We are NOT set up for this kind of weather. I've been carrying 2 buckets of boiling hot water to melt ice in the water buckets for sheep (9 mom's nursing 15 lambs) and the chickens and dogs. The steer and horse tank I've been able to break ice most mornings and afternoons. But had to haul boiling water to them several times because the ice was so thick. Have had 2 ice storms and snowed 3 times for 10" of snow. DH keeps the water boiling on the stove and feeds the bottle lambs while I'm outside caring for the animals. It takes 3 hours twice a day. I'm exhausted. House is a wreck, but I don't care. LOLOh, man, how are you doing? I hope you are not part of the massive power outage. Stay safe.
Giving extra feed and hay. Have fed EIGHTY POUNDS of birdseed and on bag #3. We have been Blessed with no power outage and water pipes have not frozen.
