Glad to hear that the wiring is about to commence! You'll be open for business before you know it!

I still have to dig & lay the main service line and not sure when I'll get to that job.

To help ensure my day off tomorrow with it dropping not far from zero F, I put a charger on the MF1100 on the silage wagon, and plugged the block heater full time instead of on the timer.  The loader only has to start in the afternoons during cold weather as we can load morning feed the night before.  So I moved the loaders block heater timer to noon.  It's a high watt tank heater, so 3 or 4 hours in any weather will heat it up.  The loader also has a small battery charger in the battery compartment also hooked to the timer.  SURELY I will get to sleep in......I hope!

That is the part I hated when I did my shop. Working over my head on a ladder running and connecting wire. Not that I don't like to do electrical I just don't like working on a ladder and over my head like that.


I put up 3 new lights for my side job today and I felt like my neck was broke after I was done. I've always had a hard time working above my head. Doing drywall work above my head kills me.

We can get 2 inches snow tonight, and another 7" tomorrow!   Rare we get that much, but it remains to be seen if we will.

Teresa's Mom is back in the hospital with an apparent blood clot in a lung.  Going to hospital in a bit.  She's doing good now that she's on oxygen.  I think if they can get this cleared out, then she will begin to finally recover.  Been a rough road for her.  My clots didn't hit me like they have her, but then I am several years younger & lots more stubborn than her. She will have to be more active though, as I feel her not wanting to get up & move around contributed to her clot.

WOW....depending on which forecast system, we can get anywhere from 7 to 12" of snow.  One weather predictor shows up to 16" !!

 

  And I was going to go get a trailer load of hay tomorrow morning for our weaned calves.  I think we have a couple bales left, so that will only last 2 to 3 days.

When I had my blood clots I had sever pain in my left shoulder and back to the point I could hardly move.  The blood clots didn't show until they did some kind of Chatterer through the leg and then only when they had me turn a certain way.

Well looking at the weather map, you just might get that much if it stays in line over top of you. I hope not, but I am glad its not me, I still have 12 to 14 still on the ground. I'm ready for summer!

Finally some solid news on my Mom-in-Law's health.  My lung Dr came in while Teresa & I visited her Mom at the hospital.  He did all but rule out a lung clot.  They will still scan for blood clots tomorrow when special non-allergenic dye arrives.  But the Dr said for SURE she has pneumonia in one lung.  He could plainly see it in chest X-rays.  She looks better than she has since her surgery about 3 weeks ago.  She is eating some now, and when we came in her room it was like looking at a whole different person from who we've seen the last 3 weeks.  She was chatty as could be, and even smiled!  Not seen her smile period since this all began.  She's also no longer in pain, and her sick stomach has calmed finally.  She even said she wanted to be in good spirits & ready for the next UK basketball game!  She is on the road to mending now.   :thumbs:
