Winter Storm

9 Dec

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!

    Glad you survived the storm. We got little ice or snow up here but all the damnable cold. Suppose to get down to 8 tonight.
