Warmed up.. sure is ice to be in the 30’s and 50’s after being 20 some below for awhile… of course it was a little warmer during the days.. got up a little below zero… I must be getting old, as I can remember when we had 2 weeks or a month of below zero weather years back.. I know you can get used to it… but I don’t care for it.. seems to me any extra hot days in the summer, you will get the same amount of extra cold days in the winter.. it all balances out.. I do know that now is a real good time for a drought and a heat wave!

Power went off yesterday for an hour or two.. lots of frost on the lines..and when that happens they throw a breaker I guess..anyway, when it came back on, one of the tanks for the cattle had been drank down and the water really must gush out, it blows the plug on the float and it is gone.. not sure where they go, but maybe down inside all the muck in the tank.. so Chance had no water last night and he discovered the water had ben running over.. he is at the end of the line… so Sam came up to take a shower before Mass this morning… I called the local hardware/feed shop owner where we got there float and he said he’d get me one this morning, even tho’ it was Sunday… its nice to have local people to deal with, who understand these kinds of things..and help out in emergencies… I think there is going to be a new trend in stores, back to smaller stores with people who will hep you.. I detest going into a store in town and no one to help you… I try to avoid places like that.. I don’t care if they are cheaper
