Well, we managed to survive the winter storm without much damage but it could have been a major headache.
That is not snow on the steps, that is sleet and freezing rain. The roads looked the same for 3 days making driving very hazardous.
The ice started melting today and it made some real “widow maker” icicles hang off of the roofs. Those things are 2 feet long and an inch and a half in diameter. That could give you a real headache if one came down on your head!
It has been so cold I put a heated water bowl in the dogs pen. I bought it last Spring when it was on clearance at Tractor Supply. I got ready to plug it in and turned it over and saw this thin spring wire wrapped around the cord to protect it from being chewed. That gave me a real laugh, they don’t know my dogs, they could chew up a steel plate! They would eat this cord for dessert if they take a mind to. Maybe they will leave it alone long enough to get through the winter. Keep prepping everyone!
