We got snow in the Hill Country! Woo-hoo! Didn't think to snap a picture on my way out to work this morning, so am hoping Spouse will think to do so come daylight.
We had heard that a hard freeze was coming through the area, so I asked Spouse if he would pluck the sleeping chickens off their preferred snooze spots on the juniper (aka Texas cedar) boughs and place them into their coop. Thank goodness he did so! The winds were so fierce, Spouse says, that the upright feeder was knocked over twice. For once, all the excitement occurred while Spouse was home and awake, and I was sleeping. Still... it's snowing! It's snowing!
I can hear my East Coast friends snickering now.
