The weather forecast said that the area was in for some heavy rains and a chance of snow. Unfortunately, they didn't seem to emphasize how well of a chance of snow that was, nor how much was actually on it's way. Although we're not without means of getting off the homestead if we really needed to, as far as we're concerned, we're snowed in for a few days.
Thankfully, we always try to have resources on hand for any situation, out here on the homestead. So, being "snowed in" isn't all that bad at all. Actually, after several weeks of long days harvesting in the fields, the peace and quiet has been very restful.
Unfortunately, the chickens aren't all that impressed with the snow and have been staying inside the coops for the last few days. I'm hoping that, if the sun makes an appearance today, they'll be enticed to step out and do some foraging later today.
As for us, we've been staying dry and cozy, sitting next to the wood stove in our little cabin. We're looking forward to the return of the warmer temperatures, as they are predicting, as we need to get back into the garden and dig up the second half of our potato harvest. Hopefully they'll be okay, for the most part, after all of this moisture and snow.
