|I need snowpants!!! Dunno why I thought I'd get away without them.|
No, they did not come out all day. Yes, I did cater to them in their too small house. It just proved to me that they definitely need bigger digs this spring.
...and quite a few hours under the deck, where they were more than happy to allow me to crawl in and bring them a bucket of nice warm water, and some warm oatmeal/corn mash.
I was thankful today that I had trained them on oatmeal through the fall, because it came in handy today. They had a nice oatmeal/corn mix in the afternoon, and for dinner, everyone (including the snow-bound girls) had an oatmeal-cabbage-cooked potato-feed dinner served with a side dish of warm water. Mmmmm!!! The meal should keep their "generators" lit all night.
Just one more trip outside now to button everyone up and find the food and water dishes so they don't get covered in snow, and we're all in for the night. It was a good day overall. Definitely a different experience than just worrying about getting our car free and our driveway clear (though we had to do that, too), but totally worth it. I look forward to tomorrow.
