    Noooooooo snooooooowwwww.

    Your pics are very lovely...but just more proof to me that I was born in the south for a reason.

    Enjoy your snow! I'll enjoy my no snow! I do like looking at other peoples snow...at a very far distance...

    I'm jealous....I love the snow, plus we need the moisture! We have a chance of flurries on wednesday, so maybe I'll see some then.

    Well, the crazy weather man says 'chance of snow showers today'. Yeah, ok..We are snow covered! Snow showers typically melt on contact. This is too funny. I opened the buff orp coop to let them free range this morning and by lunch not a single chicken would step outside. Then I closed their door and tried the easter eggers (who will usually range in anything) and they wouldn't come out either. Everybody is in bed by 4pm already. [​IMG] Oh well, maybe tomorrow will be a better day. I doubt it. My dd is already asking if they'll have off from school tomorrow. [​IMG]

    That is beautiful!!!!! I love snow. I wish it didn't have to be so cold to get it. Is the long red out building a chicken house?

    Thanks all. Yup, we love it in the woods. Our property is connected to state game lands too, so it is really nice here. Yes, all those buildings are chicken houses. There are 2 others not pictured and then we have flight pens for our turkey and pheasant and several other smaller pens for our quail and chukars. That long red one is split into 3 pens inside and they each have their own yard to go outside. Of course, no one went out today cuz they're apparently all afraid of snow again.
