Last Thursdays snow storm was minimal for all the attention the weather men and women were saying. Major snow storm coming we didn't know if we were to get 10 or 20 inches ( we live in the 20 inch prediction and only 4-5 came. Now on Monday they predicted a mere 1-3 inches and received around 10 here. No snow predicted for today, but it is snowing again. We will wait to see the amount we get.
The chickens have finally begun to lay again so I have eggs for sale again. Still have 3 goats to kid. The 2 young ones have udders swelling, I am not sure of their due dates so it is a daily checking now. Hope it warms up before they kid.
The last warm days all but one of my hives were flying, 1 loss is not bad, hopefully the rest will be ok when the next warm days appear. This is the time of the year bees starve to death because of cold weather they can't move over to more stores of honey and also the queen is laying and more mouths to feed. We need to make sure they have plenty of honey left, if not we feed them emergency feed of sugar until the dandilions bloom and the willows put out their pollen.
Still snowing now ( flurries they say) we will see what we get.
