The Ice Storm Froze your Quail?

Talk about Oregon winters and a storm of freezing rain! You can see what happened to the poor quail on my back porch. Literally embedded!  Starting to feel cold? Cuddle up near the fire, get a book through Sally’s Cafe and Book Store:  Sally’s Cafe and Book Store


Ice coated the Blue Spruce and the hundreds of pounds of snow high up in the top of the tree cascaded down with a crash! Glad I wasn’t under it! Sounded like a war zone walking to the neighbors, stomping on the icy crust to get footing and dodging the big trees from which more cascades fell.


My chicken Fence sagged and so did the peaks of snow atop each one of the posts! Even the barbed wire froze up! Fortunately the 14 hen were snug in their hut with 1 rooster and 8 ducks. Get your cuppa, warm up  and read a good book!


Here’s another shot of one of my fences!img_3732

Snow and ice just drooping down. Fortunately I shoveled off the roof of my 1950’s garage which has 2×4 rafter holding up the roof.



And then there were the Quail! Oh! those poor Quail!


Stay inside, Read a good Book and check out Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore at this site she has great reviews on a lot of books you will want to read! Enjoy! Sally’s Cafe and Book Store

Enjoy!  Rick McBee

    • When one finds a gold mine of book information it’s important to share it with the world. thanks to Sally’s a lot of people are reading who might not have done so otherwise. Glad you empathized with the quail. .

  1. Poor dears. Frozen is one thing, but they still look c.o.l.d. and spooky. o_O
    We've had three freezing night with ice and dangerous walking/driving since the beginning of this year. I forgot to check the squirrels. I hope they're snug somewhere and not keeping the quail company. 🙂

    • Robbie, Loved your cooking site and the baked figurines would be an outstanding set of writing prompts for elementary writing teachers. Share them with the world!. I hope you and others in S. Africa enjoy my take on that part of the world in “The Ghosts of Ukuthula.” My last visit to Botswana and Zambia in 2014 was an amazing trip down memory lane! You’ll enjoy my web site photos:
