BRRRRRRRR…. it’s cold outside!

Posted on

Lovely early Monday morning for those of you in the US!  

I got the kids up this morning and found out some of the local schools are closed due to the temps it is 15 F outside right now which is about -15 C   I imagine those schools are having either heating issues or had pipes burst, as my kids still have school, they aren’t happy about it; but that is life.  I remember the one time I figured I’d get off of school when I was in middle school, we had; had thunder snow the night before.  When we discovered we still had school the next day I found out that the snow was up to my hips.

I’m just kinda amazed that the schools are open today as 2 winters ago they closed school when we had about 4 inches of snow on our car bumper.  I just hope they stay warm enough, they all have nice coats for cold.  My son is just the type that thinks 40’s is good shorts and no coat weather.

I had to take the chickens some boiling water this morning to thaw their water and I will probably have to do it again in a couple of hours.  I’m trying them out on wild bird seed at this moment as we ran out of chicken feed on a day that the feed store was closed.  I’ll let you knwo if I notice any changes in their egg production.  I am planning on eventually to do my own animal feed.  It might start this year as I’m going to try growing Amaranth this year and if we get a good crop of it I’m going to try it on the chickens first.


For all of you in the North… Stay warm!  ..and those in the south stay cool!


Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…
