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
