    We did not get any snow that was predicted earlier. We did get ice, though. It's cold out, and I can hear limbs crashing in the woods behind our house. I think I am going to keep the chickens in the coop today - just not much to forage for, plus my flock may become slim pickin's for the family of red tails that live in the woods if they are out today. Hopefully by tomorrow it will all be melted away!

    I would love to see your beautiful Wintry Pics!

    I would rather have the snow than the ice. Yes, I am soooo ready for spring!

    The stuff we have is layered..... ice, snow, ice, snow. Suppose to have more snow this morning sometime. The salt trucks haven't even been able to salt the roads. Too dangerous. Today is day 4 of winter weather advisory or winter weather warning. School was closed yesterday and I would imagine today as well. The temps are all in the negatives which means this stuff is going to be around for a while. When I think we have it bad, I remember those poor people in Massachusetts, New York, and even Michigan have it much worse than us here in Ohio. So far we have only had one water pipe bust and been without water for 5 days. Last year we lost power, had a few water pipes bust, DH accidently set the house on fire (with no water to put it out) trying to fix the pipes, it was a very bad year! I am thankful it's not been that bad yet this year.[​IMG]

    10 1/2" on my truck yesterday. More predicted today. Yesterday was a beautiful day though and most of it we spent outdoors. Now the freezing temps are coming- single digits and negatives! Chains to go out of our mountain driveway, laugh at women in cars with men trying to push them through a parking lot;-) I'm a woman but I drive a good ol truck and know how to use it...a fancy hairdo sure didn't help those ladies. I didn't laugh too hard though..just in case!

    I don't think the chickens appreciated the way the wind blew! Had to shovel it out so water could be had.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Oh my goodness!!!
    Here's hoping you all thaw out soon!!

    It doesn't usually get really cold here, but if we are supposed to get down to 9 degrees tonight, I can only imagine the temps y'all are having! Stay warm and safe!!
