I was wondering to whom I would address a global warming request this morning. It seems the Gadberry area was excluded!

Pictures taken January 13, which was indeed a snow day! Charles Marshburn- Charles Marshbur

Thanks, Charles Marshburn, you have come to the right place. Glad to help. We are well versed on the subject, don't even have to ask the Inventor of the Internet. What you are observing and will understand as you begin to settle in, is not a political statement, just the common Mt. McKinley -Siberian weather patterns high on Butterp'int Ridge/Gadberry/High Fairplay Folks who've lived here since the time of John the Baptist know that ski conditions are better every winter where you live, and on the Antioch Plateau, than anywhere else in Adair County. Thanks for the gorgeous pictures. -EW

Through the snow haze, it's hard to tell their breed, but the farm is famous for its flock of rare - at least in Gadberry - flock of Silkies. Update. They are not chickens at all, as Charles Marshburn just added, "Those are my wife's guinea fowl, Ed. They hunker down beneath the Silverado!"
