We have had one snow storm after another for the past few weeks. This Winter has just been relentless. Usually we get snow, it melts a little (or a lot) and we get some more. But not this year. The snow just keeps coming and is piling up everywhere. There is no where to put it!!! It feels as if I have been shoveling for days..because I have been. The last storm was a three day event and left over a foot of snow. That was on top of the foot we got last week, on top of the 6″ (we really lucked out with that one) that we got the week before. It has been too cold for any of it to melt so the snow banks just get higher and higher.
That little black dot is our mailbox. You can see how high the snowbank is.
The greenhouse is encased in snow. There is nothing growing in it now anyway….I brought the plants inside. I don’t think I will be starting seeds in there any time soon.
The birds and the squirrels are hungry.
This squirrel is heading up to the feeder for a snack. I will have to refill it soon.
There is a bit left for Mrs. Cardinal.
And more over here. Between the snow cover and the cold, it has been a tough winter for them.
The girls have been spending too much time in the Coop Under the Stairs.
I let them out from time to time so they can stretch a bit. Here they are cleaning up bird seed that spilled when I was filling the feeders. Helpful girls.
And here they are coming upstairs to tell me that they are bored. It has been a long winter!
Fergus and Merlin are hanging out by the stove. Merlin is fine..he loves the stove and enjoys watching the birds at the feeders, but Fergus has missed a few walks due to the weather..and that makes him sad. He loves his walks!
So we are all trying to make the best of it. Hopefully we will get a bit of a break and maybe even a few warm days soon. I think we are all ready for Spring!
