The day after the Blizzard Niko. I’m always amazed at how brilliant the sun shines on days after the storms. It’s now just beginning to rise. We have had quite the weather this past week. Two days ago Blizzard Niko hit the East Coast and Cape Cod- where we call home.…

It snowed again last night. I got up early to begin shoveling and snow blowing the long driveway to the street. It was quiet. A few birds were singing but for the most part, I was alone to contemplate the morning, the crisp air, and the most beautiful blue sky that had begun to emerge…

Snow covered coop and run Last night it snowed.  We awoke to a beautiful winter wonderland.  I brought a broom out and dusted off the blanket of snow that covered the run.  It slid off with ease.  When I let the chickens out this morning they were curious about the white visitor from the sky. …
