    We had a storm come through saturday into sunday. Power is still out for thousands of people. The snow load was too much for the top of the run and it collapsed. I keep telling the chickens when i open them up in the morning to run quick if they see a hawk!

    I guess i know what I am doing this weekend!

    Wow, Beth, you're the second person who had this happen. I just read where another member had a tree fall on his run. He was also in this bad weather.

    Makes me glad I live in Ohio right now........You hang in there! I soooo hate it when the power is out. We are all electric, which means we have no heat, no water.....TERRIBLE. We just had a wood burning stove put in this spring, so the heat problem is solved. We've got a small generator, so we can have a few lights and television and run the fridge. We store water in empty 2 liter bottles so we can flush the toilets, wash dishes and brush our teeth......

    Pain in the tushy though....You can't shower....We all migrate to friend's homes to do that.

    Take care,
