Thought I would share a few more ice photos from around the farm. This is ice that has formed on a cactus that's growing in the pasture. It was a challenge getting into the pasture, since the latches on the gates are all iced over. But I was on a mission!
It was 23* today when I took these photos... and we might see a whoppin' 27* on the temp gauge for our high today! But things are supposed to warm up a smidge starting tomorrow with a high near 35*. I realize that for some of you, our weather seems almost tropical! But I assure you, it's COLD here! *grin*
And finally, the chicken house and part of the garden. Those trees hanging over the backside of the chicken house are the ones that concern me. They are still very full of leaves, and those leaves are all covered with ice, making it very heavy. If those trees snap, they could easily take out the back of the chicken house. Here's hoping they hold up. You can also see the netting around one of my garden beds... it looks like white cloth draped between two posts in this photo.
