The Micro.blog challenge word for day 13 is “make”. Our power went out last night just before bedtime, and is expected to be out for possibly days, due to a big ice storm… which mean we have to make do with water jugs like this, since we’re on a well. 📷 #mbfeb

Some pics from my morning rounds just now of the ducks and a frosty duck house roof. It was very slippery out there, but not cold enough to freeze the pond yet. 🦆❄️

The Micro.blog challenge word for day 21 is “winter”. We haven’t had any snow yet this year, but a definite sign of winter is frosty ice crystals on the deck. 📷❄️ #mbnov

Interesting ice columns on a patch of dirt this morning; yep, it’s below freezing overnight again. ❄️
