I truly believe it's all Belgium's fault.
He said he was dreaming of a white birthday but I don't think he had THIS much snow in mind.
It started snowing on Friday and by Saturday evening, we were blanketed with about 26 inches.
It's been a rough ride -- no power, no internet or phone, and eight chickens without a heat lamp.
If the power didn't come back (which fortunately it did), I planned to bring the chickens inside to spend the night in a corner of the garage.
Once the sun goes down hens are docile and can be easily picked up and carried indoors.
Of course, the tricky part is getting them back to their coop when they are awake and frisky in the morning.
They can't walk in deep snow very well, so I can’t just push them out the door and point them in the right direction.
Since we were planning a party on Sunday for Belgium's birthday, I stocked up on groceries.
It's a good thing, because we probably won't get out for another 3 or 4 days (more snow is on the way this afternoon.)
Belgium was sad that our guests couldn't come, but he celebrated in style and hung out with the chickens.
On Monday, our lawn mowing crew showed up with a plow. The plow promptly got stuck on our hill and it took hours to get it out and moving again.
It really is beautiful however. See for yourself.
Belgium says, "Enjoy the slide show and stay warm."
