All schools cancelled in our area.

It is COLD! It's -25 with -55 degree wind chills here. Schools were cancelled for tomorrow already by this afternoon. Boy I can't wait until the warmer weather blows in. 28 is going to feel like a heat wave next week! I just got in from the shed and getting the wood stove nice and hot for the babies and on my way back to the house my nostrils stuck together. Reminded me of the good ol days when we would walk a mile or so to school LOL Poor Max couldn't walk...his poor feet were sticking to the ground LOL He sure didn't go far to potty. Cubby has so much fur he doesn't even bat an eye when he goes out side in this stuff. I just hope my hens in the big coop are ok tonight. They have two heat lamps out there and the coop is well insulated so I think they will be fine. I have one hen who is pulling out her own feathers because she is broody and is lining the nest. Right now she is laying on nothing. We took the egg she was laying on but she is still in the nest growling her fool head off LOL Her neck is bare because she pulled out all her feathers where she could reach. Silly fool bird. I take her out and she jumps right back in. If she is still in there tomorrow I may have to put her in a cage and put her in with the bantams until her broodiness is broken. I hear that works well. I wouldn't mind her being broody if it was spring...heck I would let her lay on all sorts of eggs ;) Ok well, time for bed. I have a cold and 1/2 and I'm feeling just miserable. Training the new girl tomorrow should be a joy! Oh we DID get a movie in and it was really good. Can't remember the name off hand...it was Angelina Jolie (the new one she is in) OH "WANTED" is the name. Very good movie...filled with action and even some comedy in the beginning. Two thumbs up! Night everyone :D

I've seen that movie and it was good. Sorry you are sick but I'm sure it's all the in and out you do. Hope everyone is warm outside. I feel so bad for the animals out in the weather. So glad your dogs are safe and sound in the house. We're not that cold it's like 15 feels like 1 suppose to actually be O tomorrow and feel like below zero so we'll get a little taste of what you all have.
Take care, Chrissie

That is cold. no wonder you have a cold getting out and tending to those chicken in this kind of weather, especially at night. Glad that school is out since it is so cold. I hope it warms up soon. We are due for a couple of nights really cold but not as cold as you have it there. Helen

Thats just too cold for me Carrie. You take care of yourself with that cold too. The temps were dropping this morning from the thirties to the twenties and we are going to get brutally cold for this area tonight, around 6 degrees. I cannot even begin to imagine YOUR cold weather, no way. Glad you got all that work done in the garage out of the cold. Get some rest now! You are sick remember? lol...Love, kelly
