Owl Cam & Snow
This site is pretty cool. It shows an owl named Molly sitting on her eggs in her owl box. There are also other links to view other animal cams as well.
Here on the farm.....
Last night we got some rain, which turned to sleet then snow. It is still snowing. We probably have 4-5 inches now which isn't too bad. What is bad, is that it is blowing and drifting. Our county road is not clear at all. In some spots we have 18inch drifts. In front of the girls play house there is a 3 foot drift. (Remember that Thurs it was almost 70 degrees)...Tomorrow it is supposed to be close to 40, so hopefully it will start to melt off, although as deep as the drifts are it will take them several days. The girls and I went to the city today and saw quite a few car accidents and cars in the ditches. The chickens didn't even come out of the coop today-they wanted nothing to do with the snow, and I don't blame them.
Elizabeth went to the Missouri Christian Convention with our ministers family. She has called me several times. Her favorite things? Riding in the elevator and escalators and swimming in the hotel pool, which was a salt water pool. Since we was gone for a treat, we took Friday and today off from schooling. However, I did some thrift store shopping, and found in Kearney MO at Trash to Treasures some great consumable math books for $1 each, so of course I bought each of the girls one in each version. They consist of: Probability and Logic, Introductory Geometry, Measurements, Arithmetic with Fractions, Fractions, Decimals & Percents II, and Introductory Algebra. So, each girl gets 7 books, each consisting of at least 26 worksheets (front and back). The worksheets are colorful and have pictures and illustrations, which they all seem to like, and I liked the price!
Thursday Emily gave a demonstration speech to a boyscout group. It was over smoke alarms. Later they will help her install some smoke alarms for community service, as part of a project she is doing for 4H and Girl Scouts.
