Buried in a Blizzard

We are buried here in Rhode Island. Out here in the woods we have about 18 inches of snow with drifts up to 3 feet in places. I thought I would share some random pictures from our yard and the kids playing outside.

Our welcome sign. I really should paint that.

Our house all plowed out.

The pine tree out front.

The buried picnic table and some birds lunching on seed.

Heavy branches.

Our beautiful Roo Paprika. Panini in the doorway is reluctant to come outside. The chickens were very confused today with all of the snow. Most of the run is covered but the snow just drifted everywhere and they were not happy.

Our other Beautiful Rooster named Ruby.
Here he is imitating a flamingo on one leg.

Paprika being mean and not letting the girls outside.

Our Buff Orpington named Butter managed to sneak outside.
On cold days I give them a treat of warm corn mash and some yogurt or sour cream. It's like a bowl of hot cereal to them. Spoiled chickens.

Scratching for some corn.


The compost bins.

Winter hotel.

Coreopsis peaking out in snow.

Drifts on the back roof.

Drifts over the jacuzzi.

Drifts in the fountain.

Cold Cow.

Our front door.

The snow covered blue spruce on the edge of our driveway.

Natures Christmas Creation.

Larry plowing the driveway.
Tae making sure he does it right.

The backyard.

Heavy laden pine trees.

Yellow lab in white snow.

Love the ears!

What nice neat rows honey!

Stewie had a great time.

And plowed his own paths.
Hope you are staying warm.
