    We had about 9 inches of snow yesterday and high winds all night and most of today. This is what I found this morning before moving snow.

    In front of one of the chicken barns. Tracks are from where the dogs dug them selves out.

    The wind even blew snow into one of the coops.

    Wow!! We both have some pretty impressive drifts!!

    My bobwhite pen was almost completely filled with snow this morning (to the top.) Good thing I rescued them last night to put them in the barn...

    Nice. The snow we got was heavy and wet and impossible to move. It's going to be followed later tonight by an inch of ice. Party. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ours wasn't that bad!

    I did find a little snow inside where the pop-door doesn't totally fit the hole. We had ice on the inside of our windows in the house [​IMG]

    I'm so jealous. no snow here yet, unless you count the quarter inch that lasted about a day a week ago. [​IMG] whats the point of that? might as well just have none.

    I love the snow, I just wish it would snow when it was 70 degrees out. [​IMG]
