our friend the polar vortex

According to this morning’s newspaper, Ithaca’s average snowfall October 1 through February 24 is 47 inches.  We’ve had 55 this year.  Not an enormous difference, but I’m also curious about average temperatures this winter.

The chickens protested the return of the polar vortex yesterday, but they did come outside for much of the mid to late afternoon.  Sun helps–for humans and for nonhumans.

House update soon.  It’s been a busy, hectic, and stressful semester.
