This is what it looks like outside my window this morning.There is ice everywhere! Our home sits on a hill so its going to be dangerous getting to the garage and the coop,but on a good note its 38 so will melt hopefully.Strange weather we are having,rather have this than the extreme cold

I know winter can be the pits, but the beauty is difficult to be outdone. I love winter pictures with all the ice, snow, trees and barns, even outhouses...Hay P.S. when was the last time anyone heard from ZZ's Babiez? I miss her.

It has been months since I have seen her on here. I thought of her yesterday. I have two little baby silkies about ten days old. Their little wings are starting to grow. I never did understand about the shape of the wings telling the sex. Wish she was here to explain it again.

I don't know where she went or why. There had been a change in her living arrangements or something. I know her mother was sick. That is all I know. It got really slow around here after you left Haystack. She may have just changed websites.

I really miss ZZ too; I hope she'll be back. I can sometimes tell the sex from the feathering; post some pictures and we'll all guess!

We seem to be coming out of the winter storm cycle...at least for this week--knock wood. Hope you all are doing well and staying warm this week.

We had freezing fog last week. I don't know what freezing fog is...

ZZ's mother passed. ZZ has had some health problems herself. She moved into the trailer with her mom to take care of her. She does not have chickens anymore. I will tell her you guys are missing her.

Glad to hear ZZ is ok. I miss her on here too. Hope she comes back some day...

This winter is the worst it has been in decades!! I am soooo over winter, and ready for spring!

Cajun, I was born up in Johnson County, KY. I'd give my eye teeth to trade you places! ;) LOL
Are things starting to turn green down there? Are folks turning over their gardens yet?
I miss Kentucky...

Getting just a bit of green showing. Daffs that are in the sun are blooming. Spring is getting closer!! Folks have planted peas and taters so far. I don't think Johnson county is far from me. I am in Pike County.

Cajun, Johnson County (JC) is not too far from you. Just about 65 miles north and slightly west of you. :) Glad to hear KY has signs of spring!!! It has been a hard winter for you all too. I have lots of family living in JC, so I've seen lots of snow pics on their FB pages. I just hope spring and summer make up for it! lol

Calling for snow again tomorrow but I do not think it will amount to much. More of a nuisance that will keep me from being able to set things out in the garden.

You poor thing. I could not stand that. We got a dusting of snow last night. It was cold until after lunch. Then the sun came out and it warmed up a good bit.

I will never complain about the heat. Those 90 degree days won't be my favorite but before I open my mouth to complain I will think of those -5 days with ice, snow and wind. That will make me appreciate even the hottest days.

We had 70s yesterday and should have today also. Going to rain tomorrow. But it will stay warm so I will take it. Then we will have some more cold. I was tempted to plant some corn but I know it is not time yet. This weather is very frustrating.
