Wintry Weather

We don't get a lot of truly wintry weather here in south central Texas,
but in the past week we've had two separate ice storms.

I had to watch my step heading out to the car
and I had to use the 4 wheel drive on the way in to work.

We didn't miss any school,
but did get two "late start" days. :-)

I would like to present the following pictures taken during our wintry weather.
I believe they display two chicken "truths" -

#1 Chickens are very hardy animals.

#2 Chickens are not very smart.

This is what happened when Taylor Swift decided to roost "on top" 
of the hen house instead of "inside" the hen house during an ice storm. ;-)
