Yet another winter snow storm

Santa and his reindeer should have no problem delivering presents Christmas Eve here in Northern Michigan. We have about 2 & 1/2 feet of snow on the ground, and it is still snowing. Doing chores in this weather can be trying. Gary & I go outside no matter what the weather, to take care of them.  We find things like this poor chicken that we rescued from being buried alive in the snow.
I think she was rather happy to see us.
Our Maremma Sheepdogs have two coats of fur and do really well in the snowstorms. They all have dog houses to cuddle up in and stay warm. This pic is Meadows condo.
The next pic is of Meadow trying to catch a mouse under the snow.
The snow has piled up against the girls fence. We will have to try and move the fence feeders. 
As you can see, the Alpacas fiber keeps them warm and dry underneath all of the snow.
I also wear my Alpaca's fiber to protect me from the winter elements. I spun and knitted this ski mask from Thumper's fiber. 
Well tomorrow will be another day of "digging out" of the snow. N. MI is truly a winter wonderland.
