Winter's last blast

 After a mild few weeks, the weather took a turn for the colder this week. Yesterday an ice storm came through and left a fairly thick coating of ice over everything. This morning it warmed up quickly, so the ice began to melt: we could hear it almost exploding off the roof as we woke up.

The chickens' run resembled an ice rink. And it turns out chickens don't like skating, even if they are Canadian.

We had the exact same conditions here (Madison, Wisconsin). This morning I tried to take video of the sun hitting the branches and the ice dropping from the trees. The sounds were fascinating. The squirrels looked a little confused. But it's all melted now. Yay. I hope spring makes a return appearance soon in Toronto, too (maybe it has already?).
