Brrrrr !!!

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Homer » Sun Dec 18, 2016 8:04 am


We thought it was cold around here Saturday. Had about 3" of sugar powder snow and a high of 9*f. Packed wood to the shop, fed and watered the ducks and made them go into their house for the night with a heat lamp on.

Woke up about 12:30 AM so went out and put wood on the fire and it was -11f. Came in and went back to bed until one of our cats woke me trying to get under the covers. That was 4:30 AM and that never happens. :| More wood on the fire and by the time I walked back to the house my face burned. Then I saw why. :x ...and it will still get colder and dawn. :cry:

Yikes!!

Hope it warms up, I know it's supposed to here, though I think we're better sheltered at the base of the mountains than you way out on the plains.

Keep warm!!

Phew, that's really cold. I actually envy you :D

We would need that temperatures here for a week, to decimate these spanish slugs that cover everything after a mild winter, but it's not likely to happen any more, also the times are gone when, as a child, I climbed on the roof and jumped in the snow drifts, some 6ft high. Only very little snow the last decades, and not cold enough.

On the positive side, my heating for the water crocks (outside) works to at least to -6°C, don't have to care much about frozen water the whole winter. But gathering forage in spring gets somewhat icky, with about 500 slugs per square meter...

Went through a wheel barrow and a half of wood last night keeping the shop within reason. ~55f They say it's going to get up to 23 today but we've been lied to before. :o It's still -15 out now.

Preitler, I'd be glad to send this crap your way. It's not even officially winter until Dec21. I'd take the slugs over this nonsense any day!

Still -5 here. Just brought in another wheel barrow full of wood to keep everybunny warm while I get to clean hutches. ;) What part of the country you in Harelady?

sigh and i'm over here in texas rejoicing that it's finally in the 30s.... it's been highs of 77F every day for the past month! i think we got maybe two days of cold weather before now, but it's going to be back up in the 60s by wednesday according to the weather app on my phone :( no hope of a cold christmas again this year it seems.

bunnies seem to be enjoying the mild temps though. they're so frisky!

You may be on your own there Homer, I'll take a month of freezing temps over that heavy of a slug infestation any day. There'd be no hope of a food garden with those around...

Yikes, Homer! It was in the high 20's here last night (no idea how cold it got in the wee hours, though) and that was bad enough for me!

Preitler, slugs love beer- so much so that they will "drowned themselves in drink" if you put some out in a container deep enough for them to do so- you might need to use up a keg or two before you make a dent in your population, though!

She likes to stay kind of low key. Lets just say she lives between you and I.

I know your organic with your job but...Have you ever heard the saying, "better living through chemistry"? It came from the 60s hippie culture if you know what I mean.

As much info as you can find on the web these days I'm starting to wonder if there is such a thing as low key anymore...

I'm in Canon City. We have our own little micro-climate usually, with low temps at night and warm days this time of year. (Started out at -9*f yesterday and was up to 38 during the day, back to -9 this morning.) I don't mind the temps, but sadly snow is few and far between here. Just got out first real snow this weekend. Last time it snowed it was barely an inch and it hung around for all of an hour or two.

Homer.... I am officially shut up regarding the cold after reading your night.... lol

I havn't had heat in my truck in a week.... but I should shut up about that too... cause I've heard stories of folks who have had power steering lines and break lines freeze....

I'm in southern Ontario and we are surrounded by the great lakes.. so 21F this morning and we had freezing rain on Saturday... We just have to wait a couple of days and the weather will change around here.... (not always for the best)
