I'll just put it this way, when that dead animal truck comes, it's nearly full. Normal weather and it's usually just got a few animals in it.
Shut the welder off, as it's apparent it's not gonna thaw the rest of the line. Could be weeks on end before it thaws with the weather as it is.
I have spread about 8 tons of gravel for a traction aid on this frozen icy ground, but one spot I hadn't yet, and when I fed silage, I spun out, then it started sliding backwards. I got the brakes to work enough to get the wagon to go up against the bank on it's upper side, then made a dash & got on up. I got the payloader & cut down to dirt & rock, then spread gravel there as well. I bedded all the stalls myself today, and put out rolled hay, as Josh spent most of the day at home. I didn't mind too much, as his wife & all the kids were home today to spend quality time with. Just wore me out, but I have everything done that needed taken care of, and it's the end of my day early. Good thing too, as my butt is dragging. Just in the 20's, but working in heavy clothes in the cold sure pulls the energy out of ya.
