Enough is enough!!!

We had yet more snow overnight, and when we went out to feed the animals, Grommet came out of his shelter to meet us....
As you can see, the snow is a bit deep!

I just had to take this picture of Archie, with snow on his face as he looked at me from behind the hay rack after we had refilled it.
Though we have a lot of snow it's not cold, which means that the sheep are not going through the hay like they did last year. Which is good as if this weather is going to last for any length of time.
The chickens are not particularly happy, they are staying in their hutch more than most. But today with the sun and mild weather I opened up their main door, to air the hutch out and they seemed to appreciate it, but by 2.30 they were all shut up again with water and feed. Two of the hens have decided to go into a moult, so I will have to check my chicken book to ensure that they don't need anything extra.
There's one good thing about the snow I've no excuse not to finish painting the bathroom now that Tim has done all the tiling.

Snap! It's looking like we need to get used to it as it's here to stay.

The snow started in Harrogate yesterday at 2.30, with nearly 5" by five o'clock. We were out of the carpark by 5.20, and eventually home by 8.45!!!

At least you're not too cold. Lovely photos.
