Icicles On The Chicken Coop

We finally got some wintry weather. It's mid-January and this is our first snow of the season. It started threatening to snow on Saturday, and then really got serious about it Sunday. Now it's Monday and the snow is still coming down. But the real snowstorm isn't supposed to hit until late Tuesday or early Wednesday. These pictures were taken early this morning. You can see there's even a tiny icicle on the chicken house. The chickens don't seem to mind the cold. In fact Shirley, the black star, has decided the dead of winter is the perfect time to molt. Poor bees. I'm sure they're all snuggled up. Doesn't the apple tree look pretty with its dusting of snow?
