After such a mild winter it's nice to see some of this kind of snow that sticks to the tree branches and makes the world look like a post card. This is the view from my front door. It's still snowing hard, though it's not obvious in the picture, and the wind is blowing in from the ocean (behind me). I haven't heard that this is supposed to accumulate a lot, but time will tell. In any case, the dogs, birds, and I are comfortable here in the house. So, I assume, are the chickens out in their coop. When I closed them in last night I made sure they had plenty of food and water, which doesn't freeze because it sits on a heated surface. All's right with the world.
