    ...all this fresh snow sure is pretty (once the hours of shoveling have been done [​IMG])

    Freaking cold though: -20C this morning (-4F) plus humidity!

    VERY beautiful. Wish we'd get a "little snow" here this year. Maybe just 6" or so. Anything more than a few inches and the entire area is "locked down" for days. We have no snow moving equipment, salt trucks, nothing down here.

    Now you can KEEP that -4F cold up your way. It was 27F here this AM and thats plenty cold enough thank you

    Last night with the windchill it was -14F [​IMG]

    Needless to say, the chickens REALLY don't like it.

    I must be a chicken [​IMG]

    Apparently more snow fell on Monday than this place normally gets in a whole winter - lordy!!

    Quote:[​IMG] We're gearing up for a few days of what we consider bitter cold... highs in the 30s and lows in the low 20s. I would probably die if I lived where you are. The pics are gorgeous though!

    The cold I can deal with - you just either stay inside or wear 3 layers of winter gear [​IMG]

    It's the flock that's having a hard time, breaks my heart to see them cold and miserable like that.

    The frozen water dishes are the WORST!

    My views aren't near as nice, but you inspired me to take some pics of the snow, LOL!

    Quote:oh just an old crappy digital something-or-other, not sure as it's DH's backup camera... my Nikon D40x has been in the shop for weeks [​IMG]

    In such instances you have to sharpen up the images with photoshop!
