Portland has been getting snow flurries for the last couple days, a pretty rare event around here. Luckily none of it has stuck, or else the whole city would grind to a halt (we get super excited about snow, but the majority of the populous has no idea how to drive in it). However, in the course of 15 minutes yesterday afternoon, we got a beautiful blanket of snow that made everything look like a winter wonderland, if only for a little while- it all melted away in the next half hour.

Unfortunately, photos couldn't capture the antics of our entirely confused chickens. They've never seen snow before, and while they didn't seem to care when it was coming out of the sky, as soon as it covered the ground they began to freak out. Apparently they didn't want to walk on it, so the few that ventured out of the coop went jumping across the yard with wings flapping, trying not to make contact with this weird white stuff all over the ground, and making all human observers crack up. 

Have a great week, everyone, and may you be cozy wherever you are!

The pictures are lovely and the mental pictures of the chickens trying to not touch the ground with that cold, weird white stuff on it were funny.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady
