Hey Stan.... LOL This weather blows....literally!

This IS a nice way to start off the beginning of a new year tho! A two hour delay. DH was a bit nervous for me to go back to work...as he will be home all alone. He's doing fine, and I've left him alone plenty during this break, especially yesterday with the ride and the prepping. I think it's just the thought....

Saw FIL at the grocery store yesterday and asked him to check in. He was happy to oblige. Nurse is to come today too. I told DH that I'll come home soon after schools out....as I tend to stay until 5:00 to finish up work. Now, he can help ME do some work! hahaha He helped me package up the students' Christmas gifts last night!

MR, are you redoing your entire basement? I can't remember....

Well....that's all I about got at this point.....back to work I go!

Good luck w/Frozen Monday everyone. My sister just texted me -17 below (Iowa, Mississippi River valley), she hope's her jeep starts do she can get to work. Relatively "warmer" here, but has been snowing of & on for 4 days & Janice said her out-in-the-boonies roads are nasty...so I'm staying home today (poo will be too frozen to scoop anyway). I have home chores to catch up on anyway, esp cleaning fish tank.

Everyone has beautiful barns! Enjoyed the pics. I like older CW music too, & even more than that the Appalachian folk stuff that I figure is CW roots.

Onward & Upward, I'm Not Done Yet...

TJ, I noticed your avatar right away.

Roaddy, The plastic is only going to be up for the next couple days. It's to warm up here Thursday. Whether it bothers them....we'll find out! I gotta do what I gotta do! No lattice.

As far as the collar...it must be an illusion bc it's very loose. NO rubbing.

TJ...have fun cleaning....NOT!

Tuesday is the worst day...very, very dangerous cold here Monday -Tuesday. Actually sounds like canada weather...with wind chills up,to -30 degrees F.

So tonight we did a little prepping the barn. Here's a pic of my section. We tried to cover things up,so they didn't get so much wind and weather. They way their stalls face, they get little,wind...but being cautious. Looks tacky, but I could feel a difference already. They are bundled up in their blankets too!

Oooo, just got the call...two hour delay tomorrow!! It's currently raining, but to change to freezing rain.

Hahahahaha Canada weather pffft! It was 7 degrees celcius here yesterday lol (of course we ARE the only warm spot in Canada)

Nickers leaving Scott alone for the day when you are at work will do his confidence a world of good but just to stop him worring. Ring him when you get to work and tell him You arrived without insident and casually mention he is doing O/K.

Stay safe every one while the bad weather is going on. It kind of reminds one of the dooms day movie when the big storm hit and the new ice age began.

I had some time with Bugs yesterday and he has calmed down considerably. Even when I was dropping large posts on each other making a loud crack like a gun going off, he did not flinch. Nis nerves seen to have settled.

cheers all

Hmmm, Hunter, have noticed your safe-spot in Canada & mine here seem to have a bit in common. Don't want to tempt a karma "Ha! Take THIS!", so won't do a pfft..!

Got the fish tank cleaned up (one of 2, the little one is ok right now). Ran out to Target to get a vacuum cleaner, which was a purchase long over due (ancient one finally gave up the ghost), then came home & got to catch-up of stuff. Gonna go trim my hair (yes, do it myself; pain-in-the b..t, but can do it well) then........got hair coloring to do. Hope it helps, have not done that in eons.

Hope this awful cold clears out this week. Stan, glad you got a good time w/Bugs, & he seems to be getting settled.

Onward, upward, you'all...!

We are not geared up for the kind of cold they are predicting tonight. We have had to turn off our well pump and drain all the lines. DH spent all day while I was at work bringing in water for us and the pets. I have a defroster thingy that I put in the horse trough. Hopefully it still works.

They are predicting 11 degrees. I thought that it only got that cold in the lowest pits of hades........

Carpe Diem!
