Never ending snow…

More snow today… More predicted for Wednesday and Thursday… I think the Olympics have caused the excess snow this year to keep us all in a Winter Olympics mood. At least the bird are enjoying full feeders and this woodpecker is a frequent visitor.

He seems to like the soot blocks best.

Bad thing about the snow is it is covering all the ice up, that just makes it slicker. Getting to and from the chicken coop has been an adventure in trying not to fall carrying the water bucket

    Hope that the bucket isn’t full of water to spill–that would be cold!

    I seem to fall on the ice at least once a year…We have snow but it hasn’t been warm enough to make ice—it sounds like ice is in our future late this week.

    Stay safe!

      Yep, all full of water. The coop is about 1/2 and acre from where we have to get the water bucket filled so we haul it back and forth when we clean it out every other day or sometimes more often if they get it dirty more quickly. Luckily, I have been so careful, but hubby has fallen a couple of time. No fun at all.
      I hope you don’t get any ice I know that will make things super hard for you and the whole operation :( Hope you all stay safe and warm :)

    Snowing right now over here. I don’t think there’s a day where there isn’t snow on the ground this year.

    It’s still cold here….but more threats of snow than actual snow. We will see what comes of the 1-3 inches promised for tomorrow. Come. On. Spring! Bless you for taking care of the birds! ♥

    Yes, farm chores in the winter are not quite the same as the other three seasons. Besides being a farmer, you have to be an ice skater and a snow boarder. :-)
