We have had a TON of snow and subzero temps this winter. This is our basement walk out. The wood at the top is taller than I am. This is mostly from drifting.
Yes, that is a -12 f. It's been as low as -19 f.
The chickens have handled it well. When it's below 0, I don't open their door except to put their water in the coop. The coop stays nice and toasty.
We lost a tree in a summer storm last year. It finished coming down recently and took almost all of the branches off of this tree and left a gaping hole.
I made challah! My first challah and my first braided bread. It's part wheat.
I made french toast and bread pudding with it. Yum.
I finally spotted our three-legged deer and was able to get my camera before she left. We nicknamed her "Daisy". We first spotted her in 2011, and almost three years to the date, I got the bottom pics. We saw her a few times this summer with a fawn. She gets along really well. No clue why she's missing a leg, but it doesn't bother her.
