Last night when we went to bed,
it was -9 & -23 with windchill!
It is so cold that the water is freezing on the rocks.
Then as more water flows,
it flows over the ice and freezes even more.
This is the same corner from up river.
When I make soap,
I do the lye water outside
because it is caustic & can get up to 200 degrees.
I carried it in the house with my bare hands.
It was like holding a cup of hot coffee,
but there was no 200 degrees.
Now it's Mama Hen time.
If you have to travel - even just to work or the store,
carry a few things with you, please.
It might sound like a lot,
but I just pulled a fella out of a ditch
Friday on my way home.
My tow rope is always in my rig,
but it was out for some reason.
What saved the day was
that the fella had one with him.
I will have another gift idea for you
here within the next couple days,
but wanted to encourage you all
to keep safe and warm.
PS - What's up with naming storms? We used to have one name
for all the storms - Winter:)
Until next time,
