Heavy snow in the night & during a good deal of the day. Nasty slushy snow which will not lie long, but makes everything very nasty. Impossible to do anything out of doors.
Began water-glassing some eggs, experimentally. It appears you should use eggs 5-12 hours old, as if they have been laid a day or two it takes several months off the time they will stay good. Put 20-30 older eggs (laid about 6 days) in a glass jar, & these can be used first. Am using a large enameled pan for newer eggs, & shall put in none more that 24 hours old.
