Do you have livestock out in the fields?
Just one cow. It doesn't seem to bother her. She hardly even goes in the barn.
I did throw out some alfalfa and range cubes, for more calories to burn than her normal blue stem.

We can't win here. Every day or two, wintry mix of sleet, freezing rain, and / or snow. Just enough to make a slippery mess, barely melts off before the next batch hits, which is tomorrow evening through Friday morning. At least I'm not in Dallas area of Texas. Four degrees last night, 4 million without power; electric plants are down due to coal piles, wind turbines, and natural gas pumps freezing solid. Pipes bursting everywhere. News said coldest they've seen in 45 years.
They couldn't take that down here either. At home the well (or city water if you have that) pipes come in underground into a heated cellar and with a well the pressure tank is in the cellar. Down here everything is outdoors and exposed. There is city water here and nights that are below freezing we drip the water to keep it from freezing but if it got down that low it would freeze.

I heard about the windmills freezing up and shutting the power grid down because people need heat and the grid was less than full power. Guess that's all of the green screw deal.

Tough old bird set in her ways. You have to like it.

We had a beautiful day yesterday. 60* and sunny. I had almost forgotten what sunshine was. And, I sold a gun.
Good day.

Pitchers and catchers reported today so I changed to my summer Avatar.

On a sad note I just saw Rush passed away. He was one of the great ones. RIP Rush.

SOLD a gun! OMG! :LOL: I should talk, I'm (we) down to just 9s and 22s for pistols and our shotguns and a couple of hunting / protection rifles. I don't hunt much any more but I think I'm covered from Squirrels to Griz.

Heard about Rush early yesterday, it was like a kick in the gut even though we knew it was coming. I was just talking with my brother on what the future ramifications will when he is gone, he had such a big impact. Those that actually "listened" to him understood him, those that just heard his comments and not the explanations did not. Most on the Left chose not to pay attention. I first heard him while hunting when Bush the elder was running for Pres but could not listen while at work.
Nobody can really fill his shoes so it will be interesting to see what becomes of his radio show.

You all have a great day!

Freezing rain with some snow off and on since about 2 AM. Supposed to stop about noon tomorrow. I've used some vacation time to dodge most of it.

Good....glub, glub......morning.
When we got here in Nov had about 2 weeks of good weather and since then if it's warm it's raining and if it's sunny it's cold. Looks like next week may improve finally.

We're supposed to get over freezing today, for the first time in eight days.

We have been getting steady rain here and the rain Gads are going to dump the next two days so that should clear the last of the snow. Might even cool the protesters protesting last weeks two (very justified) police shootings.

Have a great, and hopefully dry day folks!

Good morning folks! Well, our local "news" has found something new to complain about, Auto Insurance. It's based on driving record of course but also age, ZIP Code but also credit score. Now I do have an issue with the last but I'm sure the others directly correlate to numbers of accidents, BUT! We here it the great State of Washington have deemed this RACIST! Because people of color live in those high accident zips, have poor credit and must be young!

Have a great day folks!

Looks like it will be a great week here after today. Few showers today then mid-60's -mid-70's the rest of the week. Thursday is freedom day for us. It will be 2 weeks after the 2nd shot and whatever immunity we have, is what we will get. My first order of business is a haircut. Got it done in Mid-Nov before we left and once we got into the vaccine system I let it go and it is really bugging me. Then we go out and really eat in a restaurant. First time since last March. Everything else has been take out.

Good morning folks! Rain here again but backing off tomorrow. It's a good thing because the furnace guy is finally coming to run his leak test. I find it interesting that it was OK to top off the pressure when it was under warranty but now a test is mandatory, might be a coincidence, but.
Had a 4 legged visitor last night, snacked on the wife's bird feeders then munched on the lawn for quite a while. Got to get a better night vision camera, cute little guy!
Hope you all have a great day!

Sounds good and warm. The last of our weekend ice has almost melted. We're supposed to be 50 tomorrow and 60 Wednesday. 42 today.

Looked out this morning and my heat pump was bouncing a little bit and making noise. Coils were frosted, which is normal, so I figured it was maybe ice on the fan making it out of balance. Turned it off and did some Google. Said to leave it off a few minutes, and switch on Cool. That reverses the flow and thaws everything. Worked great. Fan was quiet, and coils were black in about two minutes. Once it shut off I went back to heat. It also said pumps have an auto - defrost cycle that should do it, but sometimes is slow to a sudden change. In my case a drizzle went to heavy rain in nothing flat.
