Sun Wonder

The Wise Old Hen wonders:



OK, so we like this 50 degree weather well enough, but WHAT the heck is going on?!? This is Minnesota and it’s nearly December, after all. I sense climatic shift, and I’m not sure I should be happy about it... Is it OK to enjoy a day wrought by massive human changes to the planet?

(On the plus side, it gave WF time to wrestle with the outdoor window plastic, in background). Ah, the old practiced guilt can even get in the way of enjoying a rare sunny day in November! Was anyone else torn about enjoying this warm weekend?

Hee hee, I think my hens were too busy running around enjoying the weather - and probably laying eggs where they're not supposed to be - to worry. Lucky birds!

I heard we may be getting another el nino ): we really need the snowpack for the drought.

Yesterday was in the 60s and we had over 1.5 inches of rain. It felt odd to be experiencing this at the end of Nov.... in Minn!

Hey, all-

Wierd weather, yes indeed. And she IS a nice chicken, I think. She's one of our original batch, and her color seems to be fading a bit. The young ones are much more golden/buff.

I'm experimenting with categories on this site (not up yet), cuz I've posted WAY more chicken pictures than this one. It gets a bit out of hand, sometimes...
