It started snowing in the Seattle area, all of the PNW actually, yesterday and much to our surprise we got almost 9 inches overnight! Here the obligatory photographic proof.
The chickens are not quite sure how to take the white stuff. They won’t come out of the coop, although it is a really nice and big space … for chickens that is.
A nice and accommodating neighbor even swung by with a snow blower, which is actually quite rare in this part of the country. He does a lot of community projects and is a such a good friend.
The birds are crazy happy with Suzy’s feeders and fresh water every day. Truth be known though, the snow will be gone by Monday or Tuesday, it rarely lasts more than a few days around. here.
The snow is quite beautiful. Having grown up in the midwest, where snow is quite common, having it show up here for a day or two each winter isn’t that special. But it is for the PNW folk, many of whom consider a reason to stay home and make snowmen. 🙂
We are prepared with our snow boots, snow shovel, kitty litter for the sidewalks, and such. And when we know it’s coming we stock up and don’t drive anywhere until it melts. There are just too many folk who insist on driving when they probably would be better served by staying home. Prost!
