What a Rollercoaster

 In the past 10 days we've had two ice storms and a snowfall of 10".

Scenes from an ice storm

donkey bowls are ice filled and stuck solid to the ground

transporting water and a torch to the chonkey area 

It was impossible to open the chicken porch (ice buildup  blocked the door) and the horse trailer where all chicken food and supplemental salt for donks is stored.
Thank goodness the chicken feed supply in the barn was full.

Thank goodness for the manger shelter Rick built in 2019
It allowed for immediate feeding outside of the barn.  Then I got to work shoveling a couple of other feeding areas.

With a snowfall this big, I had to shovel paths for the prima donas. 
It was tough with heavy wet snow.

Their bowls were lost under the snow.  We finally unearthed all three today.

Chickens faced a wall of snow outside one of the little doors

As it stands tonight, snow has melted somewhat and everything is accessible -- thank goodness!

One of my taste treats.
It's a bit pricey so I ration it.  :)
