It is very hard to believe when you step outside that it is January 2016, it is so incredibly mild and beautiful. While a lot of folk are reveling in these unseasonable conditions I cannot be so joyful. These weather patterns are against the normal, and that is a very worrying trend. Here in Manitoba we are much warmer than we should be, this has a detrimental effect on those who depend on that normal cycle of seasons and weather patterns to survive. I think about the animals and the flora and fauna that will struggle with these changes, we can adapt but they cannot. Spare a thought for them.
My chickens, ducks and turkeys have been enjoying the warmth, usually locked up snug in their sheds they have been able to venture out and enjoy the snow!
