Yesterday was blizzard # 2 for our area. It's only Jan 13th, so that isn't a great sign. The garden is completely buried. It's so deep that you can hardly see the difference between the raised beds and the ground. Behind the garden, our bushes are in bad shape under all the snow. They bounced back from the last storm, but I'm not sure how much more they can take.
The kids are loving it. They've been making tunnels in snow banks today. I'm sure the sledding will resume shortly.
They're very proud of their work. My Noah is the very silly one at the top.
The chickens are doing well, considering how little the like the snow. They're currently under my front window. It isn't ideal, but was very necessary. My neighbors that we were sharing the chickens with are moving. They couldn't have the chickens there while selling the house, so here they are. The tractor was moved between snow storms, so the girls couldn't be in a better place. I would have had to lift the tractor over a snow bank. It's working out well, they hardly got any snow in the run and are quite close to the electrical outlet.
Toby is in heaven. He loves this weather and has been playing in the snow quite a bit. Here he's waiting for me to stop taking pictures and kick the ball for him. How could I possibly resist that face?
It really is gorgeous out there today. I'm not a big fan of snow, but it keeps the kids happy and active and the photos are great.
