Yikes! It's Snowing! The Power Was Out! It's May?

Hard to believe it is the middle of May and it's snowing and the power has been off all day and part of the night. Yesterday was warmish in the sun and the chickens were having a gay old time outside having dust baths.

This morning we woke up to no power and snow... thick snow. The snow doesn't bother me, but I really do miss not having power... no computer.





 The chickens got apple and broccoli, lay pellets and lots of scratch. They are not that happy, but like all the goodies to eat.







The power came back on just before 8:00pm and the phone came back online too. Computer access! Yea!

It would snow, clear a bit and then snow some more. Since the forecast was for rain I really don't know what is going to happen with the weather.

Well, I am glad I didn't spend a lot of money on plants and try and start my garden only to see it all die off from being frozen.

I'm so sorry you are getting snow! My cabin up at Butte Meadows got snow, too! It had almost all melted off...and now here we go again! I wanted so much to go up for a few days...but I hate snowmobiles and won't use ours...so I have to wait for the snow to melt or use my Land Rover (it tears up the road...yuck!). Stay warm and dry.

I've stopped saying the words s _ _ _ _ _ (current season) and s _ _ _ (the precipitation which you describe here) 'cause every time I SAY one of those words - - - we get MORE s _ _ _. I'm HOPING Mother Nature can't spell, and so far it's working. Go ahead - - - give it a try!

Hi Callie, Welcome back.... I haven't seen you around in while.

So you have SNOW???? Holy Cow... I was complaining since it's gotten cold here in TN also... BUT--we don't have any snow (thank God)... ha

Glad you gave your chickens some extra goodies...
Hugs,
Betsy

SERIOUSLY? SNOW? I would pack up those chickens and head south! My snow tolerance is very limited. I want flowers and warm breezes now. It must be hard for you to see everyone's flower pictures on the blogs! Nancy H
