    I just looked out the window and IT'S SNOWING!!! [​IMG]
    Hopefully we get enough to take good pictures.

    I don't know why I'm so surprised...I do live in Maine and usually this time of year, we have seen snow already.

    What's your temps there? It warmed up here the past few days, but we are suppose to have a mixture of rain/snow tomorrow. Burrrrrrrrr! I'm not ready for the cold. The snow will make it a pretty Thanksgiving.

    Snowing here, too. Caught my by surprise, too, Angie, and just like you, don't know why. It is the middle of November and it does snow in Idaho! I'll try to take a few pics here in a little bit. It looks so cool on the netting over the coops, but makes me realize it probably won't last through the winter. Ohh, well, loving the snow, hating the mess! [​IMG] Hope it does this Thursday, it will make it seem like the holidays. Ohh, sorry for wishing that on all the people who are traveling!

    Cool set up! Thanks for sharing your pictures. I can't wait to see what my chickens do in the snow. That's cool that yours are getting out in it and getting some exercise.

    The temp is reading right around 30deg F, so perfect for snow. I'd rather have snow then ice. It's been pretty chilly.
    Took some pictures.

    My baby. [​IMG] Just kidding, I do love my truck, but I don't really cry when it gets snowy and/or dirty...it is a truck after all.

    Some of my ducks and chickens...guess the snow doesn't bother the few that were out. The rest were hiding out in their coops.​

    Nice set-up. It's snowing pretty steadily here today, supposed to get 1-3 inches I guess.

    Angie: Love the pictures! It's so cute to see the critters getting out in the snow. I bet everything will be all white there soon.

    The weather here is unpredictable. We were suppose to have our first snow last week, but didn't. It's in the 60's today....weird! I know what you mean about would rather have snow than ice. I hate sleet and ice!
    I know what you mean about your truck. Half the time we have so much equipment in the garage that my Suburban is outside. I hate cleaning snow off my car to drive. We really need to invest in a nice big barn.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures!

    Snowing here, too!!! Olivia is out with the girls right now. They don't seem to mind it at all (they are eating the snowballs Olivia makes!)

    Angie, we got out first egg today from the Buff Orp we adopted . Still nothing from penelope the EE, though. I am wishing for a blue/green egg!!!

    How's Hazel?
