Snow

This is one of the coldest winters and we had our first snowfall for 2018 yesterday. We got more than expected and didn’t have to go to work so I’m out and about photographing the snow.

The chicken and ducks are cold and they have to be well-fed to keep their bodies warm, they also fly back and forth to keep their bodies warm.

The snowfall overnight and made the net very heavy.

The ducks don’t mind staying outside in the cold, but I’m sure they can’t wait for Spring and warm weather to arrive.

The chickens stay inside the cope and only come out to eat.

I’m happy to see the snow but can’t wait to work in the garden again.

Max loves playing in the snow, and I enjoyed a day off from work. I went back to work today, the road was treacherous in the morning especially the secondary roads that were packed with ice. The drive home was not so bad, most roads were cleared.

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.

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.
