Your church in the snow picture is so pretty.... How much snow did you get???? It was still snowing after Thanksgiving... did it ever stop in between then and this weekend? It really is nice to look at... but I am just getting too "old" for dealing with snow anymore.... I love to look at it....from inside a nice snug warm house.

Me too... especially the older I get.

It started snowing right at Thanksgiving and snowed a solid week.

Then the sun came out for 3 days.... maybe 2.5

And now we are back to snow.

Not sure how much.. . It squished down, 4 feet now?

So...


Snow, snow, snow....


And... I hadn't mentioned... I have a rooster in the house. For 4 days now??? 7????

:idunno

Anyway, in some miraculous way, he got a bit of net around his foot (miraculous since there isn't any net in the chicken pen). And then... with the net on his foot he tried to jump down from the perch and got hung up.

He dangled for hours before we found him.

We brought him in... he was doing the "frozen up, I wanna be dead, but I am not yet quite there" thing.

We warmed him up by the fire... then put him on cardboard in the kid's bathtub.

Still not dead...

So we dribbled some warm sugar water into him. Waited 5 minutes.... etc. Got him eating and drinking a bit.

Kids wanted to shower... put rooster on floor of bathroom....

Then we decided he might actually live... and put him on the bottom of the empty parrot cage on cardboard.

By morning... he clearly wanted to live...

Anyway... he is still with us.

He isn't in obvious pain, so it must not be a break, just a bad sprain.

He has now gotten up to squatting... but not yet a full stand.

I am worried.... last time something like this happened...it took the hen SIX WEEKS before she could leave the tractor and go back to the flock.

I don't want him in the house 6 weeks. :sick

Kid slid off the road with the bobcat... into the creek.

Huge tow truck is overbooked.... can make it tomorrow morning... if we plow AND sand. :rolleyes:

I texted our plow guy that we use as backup .... he hasn't even texted me back.

About a foot last night and all-day it has been snowing AND temps warming up.

People had slid off the road all over the place.

I can't believe I drove into town.

Yesterday night we snowblowed the church side all pretty.. took 5 hours.
Kid... after 4 hours of snow blowing our side all pretty... stuck the bobcat before he started the church side.....

I managed to get home...


Just started cooking... and now there isn't any power.
