I prepared for Sandy in a funny way.
I locked up the girls in the house, moved their waterer inside, gathered the eggs, and closed the window.
The coop looks weird, empty in the middle of the day.
Did I buy any water for myself? No.
Did I buy canned goods? No.
Did I protect my chickens from the hurricane?
Gunther and I watched from the cozy indoors.
And Tuesday dawned, sun on dark clouds, and the smell of spring in October.

Gunther is a great name!
And I, too, will raise a glass for ‘the smell of spring in October’. Well said, friend.
Gunther, Otis, and Teddy – three good dog names 🙂
Funny… We had our chicks safe too and left them in an enclosed run with their house inside to go in and out of. They seemed a little frazelled after it was over, but appear to be recovering now. Hope your ladies are recovering too 🙂
It’s funny what having chickens (or really, what having anything other than yourself to worry about) will teach you 🙂
They had one light day where laying was NOT their priority, but they seem to have pulled through. Those hardy girls.
