Tues. Feb. 6th. 2007
Bloody cold this morning, -l8C. Not only that but woke up at 4:30 am and the power was out. That meant that the light in the chicken house that gives the heat was out as well. I nearly got sick to my stomach with the worry about them. Sometimes I wonder why I got them but then figure it's better than the fate that was in store for the creatures. As soon as light cracked the sky I bundled up and went out to check on them. They were fine, thank goodness, tough little buggers. Hopefully one day soon the days will warm up some. They finally got the power back on at 8:30am. The whole peninsula had lost their electricity. I often think of people with electric heat at these times, must get very cold in their houses. Lovely sunny day and I have been checking outside for birds with camera at the ready. I'll never get any housework done at this rate! The picture is of a little male Downy Woodpecker, taken yesterday.
