    I have not yet been able to post a pic of my coop in the snow so here is my opportunity! Last year there were some beautiful pics posted on BYC and I was kinda jealous, to be honest. No longer!!

    Quote:Agreed!! [​IMG] My first winter as well, but the bug has bitten! I will get more this spring but the wife refuses to allow indoor brooding again.

    I love the snow. We get a bit more than the Columbia area. My sister lives over in Chapin, I suppose I should call her and se if she got some, too. You are very near to there. I never thought I would see Lugoff with snow!

    We got about 8" here. The snow is a good insulator. All my waterers that had snow over them were not frozen but any that were set back into the tractors were frozen and I had a dickens of a time with them. Can't work with gloves on so my bare hands took a beating.

    Nadine, I am indeed close to Cola. but Chapin is twice as far! We got 6" here and then freezing rain, so the snow has a crunchy topping that my dogs are loving! [​IMG]
