Heavy rain in the night. Today cold & cloudy, with heavy showers & violent wind.
What a feast!
“a violent wind”
That sounds pretty grim. I hope the poor chickens survive the storm. Did George remember to batten down the hatches?
I can hardly wait for tomorrow’s news.
“Today cold & cloudy, with heavy showers & violent wind.”
70 years passed by, but the weather’s like the same here today.
That’s “batten down the ‘hutches’ “. He’s got chicken hutches, not hatches. If he’s got hatches, then he must have a rooster and not getting his morning poached eggs, right?
The three eggs, the dark, the storm, and a violent wind–could the Thane of Cawdor be far behind?
Actually, I think it’s rabbits that live in hutches…I don’t know if GO would use the same word we Yanks do, but here chickens live in coops (not to be confused with co-ops).
The three eggs cannot
Shake the foreboding caused by
This heavy weather
Now three and closer to the Trinity. Huevos rancheros or revueltos?
I would make myself an omelet. actually I have a dozen eggs in my kitchen. I think I am going to make an omelet.
I think the English word is usually “Hen House”.
The violent wind could be due to overdosing on egg sandwiches
Not to escalate the hatch/hutch/hen-house controversy, but hen-house is certainly the best bet if we take the first line of Animal Farm:
“Mr Jones, of the Manor Farm, had locked the hen-houses for the night, but was too drunk to remember to shut the pop-holes.”
So, I hope he battened down the pop-holes!
Within the Hen House and/or Chicken Coop the hens, in rotating shifts, stoically stand guard over the pop-hole, prepared to peck a snarling jackal’s nose.
Happy New Year!
It’s interesting to me in Los Angeles that the weather here is tracking almost perfectly with the weather there day for day. Heavy dew, big rain. No big wind, though.
You can’t beat a good North Atlantic weather system, even by 70 years.
