Tomorrow it will get above freezing and the ice should all melt and be gone til next year. It melts a bit and then we get more freezing rain. Last night was the first night that the roads were pretty much impossible and it was so quiet. We were out with the dogs and Vince said “I’ve never heard it so quiet!” We can hear a bit of road noise when we’re outside but last night there was not a sound. No one was venturing out on the roads.
I’m hoping that the coating of ice has saved our peaches.
The rosemary will be fine. I do believe rosemary is one of the hardiest of all the plants I’ve grown. I managed to kill our mint but the rosemary is thriving.
The cold doesn’t seem to bother the chickens at all. The wet bothers me though. They have muddy little chicken feet and they get the eggs so dirty.
They tell me that winter is over when the mesquite buds out.
I see ice and I see mistletoe but I don’t see any buds!
