Snow, snow, snow, snow, SNOW!
It won’t be long before we’ll all be there with snow.
Snow, snow…I want to wash my hands, my face, and hair with snow!

The day before, I had checked the weather app on my I-phone. I have to perch it on the window sill for the best chance to get a signal, and it takes about 5 minutes to load when we are way out there in the sticks. When it finally loaded, I stared at it trying to make head or tales out of the blurry icons. Then, I saw something that warranted getting my reading glasses out to take a better look. Though the reading glasses gave me clearer vision, I still did not recognize the icon before me. I took the phone over to Bud and said, “Look Bud! Does this icon show SNOW in the forecast? Is that an icon of SNOW?” We unofficially decided that there was no way it was going to snow.
I was shocked when our deluge transitioned into sleet, and then, full-on, 100 percent, bona fide SNOW. Everyone up that way has been talking about the harsh winter they’ve had this season. We just thought Winter was OVER, seeing how we were in the middle of March…on Spring Break!
We continued to go from window to window just watching it come down and pile up…and down it came. It snowed all…day…long.
The chickens chose to stay out in it. I had the heat lamp going all day and night in case they decided to go back inside.
When it snowed while we were there in the Ozarks over Christmas Break, the hens were afraid to walk in it. There was much less snow that time, and it having been their first experience with snow, they would fly from one snow-barren part of the yard to another. This time, they were all in it. They had no choice.
The rest of the day, we stayed nestled inside except to go outside and take some pictures. We had planned on grouting the shower that day. I was so excited about the flood, and then the snow, that I could hardly stand to work. We eventually did…but for the most part, we just stayed in and had a ‘snow day’. We also drank lots of coffee…because it seemed appropriate to do so on such a day.
Simba did more of what he usually does.
Everything looks good covered in snow. While I know you all might be getting tired of seeing the same scenes over and over, I take in it’s beauty anew each time I see it. It was all breath-taking newly covered in snow! Here are some of my favorite pictures. I can never decide which ones to post, so prepare for just a few. 😉 Here they come!
