    Anybody heard from FG19 lately? It's been awhile since she last posted.

    Thanks for asking, Dave! This girl of the South has been getting ready for the COLD temps due to move into the region tonight. Between the farm, and the job, I've been pretty busy and preoccupied. I've missed everyone here, and hope that I have things set to "coast" for the next few days.

    I also put another 1/2 cord of wood on the back of the farm truck and pulled it into the garage. At least if it does bring sleet and snow later this week, I'll have dry wood, and a nice stack for the fireplace.

    But, I really do stink at COLD!!!
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    Cold. It is 5* F here in Lancaster with a few inches of white stuff on the lawn. Both stoves are going and keeping this drafty old farmhouse warm and cozy. Gotta love those soapestone stoves!

    While I realize the temps expected to hit here by tonight are not too extreme for many of you, it is pretty rare here, and one has to worry about loss of power if sleet/freezing rain moves in. Without power, there is no well, and I have to make sure I have all water troughs filled to capacity, and extra gallon jugs in the garage for drinking for me and the dogs, just in case. As rural as I am, if power does go down, this area is one of the last to be restored.

    This might be the year I break down and get that generator and have an electrician put in a second box. At least then, I can have the well, hot water, and the blower on the fireplace, in the event of more weather like this.

    I have plenty of food for the critters and me, so for now, am as prepared as I can get. (And if provisions run short, I stored up a little extra pounds over the holidays, so I can last a while without food! )

    But I have plenty of firewood and candles, so I won't freeze to death in the dark!

    I was thinking the same thing last night. Without looking back the last I remember her posting was pics of the ice at her place.

    Glad to see you're OK farmgirl - time better spent to keep warm as you say!

    I too "stink" at COLD! I think I'll borrow that line.

    I "should" load the 2011 Silverado with wood just for the weight and stability on these winter roads, but sounds like a lot of work and I am sure the wood pile is frozen into one big clump.

    Sleet/freezing rain is a mess no matter what state it falls in!

    Fill the bathtub for you and the dogs. In a pinch you can always drain water from the water heater. Good to hear you have firewood and candles. Hurricane lamps and a gallon of oil go a long way too.

    Getting down to the single digits again tonight. Wind chill of -10* (plus drafty old windows). I'm actually looking forward to Tennessee weather.

    Once you get the generator, what you need is a generator transfer switch. For a portable generator, I would recommend just putting a manual transfer switch. It is a lot cheaper and easier. For a permanent generator, then the automatic transfer switch makes the most sense.
