Behind the feeder on the left there is an australorp going in the coop through the opening I left open under one of the windows.
Most of the snow has melted where it is in the sun all day, but there is still frozen snow in shady places... like the porch.
Kristine just came in and asked me if I heard the thud. Thud? No. Turns out that she let Morgan out, turned around to shut the door and thud!
Morgan was laying on her side on the Sierra Cement trying to get up. And she has claws! Poor baby. She is ok. I hate trying to walk on that frozen snow.
When Kristine asked if I heard a thud I thought she meant that another tree fell over. Not unusual for trees to fall.
On my one trip outside today I came upon this tree limb that fell during this snow. I put my walking stick on it for size comparison. The stick is near five feet, so the limb is around fifteen feet.
I don't plan to be spending time outside until we have a good wind storm that will knock the rest of the dead branches down. It's a bit creepy walking around under the tall trees knowing there are dead limbs just waiting to fall.
I was up all night again keeping the wood stove filled and watching films on YouTube. I also made a list of over twenty five Christmas movies. I'm looking forward to watching some old favorites and finding some new ones.
And I need to remember to keep my mouth shut when I go out. Or remember to put a muffler around my neck and mouth. My teeth ached for half the day from breathing with my mouth open when I was outside. It didn't feel that cold, but ouch!
