Okay, so I am browsing the forum, and the wind is just POUNDING my house right now. It is soooo freaky! I have picked up my trash cans a few times, keep finding random things out of place, and have NO desire to go outside. The wind makes the 10 below equiv. to about 45 below I guess....very cold on the skin! We have many construction supplies under one of those big white outdoor tents (some people park cars under them or use them for hay or other things...well, it has been ripped up a bit, and I had to try to tie it down because it is threatening to blow away. The horses keep running out of the barns all freaked out when they hear the wind bang around.
My farrier is supposed to come out tomorrow...I am wondering how much he is going to enjoy that! Maybe we can work in a stall or the tack shed or something. :)
Those of you talking about being sick...try taking emergen -C ....I swear by it. When I feel a cold coming on, I start downing the stuff big time, and it often nips whatever it is right away. I feel a twinge in the back of my throat on one side...I am drinking emergen-C like crazy already. I have made it through the school year with a few beginning colds, but they never got full out. Cross fingers it will be the same this time...I probably only became susceptible when I got all stressed about that stupid video I had to take of myself!
:) Well, going to curl up on the couch under blankies...nothing better to do with hubbie working nights again this week and the icy wind outside. :)
