Well, we finally did get some snow! I really had my doubts because it just kept raining but the temps dropped suddenly after noon and then it started snowing! At times it got very heavy. I tried to capture that in the photos but it never comes out that well. It took it a long time to begin to accumulate because there was so much water everywhere still.
The higher areas had much more accumulation naturally; no standing water. Chigger and I went out for a long walk. It was nice but it wore me out. I get times where I feel pretty good but if I do much I get really tired. Just another wonderful effect of shingles. Bleh.
We ended up getting about 3 inches maybe. Not squat really but it was fun while it lasted. The sun actually came out the next day and pretty much all of it has melted now. We are supposed to have sunny, dry weather for the next several days and I really hope we do. We really need it to dry out around here.
Chigger really enjoys the snow but I think she is happy with the sunshine and warmer weather too. She and the chickens have been sunning themselves often the past few days. It's kinda unnerving, after the hawk attack, to go outside and see a bunch of chickens and the dog laying flat out on the ground like they are dead! But, after the first couple of times I realized what they are doing and it's kinda funny. I admit I found a dry spot to sit and soak up some sunshine myself!
