    Gah!! :mad:

    I hate ice. And I wish winter was over because I hate them both!

    How many of you have had something along the lines of this happen:

    I went out to check eggs again this morning, because I want all the eggs I can get to put in my one bator. I had already checked them earlier and got 5 eggs. So I figured I'd go out again and check.
    So I went out with my basket and pulled my broody off the daily eggs, and I got 2 eggs. So I was walking back to the house with my eggs in the basket and I hit a patch of ice. The basket flew through the air and I flew towards the ground.
    Out flew the eggs right towards the ground and bam. No more eggs.
    UGH! I'm so furious.
    And to add to that, it was a thin patch of ice so once I hit I broke the ice and got sopping wet from the water within.

    GAH! :mad:

    I hate ice.

    Quote:I was saying to my Dad the other day it seems like all we get anymore up here is sleet, freezing rain, or ultra-wet snow that turns to slush when it hits the ground. I don't ever remember it being like this before. You had sleet/freezing rain once in a great while, not twice a week like it's been this winter.

    I agree, time for winter to go! [​IMG]

    We are just digging our way out of the massive snowstorm we got over the weekend, this is the worst one yet!! I haven't seen this much snow since I was a kid. It is time for winter to go away, but apparently according to the weather man it's not over and may continue into April. [​IMG]

    ME, TOO! We have both, even though I live in the South, I'm in the mountains at 2000 ft, so we get a little snow on occasion. I have lived in Ohio, Utah and Colorado, too, so I've had enough snow to last my lifetime. Utah and Colorado are so dry that I didnt mind those so much.​
