High of 44 today, and an inch of rain with thundershowers over the top of 4-5" of wet snow. High tomorrow of 24, low 19, then high of 11* on Saturday, so everything is going to freeze into a hard lumpy, bumpy slippery mess.
I had to srart the loader and clear the driveway of the sloppy wet snow before it froze into icy ruts.
The coal pile even though covered with a tarp is going to freeze into a solid rock. So tomorrow before is gets too cold I'm going to have to haul as much coal inside as I can, to prepare for the weekend and next week.
The Boiler seems to be behaving, I'm maintaining 140* water, but the real test will be saturday night. Forcast to be 2*, that means about -5* here at the farm. I'll see how it does then.
