LIGHT SNOW FLURRIES

THE CHIEF IS FOREVER SHAPING YOUNG MEN. (Look at poor Ryan's face.)
DILLON AND RYAN ARGUE OVER WHO HAS THE BEST IDEA PLACING THE BROODER.

BETH CELEBRATES THE ABSENCE OF THE BLIZZARD BY THE NEXT AFTERNOON!


Our weather forecast for yesterday said to expect "light snow flurries in the AM". My son and grandchildren arrived safely to spend the weekend working on the remodeled chicken house. The snow flurries started and continued the enitre day, finally coming down in huge flakes piling up. My poor family men were freezing and the job had to be finished at least to the point the chickens could be safe on their roost for the night.

Granddaughter and I worked in the house and felt sorry for the guys but gave thanks we were gals and were not expected to be out on the frozen tundra.

We are expecting our friends from Kentucky tomorrow or the next day. They are returning from a long visit (since November) to California. As far as we know their old Kentucky home is still without power so the haven't been in a big fizz to get back there.

Tuesday my satellite internet will be hooked up and hopefully I can make all my blog rounds and read and post comments with new found speed. Cross fingers please:) I'm trying not to get my hopes up.

The boys are already gathering at the breakfast table so I guess Granny Annie better head that way. They just love to come to our table and say, "More eggs please."

  2. We had some beautiful flakes falling all day yesterday, and ended up with 6 inches by this morning. Everything is coated with snow, and the sun is shining brightly. I probably won't be getting out of here until Wednesday, when we'll get to 70, but at least it's not ice! And it does look beautiful.

    Hope the chickens had their new coup to sleep in. Happy March!

  11. I just saw the pictures and I can't believe how much Beth looks like Chelle to me. For some reason I wanted to cry (really not sure why). She is just beautiful as well as the 2 boys are handsome. Tandy must be so proud!

  12. Sorry I just had to butt in here to say how much I like Ryan's jacket!

    I've read your posts on Riot Kitty's blog and always think you have something interesting to say. :)

  13. Me and frozen tundra do not mix. I'd have been in the house with you girls. I'll scrub toilets and mop floors, but PLEASE don't make me go out in the cold weather!!!

    I've been back in AR for awhile, and it did not bother me one iota that I missed out on that ice storm. Your Kentucky friends probably didn't mind it either.
