Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

+When It's Really Cold

Shovel off the burn pile and light it up. At our temperatures, a quart of gasoline really helps.

 Let get good and hot.
 Invite the neighbour's dog, Copper, over to play. Actually, forget the invite. He just seems to appear once I start doing anything outside.
 Pull up a log, sit down and enjoy the warmth. Be prepared to progressively back up as the heat rises.
 Watch out that your backside doesn't overheat.
Two more piles to go, and the winter burning is done!

Yes, we have some of those piles.

We didn't have enough snow last year. We are still clearing from tornado and ice storm of three years ago. We're slow but steady.

Ha! That's exactly what we were talking about doing if we do ever get snow, if this storm comes for us. Great pictures. Brrr it's cold! We are not going much below zero here if at all.
