It's a winter day here. After all this unseasonable heat , rain and humidity I'm glad to see this weather.
Started snowing last night, on and off, but just showers. The air is so dry none of my humidity gauges will register. They all stop at 20 %. The temperature got down to 19 last night but has warmed up to the point that it's 23 right now.
I've been out twice to run some water in the outbuildings and check on everything there. The power is staying on, for the moment, so there shouldn't be any real trouble in keeping on top of things. If the power goes out, I have to switch to backup heat sources. Not a problem in the house, where the heating system is independent of the grid. Same in the apartment. But I have to go to a kerosene heater in a couple of other places and that's a pain. Especially when you have to go out in sleet at two in the morning to refill the tanks. Beats busted pipes, though.
Clearly I am not going to be going into town today. I'd given some consideration to going in and looking at the magazines, and maybe having lunch in town.
But then I remembered it was Sunday. The whole church crowd hits the cafe I like , after church. Too big a mob for me.
In this weather, getting in and out of the homestead would be difficult. I have everything I need here already so I think I'll just stay home today.
|Gary, you have a lot of people in your camp.|
|Martha, from my ferrets to yours. Dook on!|
|Six Bears, you have good taste in guns.|
You have to have cartoons on Sunday, even if there's no Sunday Paper here. Thanks for the help from friends who want to maintain a low profile. Staying off the sky line makes sense, and I appreciate their time and efforts.
