This is a picture from last week after three inches of snow fell...
and then, right before dark, the sun came out and spread these amazing colors across the sky.
We are supposed to get more winter weather today~ but it's in the form of ice this time.
I hope not, because Hubby works for the utility company and
I might not see him for a couple of days if the power lines start coming down.
The company he works for not only feeds electricity to our town and a few surrounding towns,
it also feeds power "across the mountain" as we say around here-
a remote area that is not very populated and also not very accessible in bad weather-
but the people there need power just as much as I do, so.... *sigh*
Speaking of Hubby, today is our tenth wedding anniversary!
I was hoping we could take a little day trip and see some sights, but...
maybe another day when the weather isn't threatening.
While looking for some papers in a drawer the other day,
I found a picture of us not long before we were married...
Hubby looked so young, and I looked so.... thin... :)
Happy Anniversary, Sweetie...
This keeps the cold wind and rain (or snow) from blowing in on them. Silkie feathers feel like fine hair, and if they get wet they can die from exposure because they are not insulated from the cold like chickens with normal feathers.
I also put some plastic over the door to the big girls' coop to help keep them warm at night.
The sheep on the other hand aren't worried about the cold at all. Its been nearly 8 months since they were sheared and their wool has grown back enough that now they are sporting warm, woolly sweaters.
Hopefully the power won't go out,
because I want to finish the crib quilt I've been working on for a while by this weekend.
The stippling is taking me longer than I had hoped for,
but I am trying to take my time because I don't want to mess it up now.
And I'm just naturally slow, so that doesn't help either... *grin*
If the power does go out, I've got plenty of firewood, good books, candles,
and a pantry full of canned goods...
And dog treats... :)
Happy Friday, everyone~ stay warm where ever you are!
