Is everyone still alive or did y'all freeze?

So, I've noticed over the past two days the boards are a little......dead.

Just checking to see if everyone is still around or has everyone been frozen because of the weather.

So, how's it going?

:D

Yeah, tryin' to get stuff done out in the barn before the below-zero temps get here. No insulation out there, & it's heated by kero & #2 ... so gotta be smart with it. Heat only gets turned on when I'm out there during the day ..... & it STILL costs a fortune to keep it comfortable - even with many layers of clothes on. :shock:

Been movin' snow around with the front loader. Gettin' ready for the next one.
I need to find a snow blower attachment for the Kabota, but I don't like the idea of it being on my rear PTO.
That's gonna make for a stiff back.

Heh, I should've taken some initiative myself to clean my gutters. Too bad they are covered in ice.

Yea, I've been stuck inside trying to repair the rusted-out flue connector on my neighbors boiler. The things definitely needs to be replaced soon, just need it to stay put for a few weeks. I couldn't find tape with a high enough temp. rating, so I bought a tube of fire-roof caulk. I hope it doesn't collapse!
