There be ice out there! I just came in from opening The Majestic to let the girls out. When I looked outside I thought it had been snowing. Once Timber and I made it outside I realized that it wasn’t snow, it was hail that has accumulated on the ground! Right now it is very crunchy to walk on and I was able to make it up to the coop with no problem. Timber was so excited! You can see the ice already accumulating on the trees and the branches are starting to hang low. The lock on The Majestic was iced over but I was able to crack it and get inside. The girls came out and didn’t know what to think! I am sure the hail bouncing off the tin roof of the coop was freaking them out. Sounds a little different from rain.
Timber and I headed out a few hours later to take some pictures. It is defiantly icy out there! I don’t know if I will be heading out there again for a while. The temperature is dropping and actual snow should start falling around 6pm.
The girls were very chatty when I went back to check on them. The run is staying pretty dry so I think they will be ok today. Panny is enjoying looking out the window and wishing she could check the ice/snow out.
School has been cancelled for tomorrow. We are bunkered in and won’t be heading out today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Don’t tell Panny or Simon but we are running out of cat food!!
