Snow Covered Coop – Wordless Wednesday

Last Thursday night we had our first snowfall of the season. When we woke up on Saturday morning, updated to add: WOW! do I even know what day comes after Thursday? I meant on FRIDAY morning when we woke up,  it was to a sparkly, fluffy, muddy, gorgeous day. Funny how snow can make everything look so gorgeous, yet be such a pain in the rear! I guess it has to be pretty so we can live with the trouble it gives us all winter.

The view out my back door when I let Ginger out to go potty wasn’t so bad ;)

nov  2011 first snowfall

      And here I’ve been huddled next to the heater… well it’s been nice the past few days but they keep saying things like “artic blast” on the future forecast – ugh

    We had our first snow this past week too. It may be pretty, but it did not make me happy, lol.

    I love how pretty snow is (especially the first one) but living in it is totally overrated!! ;)

    Wow, it’s beautiful! I don’t mind snow as long as I don’t have to drive in it. But give me a mug of cocoa and a chair by the window and I’d love to look out at that all day.

    we had our first snow fall but none stayed (Yippee 4 me) I will be buried in the yuck soon enough. So what did Ginger & the chicks think of the snow?

      Ginger doesn’t mind to much as long as she isn’t left out there in the scary wide open-ness all by her lonesome for too long :) The chicks – in fact all of the chickens stayed in the coop for most of the day — wimps!

    Gosh, THAT.IS.BEAUTIFUL! But it looks freezing cold too! I can not say that I look forward to snow actually. It is OK for a week or two, but after that it is enough, it can get the hell out of here and I want summer again :D!

    We had snow in October near my birthday the 28th in NH. I had 5″ everything was covered but my mom in another town in NH had 31″ and it was a horrible mess. Then followed with 60-70 degree days – weather has been odd lately
