so glad we didn't get all that snow!  We got a lot of rain though.   As far as I'm concerned, winter had it's chance, it's time for spring!  

 

I saw a robin yesterday! yesss.gif

No damage from the wind last night! yesss.gifyesss.gif

One of my favorite seasonal beers is back in the stores!  yesss.gif yesss.gif yesss.gif

 

 

 

Looks like many small towns down south are literally gone!  

This was the second time in history the Weather Channel issued a TORCON warning of 10 - meaning 100% chance of tornadoes present... wow!   Feel so bad for the people down there.

Went to the coop to feed and it was still windy.Everything was in tack and no damage except my duck tape job came off the plastic on the pen and I now have a bigger tear.

I am really considering getting those clear plastic panels like so many of you have for next winter. Would be simple enough to put up, take down and store in my shed. Add it to my list.

I imagine when I go into town there will be branches down everywhere. DD has a volleyball game and then the rest of the day I'm just gonna chill......Unless my will power fails when we go to TSC! Oh how I love that place!!!

Correction - there is over 18 inches out there.  It was a workout just to walk to the coop and back.  I had to shovel out the coop door just to get in - it was half way up the door.  NOT a big snow fan and NOT looking forward to shoveling.  However, thankfully we didn't  get the worst of the snow.  And as much as I hate snow I'll take it over the tornadoes.

Opa, I have read plenty of your posts on how you raised your boys to know that you are the reason they have become the men they are.

Don't any one tell Nova.  She's liable to strain something trying to catch up.


Congrats!

 

 

I agree, winter has had it's chance. Thoughts and prayers however to those that have been hit by the tornadoes.

 

Daron, that was smart of you to drive with the windows open. I hope it did not make you sick though.

The one little Silkie baby I got from RIRJen is turning purplish color. Does that mean it might be a lavender ?

Making the trip to TSC with the whole family this afternoon.  Have a 15% off coupon so going to get a few things to be ready for when our chicks arrive.  Hopefully having H with me will keep me and the boys from bringing any chicks home with us today.jumpy.gif
