Frigid weather does make certain things difficult. We got around an inch of rain yesterday, I think, which soaked the chicken's feed. Then it got below freezing, so now there's a frozen hunk in their feeder that won't come out and that they can't eat, and I have nothing to give them their feed in. Oh, they've had stuff to eat today: I took them some nicely clabbered milk for breakfast. For lunch, I had about a cupful of pinto beans and a piece of corn bread left after Cliff and I ate. Meanwhile, I brought the feeder full of frozen glop in the house to thaw, so I can empty it tomorrow and start over with dry feed.
We made a run to the city just because I wanted some good apples, and also because I wanted to get out and go somewhere. We weren't gone even three hours, but it was a change of pace.
Hang in there, folks. Spring is just around the corner.
