Freeking BRRRRRRR!!!!!

So now that we have destroyed the Jet Stream and wild weather is the new normal, winter has been exciting to say the least.  Wednesday night was 14 below with a 25 below wind chill.  This cold blast wasn’t quite as worrisome as we had a trial run with the chickens during the last one.  I woke up and drove out to check on the birds Thursday.  The pickup wouldn’t start because we didn’t have the block heater plugged in (didn’t know it had one – I hate salespeople!)  The little car read minus 15 on my way out there.  Unbelievably cold and dry.  Nose bleed weather.

I got out to the farm and the chickens greeted me clucking and crowing.  All was well.  Unfortunately, as is common, the eggs were all frozen and cracked.  Sorry folks.  Gotta wait to restock before there are more tasty eggs!  The farmer and his family get first dibs!  LOL!

I also fired up the tractor and plowed out the drifts.  Ready now to settle in for the weekend and continue to plan the planting schedule.

I just talked to DripWorks in California and am ordering the drip irrigation system.  Happily it all looks like it is going to work according to plan!  Now if we can warm up and get to spring!  Kind of getting cabin fever!!
