heard the weather man say we’ve had more snow this winter than in half a decade. another one said we had more snow this year than the last three years combined. I lost count of how many times it has snowed. other years it dont last long. melts off in a few days. this year it has stuck around for a while.
I fed my chickens inside their house because of the snow. I noticed wild birds were in the chicken yard scratching thru the snow to get at any feed left under it. I thought poor birds got nothing to eat with this snow covering the ground. I filled their feeder up. I had already bought a 40 pound bag of it. it is good mojo to feed the birds.
the snow caused the blood drive to be cancelled yesterday. I was scheduled to donate my red blood cells. I have been getting emails from the blood banks. they say they in desperate need of blood. I imagine they will reschedule. I will still donate when they do.
now they predicting up to 6 inches of snow on Wednesday. dont know what effect that will have on my driveway. it usually drifts on the top of the hill. the snow piles so high that cars high center. that has caused cars getting stuck there many times.
we didnt get to clean the roosters we have. I said we would unless something comes up. something always does. we will still get to them. they are about a year old so it aint like they are tough. they will make good home made chicken soup. with rice or egg noodles. I probably will make tortilla soup too.
the place I buy deer tails from aint selling any right now. I had planned on stock piling a good supply of them. I bought 30 this winter. i already had some on hand. a typical roach may about 3 tails. i might have enough deer tails for about 15 roaches. I am still hoping that place will be selling more deer tails.
I also ordered 5 deer hides from a meat locker. they said they would call when they got them. they were waiting for late season because the hides are thicker and so is the hair. I haven’t heard from the locker yet. I planned on making some hand drums when I get the hides. it is a chore scraping the hair off.
Andrew had six points in his basketball game. I didnt get to see him play today. I was helping get it set up for a funeral I have to help at. I will catch one of his games later. the kid wonders where his misho is.
I will get to watch the K U game today at 3. I am still a fan. when we were gone, they lost 2 out of 3. since then they have won two in a row. maybe they needed this fan to bring them good luck eh. rock chalk.
