I have a little space heater aimed at my feetsies, too, right now... (there doesn't seem to be *any* heat under this desk!!)
-60...wow....can't wrap my brain around that one!
The sun is doing its job this morning....thank GAWD!
My gloves froze to the pitchfork this morning! UGH! And there was quite a mess to clean up, because...obviously...the buckies spent the night inside.
With the windchill, it was like -20 this morning. BRRRRRR!
I have a chiro appointment this afternoon. This sinus infection is really dragging me down. (So...we're going to fix *that*!) Heheheh

It's not supposed to be this cold, this far south!!!!!! I'm in freeking ARKANSAS for cryin' out loud!!! :roll:

It was a lovely 4 degrees this morning, Brrrrrr... We have climbed to a balmy 21.5 ( I just checked the thermometer )

I have the heater on and the wood stove cranking too.


My only smile comes from not having to go do chores. I can handle the 5 minutes it takes to feed and water the chickens!!!!

I don't have to bust the ice out of the water tanks, throw hay, or waddle around like the kid in "a christmas story" to weigh out the grain and fuss with frozen gates!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

All of our area schools closed today because of the cold.
I know I wouldn't want any of mine out there waiting for a bus!

So I punched out at 2pm... it is now 2:44pm and im still at work....

My truck is as dead as dead can be. It is -11 with -21 windchill. We tried jumping it and left the thing on for like 10-15 minutes and it wont even slightly turn over (I had spark but the other car was a lot smaller). So I called the BF and he is on his way. I will let Mr. Fix-it show me how its done...lol

I think it is the original battery (it is an 02) but we couldnt find a date stamp on it. So I think I will be getting a new battery. More money spending

Oye! That is my worst fear, being some place and not having my car start. Yesterday when I went into work, my windshield wipers didnt work. lol. Darn things.

My car really didnt want to start this afternoon when I went out and tried it. I did get her to turn over tho. This cold weather really sucks, but living in MN, what can we expect, right?

Ya I did it to myself. I park in the garage so it was 11 in there this morning. But before I left I was like "I sure hope my truck starts after work"

Sure enough it didnt!!!!

Ugh.... That stinks. I used to buy a new battery every 2 years no matter what when I lived in Iowa. (lol... I always sold the old one to my BIL and my sister ended up calling me for a ride :roll: Karma was working in there somewhere I know it!!!! )

my back porch:


Yeaaa, I didn't go to school today.
I do, however, have to go feed 35 horses in this freezing weather.
I bought one of those carhart jumpsuits, and I might look like an idiot in that thing but at least I'm warm.
