Too Cold!

Okay, as far as I'm concerned, Old Man Winter can go back out on the same iceberg he rode in on. I don't do cold. Of course, we woke up to no water. At least we had electricity until the rolling blackouts started. I am so thankful for our wood stove. It is toasty warm in here. Buddy had it down to where it kept the whole house warm all night. The only bad thing is that he left his little plastic wisk broom on the stove yesterday when he lit it and it melted it all over the top and stunk up the house for hours. What a mess.
My poor chickens.. this is what was in the nest boxes...

All their eggs were frozen. Poor things..that must have been like sitting on ice cubes! Brrrr!
Hope everyone stays warm in all this. I hope it holds true about that fat groundhog not seeing his shadow and spring is around the corner.
Happy Trails...


  1. Oh my word! Frozen eggs - I never thought about that, Berte! Course, I aint got chickens yet neither!

    I'm hoping the same as you about the groundhog. I'm ready for spring around here in Texas. Then I'll be soon whining about the heat again!

    I love your music!!! "Swing" is SO happy - I'm tappin' my toes under my desk! Have a good 'un, girl!

  2. Sorry about the eggs and the cold--Sending warm thawing vibes in your direction--We have plenty here in Virginia today!! Take care!

  3. How dreadful about the frozen eggs. Those poor hens!

  4. Oh My, frozen eggs..I can never remember that happening in Minnesota..between the straw and the hen bottoms they were kept warm until someone gathered them. I hope you warm up..we were only about -24 F this morning:)

  5. Berte,it was so good to hear from you. I lost you awhile back and now 'you're found' HAHA! Poor chickens! Silly husbands!
    Good to visit with you. I'm renewing my membership on your followers list.
    Hugs Deb

  6. Man, I'm glad I don't have to get up at 5:00 and slop the hogs and collect the eggs in this weather! I guess I wouldn't make much of a farmer. I got caught in a blizzard in Idaho last year and I found out I wouldn't have made much of a cowboy, either. Ha.
