Yesterday it snowed from nine o’clock in the morning until twelve o’clock lunch time. The flakes were the biggest we have ever seen and the snow was the sort that sticks together and settles quickly. It was quite dark in the chicken run.

And on the patio

Over night the snow froze and this morning it was crunchy. Today we have blue sky and sunshine so I took two photos of the same views.

We are being ultra careful as it is thawing and freezing and although it looks beautiful it is treacherous. When I go up to the chickens I walk on the crunchy snow.

I have had to take the chickens some water first thing in the mornings as it freezes overnight. We are not used to this. The sun today is most welcome though.

    Lovely to look at, and unusual where you live – my uncle told me he had 4-5 inches in Maidenhead. Very cold here and hen run has been frozen, but no snow over the past week; yesterday was the first day the drinkers had not frozen over. Take care.

      Last night there was still frozen snow but it had started raining. It continued to rain overnight and this morning the snow had gone. After three days of frozen snow I am glad to be rid of it. Overnight temps forecast to be above freezing now so chickens drinkers will be okay. I think we are all looking forward to spring.

    You had what we had, last Saturday, we were well pleased when it rained in the night. Lovely to look at, but so frightened we will slip, and if you break a bone, have to go all the way to Norwich.With out transport, quite a worry.

      Ours came on Sunday and stayed for three days. We were also worried about slipping. Luckily once I had made deep footprints in the snow it then froze and was safer to tread in the rough foot prints than it would have been if it had been smooth. I was really glad when the rain cleared it though.
