Just when we thought we were making progress preparing for spring, we got sick with the flu and had to stop working on the coop and fencing. We just started recovering, getting back to work and then BAM! We were hit with a nasty spring blizzard! We were away from home when it hit with white out conditions and 18 inches of snow. We couldn’t make it back home until the following day. Spending the night at a cheap hotel eating vending machine food was not the highlight of our lives, but we were thankful we didn’t have any of the animals yet. Something to be said for delays in getting animals!
