Good 33º dark gloomy morning. Some sprinkles of snow in the night and more coming down now. Barn roof covered (probably the house too), with snow on the fence railings, and a bit in the grass.
Rain/Snow "likely" today 40%-60% and tonight 100% rain and rain/snow 90% according to the predictions.
Yesterday was just plain cold. When I get dressed I put my clothes in the clothes dryer, wait a few, and then dress right there, taking out one piece of clothing at a time. Ahhhhhhh..... those warm clothes feel so GOOD!!!
By afternoon we had some on and off sun and warmed to 50º.
Bruiser and Dude both enjoyed the sun....
My neighbor Frank called me to say there was a car left down on the road blocking part of our driveway. It was an old car and not locked. I told Frank maybe we should just push it into the ditch! Apparently the neighbor down by the road had called the Sheriff's Department. My Schwans order was to be delivered about 11:30, so I was hoping the car would be moved by then. But, apparently when Leon came by at 1:30, the car was gone so I got my order!

When Cory from All Natural was here Monday he asked me if I only had Tom turkeys here. I said the flock of Toms was 11
and I didn't understand why we hadn't seen any hens yet, as it's mating season!
Well a few hours later there was turkey "commotion" outside and I looked and there were 17 hens!!! OMGOSH. Did they know we were talking about them? LOL!

A couple days ago I had read about a dog flu that had affected a dog in Grants Pass. Apparently the dog came from Reno where it contacted this flu. The flu is deadly. Now everyone in Grants Pass, and or Rogue River who walk their dogs out among other dogs or board them are getting the flu shot. It will have to be given 6 weeks before boarding or having them among other dogs. Check out the second link for the symptoms... #1 is coughing.
