    Winter white has decided to remind us virginians here of that [​IMG]

    it has been WINDY and cold for the past two days, I went out this morning to find that BOTH of the ducks water sources are COMPLETLEY frozen , I had to take really hoy water out to melt holes in the water, it did very little but gave them something to drink.

    my pekin maude layed an egg out in the open at one point, I've been wanting one of her eggs to incubate cause Big Lenny, the only male she will allow to mate her is a crested pekin, she's layed two eggs, BOTH of her eggs and the mallard egg this morning were completly frozen and the shells cracked, we're going to eat them in a bit.


    sooo that being said, i've been reminded that it ISN'T spring yet [​IMG]..and winter is a bit late o_O

    Oh don't get me started on winter. [​IMG] I HATE being cold and am tired of this cold front that has recently arrived.

    Maybe if we all chant "SPRING! SPRING! SPRING!" Mother Nature will get the point! [​IMG] (I wish! [​IMG] )

    We had the coldest night since 2003 last night. It was 0 F out, not including the wind chill. Tonight it's warmed up to a swealtering 17 F.

    We've had a pretty warm January, all things considered. This past week has been insane, but a day before the cold snap it was almost 70 F out. The weather keeps changing around.

    I can't wait until March when the weather is cold, but at least above freezing.

    Bleh.
