First Snow In Boise

My house in lights

I have found the secret to getting the first snow of the year- every year, the night after I hang the Christmas lights, we get some snow (even if  only a dusting). This year was no exception!


Snow all around us but none at our house.

When I looked outside yesterday morning we had wet lawn from the rain. When I went out about a mile from our house, there was snow-  

We got our snow this morning!

The end of the garden

The winter has been so mild we still have Collard greens growing in the garden cold frame-

I know there is food under this stuff.

My wife Nancy keeps 4 urban chickens. This is the first time the two large New Hampshire Red's in the foreground have seen snow. They weren't quite sure what to make of it!


  1. Congrats on getting some moisture, I sure wish it would come on down here! It's always fun watching the chickens experience their first snow!

    1. The snow only lasted a few hours but it was fun to watch. The oldest chicken did not want to come out at all but the 2 news ones came out full speed ahead.


Thanks for dropping by, I'd love to hear from you!
