SPRING ?????

Would someone please pass on the meaning of the word to Mother Nature ?
This is what we got up to this morning.

Not sure what time it started , but it was coming strong at 2 am when I got up to my son , and it didn't stop until way after lunch time .

Now ,it is thawing a bit , but it is very cold , so hoping it doesn't freeze as the road conditions were pretty bad today. The netting on top of the chicken run was so heavy with wet snow , it has pulled one of the posts down , and there was a cable down at the end of the street when we went out earlier on.

A sad day for us ,as one of the chickens died this morning. Poor little Bossy was unwell yesterday afternoon , and with the turn in the weather she didn't make it. One thing about chooks , once they get ill, they don't tend to last very long. So we have a sad little boy today as she was his chook , but we will hopefully get a couple more later in the year , when it really is spring , lol.

Brrr!!!! and last week it was Summer. Hope you are wrapped up warm. Sorry about your chicken licken hope it was not the sky falling in that did it. I have always had a hankering to keep chooks but DH is allergic to them and their eggs . Hope the boy is feeling a little less sad now.
