LOL. Fortunately, I don't have to resort to hauling water in the winter time unless I forget to drain the hose. We have a freeze-proof faucet and so long as I drain all the water out of the hose after watering the horses, it's fine the next day. Though I do get a little sick of having to carry the axe around to chop up the ice. I am always afraid that I am going to chop a hole in the side of the tank. As for snow, we very seldom see any down here and when we do, it only lasts a couple of days before it's melted. I would have rathered we didn't get that 3 inches of rain the other night though, it made everything all soupy and slick.
