We have had a lot of snow this Winter so far and a period of freezing rain last week left all the roofs here heavily loaded. This is the back corner of the house, look at all the ice. We are concerned about ice dams on the house and garage, but not much we can do about it right now.
The garage, the front is like the edge of a glacier.
The chicken coop. I wonder if the layer of snow helps keep the chickens warm? The chickens haven't ventured outside for the past few days as the temperatures had dipped back to the vicinity of ten below.
Here is the woodshed, a nice snow hat to keep what is left of the wood warm.
The sheep house, not too bad.
The goat house.
The storage bin outside the goat house. I won't be getting anything out of this bin until Spring.
The ram shack(le). This has less snow than the others as we had to shovel off the top layer and remove an iceberg weighing around 300 pounds. I am amazed that the tarp didn't just tear away. It was close as the tarp was torn in several places and had severe stretch marks. It took the Commander and I several hours to remove the berg, we had to break it into several pieces before we could get it out.
Finally, the outdoor grill. I can't wait for Spring!
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
