Surviving a Michigan Snow Storm
The local weather channels have been warning us of an impending snow storm and arctic winds blowing in for a few days. There was a pretty significant ice storm just before the Christmas holiday that reminded us the dangers weather presents living in the North.

The grocery store shelves are empty, but we were able to stock up on the essentials and extra water, batteries and chicken supplies of straw, bedding, electrolytes and feed. This article is to tell you how we prepare for the snow and cold with our small backyard flock.
