Snow in North Carolina

It snowed overnight and due to the warm weather, it melted by noon time.

I went out to photograph while it was still snowing early this morning.

No flowers were harmed by the snow.

As for the animals, I’m glad the snow laid on top of the net. The chickens and ducks were dried this morning.

It looked like a white tent from a distance.

Certainly Early Spring Here

Perhaps it might be 6 more weeks of winter up North, but certainly not in North Carolina. Regardless of the groundhog’s forecasting being right or wrong, it’s still very interesting to watch and I’m rooting for early Spring. It’s a lot warmer during the day here but still very cold at night.

I guess the winter cabbages/vegetables don’t count for an early sign of Spring but it’s pretty and I couldn’t resist taking the pictures.

The ducks are ready for Spring, the water is a bit cold right now and they’ll enjoy swimming in the pond more once the weather gets warmer.

The heating lamp comes in handy during the cold nights, especially for the young ducks that don’t have full feathers to keep them warm.

The hens and ducks start laying eggs again, it was far and few during the winter months. The past few weeks we had enough to give fresh eggs to my dad and sisters. As of right now we have 60+ chickens and ducks.

North Carolina Winter

I’m happy with one or two snowfalls per year and this year we had an early snow in early-January.

Max loved the snow also, and not afraid of the cold at all.

He certainly can move a lot faster than Bo

I don’t have a lot going on in the garden, and the duck pond is filling up with the rains and melting snow.

The winter vegetables were buried in the snow for several days and amazingly they survived.

This year was extremely cold and the snow stayed for several days. The main roads cleared up and I ventured out to Murray’s Mills to take a few photos.

Across the pond people were sledding down the hill. I don’t think we’ll have another snowfall this year and looking forward to the Spring.
