We got back from camping just in time. The weather turned cold and wintery. Rob was able to capture this picture of ice crystals early one morning. A couple of days later, we were hit with a little snow, and then, some freezing rain. Both of these are somewhat rare in our part of Oregon. Driving on the snow isn’t bad, but once it turns into freezing rain it’s very dangerous to drive. So, we had a couple of days at home, cozying up by the fire and getting things done around the house.
Rob spent extra time making sure the pigs’ water wasn’t frozen, and actually got a few eggs. The chickens had stopped laying entirely for a time, so it was a pleasant, unexpected surprise.
