I know for some of you that live way up in the northern parts of the world this is a common sight this time of year, but for Northwest Arkansas we have made a new record! According to arkansasmatters.com "the latest accumulating snow on record in Arkansas was 0.2 inch at Corning on April 24, 1910. The latest trace of snow was in Fayetteville, Gravette, and Harrison on April 30, 1903. Today's snowfall sets a NEW record." Yes, that's right folks, snow in May! With garden beds full of veggies and Mrs. Potts and her brood thrown in the mix.
|Chicken prints in the snow!|
No one was really to impressed with the snow this morning, including myself. The chickens didn't even want to come out! This is a stinky picture because I couldn't get the camera to focus, but you can see the chickens wanted no part of that snow business.
Mrs. Potts and the babies seem to be doing okay, though I will certainly worry excessively about them until this cold spell passes.
We covered the garden beds in thick straw, so I hope we don't loose any veggies. They have done fine in colder weather than this so I hope we will squeak by once again!

|Cool weather makes the girls spunky!|

|Well, we can certainly say someone has the right idea in all this mess.|
