I confess I was a little jealous when all of the east coast was shut down and having snow days. Not that I envied the people stuck on icy roads in Atlanta or any of that, but man, I wished we had some snow! And that’s saying something because usually I’m chomping at the bit for Spring (actually Summer because Spring is too windy!) as soon as the Christmas decorations come down.

This year we’ve had an extremely mild winter. Which is nice when you don’t feel like freezing all the time! But in the summer we end up paying, big time, for the “nice” winter when there’s NO water and the landscape starts going up in flames! Not nice at all!

So we were all happy and thankful to wake up last week and see SNNNNNOOOOOW!!!

It’s beautiful! And the kids, of course, needed to run outside, before breakfast even, and play in it!

I was interested in the animal’s response to it, so I took my camera when I went to let the chickens out. They came flocking (see what I did there?) out like usual to swarm over the kitchen treats that I usually bring them in the morning, but came to a screeching halt at the door when they saw the snow.

One was a little more enthusiastic than the others and had made it a couple steps into the white stuff before noticing that something was up! šŸ˜‰ Ha ha! Greedy chicken!

They got over their confusion, however, and started stalking me in case I accidentally forgot to give them something yummy!

The baby goats didn’t seem to phased by the snow, and Polly and Polka have seen it at least a couple times since coming to live with us. It’s not their favorite thing to walk around in, but they cope. Right Polly?

Anyway, we’ll take every bit of moisture we can muster to help come summer! And the kids all begged some hot chocolate when they came in “frozen” of course! šŸ™‚ And that was the last of the Swiss Miss!! Now to find a real food replacement!
