That looks COLD, and the ice is not something anyone but a nature photographer wants to see.  Hope you get a break in the weather soon.

Sure hope it warms up, up there soon.  It is in the 50's today and not bad here, but I think this is only temporary.  I think we have a couple of days next week the temps are supposed to drop. :wallbanging:

It's made it to 32F and some thawing going on where the sun hits.  But it's dripping off the roof onto my back step and re-freezing.  I almost slipped off it coming in the house just now.  Got lots of cleaning done so far down in the shop.  Going to move a ton of stuff out of there & up into the old milk parlor to store.  It needs to be a shop, not a warehouse.

Got an early start milking & all went smoothly.  Got to the house before it was dark!  Sun was down, but still plenty light when I got up here.  I LOVE the longer daylight at the end of the day.  Can't wait for the time change!   :dancingbanana:

Man, does that ever lift your spirits! Coming home from work and seeing the house in daylight. Today we called it good enough for a week and I was at home by five. Usually dark a while before I get home.

Was out of de-icing salt, so just used table salt on the step....worked great!   

 

Today was a more or less laid back one.  Went to TSC, Kroger, then back home.  I cleaned out the heat chamber & heat exchanger on the shop's waste oil heater.  Not as dirty as I had figured, but it does put out a lot more heat.  Then I swept the floor where I had sawdust soaking up oil spills, pulled a leaky tube from a GT tire, then came back in the house.  Still kind of bored, but best to take it easier while I can.

I don't blame you for taking it easy. You've been in it up to your neck for a while now. Just chill and build some strength.

Josh found another milk parlor hot water line leak yesterday.  He waited a bit late to really get into it, then made an error.  I just kind of laid back & let him handle it.  If he can't take care of a easy to get to water leak, then I'm never gonna be able to leave this place overnight.  Well, he got it fixed late last night.  It was too late for him to get to any place before closing, so he had his wife Teri pick up what he needed.  All was ready for me to milk when I got down there.  I had no idea what to expect.  I've made the same mistake Dad did with me concerning the financials & a couple other things, but in my case with Josh, I just fix most things without involving him.  Time to let him start learning to do things himself, and he did good.  

  Anyway, easy milking this morning, then as I was almost done, we started getting some snow.
