    We just got power back here. And luckily with the exception of some trees and fence we faired rather well. Unfortunately, many of our neighbors cannot say the same. My chickens were a major worry - and I have to thank my husband over and over for building such a secure pen and coop for them. We called it Chicken Fort Knox (the pictures were before the storm).

    We covered the pen in a heavy tarp and them plywood. I put in several water dishes and enough food for a few days. Thank God they were fine - and even laid me a half-dozen eggs!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone. Let us know that you are all okay. (LI Chick. When you get back online - let me know how you and your chicks are.)

    love the chicken Ft. we did pretty well, some street flooding, but thats normal here. Im uphill, neighbors had some flooding, otherwise a few limbs down in the area, and a couple peices of my fencing. Now it is getting cold, watching weather for snow. My hens did just fine locked in their shed.
