For the last two days i have been getting ready for the arctic blast of cold that was coming. I put new bedding in the goat barns. Then I made sure that water tank heaters were working. made sure that the extension cords were up off the ground. i do this so the cords don't freeze to the ground. don't short out when the snow melts and the plugs don't rust. making sure the cords are out of the reach of the goats is a challenge. set up the hay feeders and repaired some. then filled with hay. the wind and snow hit before i got the hay fed boy was it cold. this morning the wind has died down and the sun is out I hate seeing the sun after a blizzard the temp is 2F i am afraid it is going to be a long winter.
