    Yep finally, here in mid-south side Virginia, we are getting some good snowfall. Some like, some don't.....I'm glad though that we are getting some....hehehe

    When these pics were taken...it has only been snowing about 3 to 3 1/2 hours as of right now.

    Here are a few pics I took.....

    here is the coop and extremely large (1/2 acre) fenced in run area....

    Beautiful! I love to look out and admire the snow, especially in the woods. You usually don't get much there Acre?

    Quote:We hardly ever get any snow here, maybe a dusting to a 1/2 inch at the most (we mainly get the ice). The last heavy snow (that I can think of) was about 7 years ago (here in this area).

    i have been told that it is because we are between two rivers (Smith river and Dan river) and that the moisture follows the waters, [​IMG]

    I sure am glad though, that every so often we get to get a blast from the south. [​IMG]

    Kids are gonna build a snowman tomorrow. I'll take a pic of the handsome fella for ya. [​IMG]

    Yay, Acres! Snow!

    We got about 6" last night. It was fabulous (except the chickens won't get near it!). It's all melting now. [​IMG]

    Enjoy the fun!
