A little over a week ago, we had a big snow storm and were put under a blanket of 8-10" of snow, which is quite unusual for our part of Texas. All the critters fared well (especially the dogs), but the bird netting on the chicken yard didn't take the weight of the snow too gracefully, as you can see from this photo of part of their yard.
Today it's a sunny 76 outside - lovely, just lovely! I spent some time fixing the netting so the birds could enjoy their big side yard again, but it might have been too soon, according to the weather outlook for our part of Texas... Snow, on Tuesday!? And look at the change in temperatures! Today we've got the doors and windows open on the house. The rest of the week doesn't look like we'll be doing that!
