As much as I envy the people who can rise with the chickens, I was destined to be a night person. I took these photos just before midnight. I love the set of ears in the first one. Second photo is Juneau (AKA Boogie) as he looked when he followed me back inside. Isn't Boogie the most unflattering nickname for such a beautiful animal? It fits him SO well though - he truly is a Boogie. It's all about him in a BIG way.
We have a good 4-5 inches of snow, then a layer of ice, then another few inches of snow. We get these kinds of storms every few years. Right now it's 20 degrees - quite invigorating!
