No Work And All Play
This one is a bad one. I was told not to come back to work till Friday. The problem with that is there is nothing to do except look out the window.
Right now with the wind chill it feels like it's below zero. I have a couple of people that live down the street that have busted pipes and no water. Being a good neighbor and having the only 4x4 on the block I have made trips into town to get them repair parts.
As far as the animals go, even though we did some massive prep work for this storm we are not fairing well. One of the baby goats is in the house next to the fire. We found her legs up in the shelter so we are trying to bring her back. All the rest of them are doing fine for now.
Some of the chickens are missing and we have searched and searched but cannot find them. We locked them up last night and kept them on lock down during the day and just worried some did not make it in. It was dark when we shut the door so they might have been missed. Maybe they were just hunkered down real good and we missed them.
I am going on a search and find mission in the morning with my buddy Dave to find more wood. As it is right now we have enough wood to last till a little after noon tomorrow. I guess I should have worried more about that than building chicken coops this weekend.
Try and stay warm.
