I was terrified, I am not good on ice, I was praying for a window to get to town all week, I drove 30 miles an hour....

I thought we were only gonna have a week of polar, then freaking another week of sub polar....Went to feed store all brooder light fixtures gone, I have some just was gonna get extra, and then at the Walmart, an entire freezer of milk gone....it was jammed....

Feeding hundreds of wild birds, cardinals, blue jays, eastern meadowlarks with lemon colored breast, the simple brown doves, a few red headed wood peckers, sparrows, lots of little black ones, starlings?

Chickens have a warm barn, but goaty and piggy are in a plain big metal barn with heat lamps, gonna have to wrap them in feather down quilts, old ones....they like bales of hay and make big hay beds....

But goaty is a kashmir long haired goat and he was shivering this morning, so got 4 extra bales of hay for a hay castle...

It is usually low of thirty but it was like 15 this morning....I am wrapped up like a penguin...brrr cold......

Hay is a good heat insulator.

Be careful of using any heaters around hay.

Do you have neighbor friends ?

Thanks for sharing!

It's going to get down to 9 degrees here in San Antonio by Monday morning. First time I have ever insulated the outside faucets. Stay warm and safe folks.


It's going to snow. Nice.

Yeah, wrap them in that foil fiberglass insulation. Be sure to let them drip.. no burst pipes.

Dr. Balasaheb Sawant Konkan Krishi Vidypeeth
Most liquids have a quite simple behavior when they are cooled (at a fixed pressure): they shrink. The liquid contract as it is cooled; because the molecules are moving slower they are less able to overcome the attractive inter-molecular forces drawing them closer to each other. Then the freezing temperature is reached, and the substance solidifies, which causes it to contract some more because crystalline solids are usually tightly packed. Water is one of the few exceptions to this behavior. When liquid water is cooled, it contracts like one would expect until a temperature of approximately 4 degrees Celsius is reached. After that, it expands slightly until it reaches the freezing point, and then when it freezes it expands by approximately 9%. This unusual behavior has its origin in the structure of the water molecule. There is a strong tendency to form a network of hydrogen bonds, where each hydrogen atom is in a line between two oxygen atoms. This hydrogen bonding tendency gets stronger as the temperature gets lower (because there is less thermal energy to shake the hydrogen bonds out of position). The ice structure is completely hydrogen bonded, and these bonds force the crystalline structure to be very "open"

You folks in the line of freezing- Be well, be warm.

Our Pac NW sugar frosting of snow is nothing to worry about. Bit chilly is all.
The wind will be kicking up and more snow the next couple days, but maybe 4 inches total.

My weather for the Southern Sacramento's is Sunday +2 with up to 12 inches of snow.

Wife is going to make some homemade deer/elk meat chili and a separate pot of pinto beans.

YUMMY for cold weather!
