Here we are, almost the end of January and we haven't had any snow worth talking about. Not much showing in the long range forecast. This is good as each day that goes by without snow is one less day of winter.
Laurie was here for five days. She arrived last Wednesday and left yesterday. We met her at the bus and as we were walking towards the bus, the driver was opening the luggage place under the bus and was laughing and talking with Laurie as he pulls out her computer chair. I couldn't believe my eyes, lol. She had some work to do on my computer so brought along her own comfortable computer chair. When she was leaving, I asked her if the taxi that she was getting when she got off the bus would take the chair along with all her luggage. She said that she had phoned ahead and ordered that a van pick her up. lol.
Its very windy today which makes it chilly outside. Himself bundled up to go for his walk this morning and about 15 mins. later was coming in the door again saying that when he got down the hill and around the corner the wind was so cold it was cutting. Prior to that I had let the chickens out as the temperature was around zero. I wasn't thinking of the wind chill factor. There was nothing for it but to get them back in their greenhouse area again.
Still not a lot of birds at the feeders. I have seen a couple of nuthatches though which pleased me. Normally I have lots all year round but last year I don't think I saw any which was really strange.
Chicken in winter.
