Rick has been checking on the animals to make sure they have plenty of feed so they have enough calories to help keep them warm,and bedding. The sheep are pretty resilient,but the chickens are always more of a concern. Their house is closed up right now. He also has been taking the dogs out to do their business,and has been doing snow removal. Zach has been helping as well. Rick won't let me go outside to help because of the cold-he is like that.
I just took this photo a few minutes ago,and it looks like no shoveling has been done,but it was shoveled three times yesterday:
Looks like my car is in a bit of a drift! I took this through our bedroom window:
Our furnace still has not been installed,so we have been feeding the wood stove quite a bit. Overnight,however,it had a bit of a rest,so when Rick woke up the house was down to 53 degrees. It's slowly warming up,and right now it's 58 degrees.
It's a good day to read "The Long Winter!"
If you are having cold temperatures,stay warm!!!
