Coming Down

Dec

With the rains the last couple days, I’ve had two power outages this weekend. Now we’ve got snow coming down this morning.

    It’s already switched to rain here. At least we had a day of no rain to let the rivers recover a bit. The Coal was at 23 feet here in Tornado yesterday and backwater had covered several roads, but has now dropped back to 13.

    We had snow 2 days ago and the temp has dropped to 21 and last night it dropped further, it was 21 by the time I went to bed at 9pm. Absolutely beautiful photo.

    Get ready for the ice storm! Here in SF Bay Area, CA we are thinking of you in the East Coast, and we are having our own little cold snap……. OK, so we are wimps, but you don’t want those grapes to freeze, do you! :bugeyed:

    3 degrees in the eastern part of WA state. Windchill of -12. Just a skiff of snow.
    Dog gets bundled up when she goes outside, and she stays home when I need to get out. She does not like that, used to traveling with me.
    This is just the onset of winter. Real snow due tonight and for a few days. I am a ‘survivalist’, so have a good stockpile of foods and emergency items in case the power goes out. So, in that respect at least, I can relate.
    So glad I do not have to get out to milk the cow and feed the livestock. I sincerely admire your lifestyle. You seized the opportunity and are enjoying your life. Atta girl.

    Ok here’s the plan. We gotta build you a covered bridge to the barn. Something that won’t get wet when the creek floods. And some solar panels! Stay warm! Looking forward to my calendar:)

    Snow is beautiful to look at, but it creates such hardships. Where I live in Georgia , when it snows, everything shuts down because most of us do not know how to drive in it. So, I pray that it stays away. Thank you for the pics of your wonderful farm!! :snowman: :snowman:

    Maybe I’m a bit dense. . I understand power outages in snow and in ice bit I don’t understand power outages b/c of rain. Must be a southern (?) mountain (?) thing. Great pix, tho. Glad you’ve mastered the generator. It’s as if it were January here, pretty snow* and unseasonably cold. * pretty ’cause it just fell, by tomorrow it will be ugly grey

    Bonita usually power failures due to rain are because water has gotten into the electrical circuits and blown them. Of course lightening strikes cause the major outages. Suzanne is there any ways you can build either a hoop tunnel or create a snowfence tunnel from the house to the barn?

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
