Monday, Jan. 22nd, I think!
Got up before daylight as usual and on looking outside saw that we got another foot of snow since yesterday. This on top of what was already there. The cats wouldn't go out because the snow was too deep. Got on my big ski-doo boots which come up to my knees, bundled up and went out to clear the deck. After doing that, I shoveled a path to the chicken house. Then I got up on the ladder and pushed as much snow as I could off their "solarium" roof. Needless to say I had a few off colour words to say. Came back in to get feed for chickens and fresh water, brought that out, and I can say, they are none too happy. No going outside today for them. Next thing was to get the snow off the platform feeder as there were a lot of Juncos trying to find seed. That done, had to come back in to get containers of food for them. I will have to shovel a path to the feeders sometime this morning and get the snow off the wood to get some inside for the fire. We are waiting for the plow to go by so we can get at the driveway. And to think we have another two months of this.....Argh!!! Now, if I look at this in a positive light, as I am trying to lose some weight, think of the calories I am burning. lol. So, must get breakfast, then out and at it once again.
