The temperature has hit a heady +4.5C today. All that is left of the snow is the skeletal remains of snowdrifts in gullies and buttressed against drystone walls, most of the snow was washed away by heavy rain lane late yesterday.
Today has been as dreich as they come, army blanket grey cloud slumped on the hills. The chickens have been out of their run for the first time since the snow, my idea being to stop them getting quite so muddy ( I had to bath a couple last time we had a ‘big thaw’) but my plan failed, they are filthy; wet and bedraggled they had retreated back to their run by 3pm, so low was the light. So I’ll dish up brighter crisper weather, by way of photos from the 28th of November.
