We got a few more inches of snow overnight. This morning we lost power… still off a couple of hours later as I write this, though predicted to be back on soon. Hopefully. We have UPSes powering our internet, but no water, since we’re on a well. One day we want to get a whole-house generator, or Tesla Powerwall, but those are expensive. We do have a portable generator, but that doesn’t help with the water, and isn’t needed unless the power stays off for a long time.
Anyway, this morning Jenn and Rory joined me on the rounds, and I took a few more snowy pics.
This is the tree by the chicken run. The branches are usually high enough to walk under, not touching the ground:
The pond is frozen today; unsurprising with the temperature below freezing:
The brown gazebo and chicken coop:

Rory enjoyed some off-leash scampering in the field; she loves to run in the snow:
