Hatch’s are battened!

Looks like tomorrow at this time we should have 5 or 6 inches of snow and winds picking up tonight and gusting into the 40’s by tomorrow…whee, can you say blizzard boys and girls? šŸ™‚

Delbert and Clint came over and put my tractor tire chains on. Obviously they have had more practice than me cuz’ they went about it in a much more efficient manner and I didn’t even hardly get to help. I drove forward and backward and we got another link shortened up. Then this late afternoon I went out and dug the bottom of the floor in the shed now, so the tractor just barely squeeks under the door. I hauled the extra gravel up and put it over Hope and Chance’s exposed phone line where people will park and while I was at it I smoothed out their gravel pile a bit so it will be better after the storm. Probably in the spring we will have to do more and will probably have to add more gravel anyway…

Then I went and fed the cows an extra bale in case it gets real tuff in the morning.Got another link in the chains shorter also…

Moved Chances trailer out of the way of causing any more of a drift and also mine. Got my pickup backed in so I can get out afterwords in case of an emergency…now, seeing as I got a couple new movies in, I will take them up and make Hope feed me and we will watch movies. By the way Hope and Chances last digits in their phone is 5415, same as they had before when they lived out here…

I guess I am prepared as best I can be. Chance should come rolling in later so he will be here to help with the feeding and aftermath. Heck, I might just sleep in and tell him to handle it! šŸ™‚

  1. Sounds like with that blizzard coming that you got your new tractor just in time to help move the snow. (That cab on the tractor will be so nice in that wind.) Stay safe and take care.
