipitation allows us to catch up with a couple of chores that are harder to accomplish in the wind and driving snow.
More hay for our sweet pigs for nesting material.
Moving soiled wood chips from the garage brooder to the chicken coop.
Shoveling snow from the front porch.
Squeegee-ing (is that a word?) out the garage. (A rather large puddle of melted snow gathers under the cars this time of year. Sometimes that puddle gets icy and surprises unsuspecting crutch-walking mommas as they limp out to take a look at the chick babies or climb into a vehicle.)
We’re expecting more snow next week so we are enjoying the weather we have.
Never a dull moment.
Today’ count: 3 eggs. None frozen! YAY!
What’s for supper: Sauteed sweet potato, bacon and onions with poached eggs nestled in the midst~ one of Rachael’s favorites
Weather: Today areas of freezing fog before 11am. Partly sunny, with a high near 28. Light and variable wind. Tonight mostly cloudy, with a low around 16. Southwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the evening.
