Easy Life

Tomorrow night is supposed to bring us an Arctic blast of frigid air, with highs in the single digits and snow.

I tried to accomplish some preparations before it hits.

I split a couple of loads of firewood for the wood stove should the electricity go out!

That wasn’t hard!

I pulled into the corral, dropped a couple of strings… and it dumped onto the ground!

  1. Hi Carol,
    Our temps are suppose to drop too. Single digits. I know you will get more snow. I will keep you and yours in my prayers. Sewed a fleece blanket to the underside of horse blanket to put on older mare. This won’t be fun.
