yesterday it was in the 50's sunny but muddy. Let the chickens out in the yard for a bit seeing as they have been penned up for weeks at a time this winter. Today.......... 40 degrees and dropping, 50 mile per hour winds, snow showers later. I went out to pick up stuff, my son has a truck box full of stuff behind his shed, it BLEW at least 10 feet from where it was, our fill up swimming pool has been sitting over there with about 5 inches of water in the bottom, the wind is picking the whole one side up ! I was out there for less than 10 minutes and it was pushing me around, I am far from a light weight, I came back in because it was taking my breath away. I hope we dont loose power by the way, the chickens know enough to stay in. They would definitely be flying away.
