Recently my sister asked me if I had a source of heat for my dogs and I said those mutts don’t need any heat. If I had a heat pad in the house they would eat it!
I built this nice cozy enclosure for them and put individual houses inside the enclosure. I try to keep the houses filled with cedar shavings, but it keeps disappearing. I see very little of it on the ground so I guess they are eating it!
It’s a good thing I have them fixed up nice and cozy because we are in the middle of a winter storm. This is a picture out of our backdoor and all that white is ice and sleet. The weatherman is predicting 3 inches of sleet before the night is over with more possible on Sunday. Let’s hope he is wrong, but I am prepared as well as I can be. I stocked up on more batteries, fuel, and food on Monday and the stores had plenty. The people who waited until yesterday to buy supplies were out of luck. I had to give part of our preps to some of our totally unprepared relatives. I would have let the adults sit in the dark and cold and suffer, but I took pity on the kids and I wanted them to be warm so I took them a kerosene heater and fuel, so one of my backup sources of heat is unavailable to me. Oh well, I have 3 other backups (firewood, another kerosene heater, a propane heater) so we will be OK. Stay prepared everyone!
