Snowing again. Drove to the dump with garbage. Few tense moments as the Ford 150 pickup did some dancing. Have weight in the back but need extra. Unfortunately I cannot lift my wife that high. Another month of this crap weather any way. Forecast. Take the dogs around the barns in most weather. Not often recently. Wind chill -30 plus. Supposed to get up to zero tomorrow. So will work outside. Need the landing board enclosed for the yearlings. Have a speed trap there they are not used to. Teach them now instead of later. All live traps baited again. Expecting the Spring surge.

They're forecasting quite a bit of snow David, that's the uk at a standstill again, shops sold out of bread and milk, councils moaning they've not got enough grit for the roads, schools closed,weatherman saying snow is hard to forecast, usual rubbish, all because there's 2 inches of snow Very Happy Very Happy

No down time last 20 odd years. Live in the house the barns are located on. Walking distance. Sometimes a long walk! However, animals have to be fed on time etc, so one has to make it happen. I have to put up with cold and snow. Knackered has to put up with heat and humidity. Raising pigeons in either scenario can be challenging. I assume on extreme weather days we both wish we could change places!

True Smile Smile the old weather thing Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes throws up many different type challenges etc for those that live by its moods/standards Wink Wink I suggest Hal. Angry little bugger at times bounce bounce I've found, if you just happen to upset him on a bad day as such Smile Smile. cheers

We hardly ever seem to get snow here in Essex, even when the rest of the country is covered.

weve seemed to have avoided a lot of the snow here in leeds, over the last few years.....other areas have come to a stand still, but weve not been that bad really, best not speak too soon tho` eh. Razz Razz

yes, pigeons need feeding 365 days a year, if you have them, you got to make sure they are fed, whatever the weather.
