Batten Down the Hatches

We're all sitting tight in a pretty serious winter storm, and like the rest of the folks in our area, spent the last day or two getting ready for it.

With the prospect of some pretty serious drifts developing, we made sure that we brought enough feed to the barn to last a few days.

We made lamb jackets for a set of small triplets, knowing that it will be very cold. We make our lamb jackets by cutting off the last 6-8" of the sleeves of old sweatshirts. I'll try to get a photo after snowmageddon blows itself out.

We tested the generator to make sure it runs well, in case it's needed.

And I bought a cart full of groceries this morning. I suspect I've got enough food laid up to sustain the whole neighborhood for 2-3 months.

In other news, the last daughter home helped me to build a graph showing the lamb crop so far this year. It's at the top of the left sidebar (for as long as this lambing season lasts). I'll try to update it every day or two.

Stay warm and safe!
