Needless to say, heat lamps glow in the stalls and coops while every plant has a winter blanket for protection. Pipes are wrapped and fire wood stand all in a cord outside the back door. While no mad rush to the market was needed, plenty of water is on hand in case of power outage.
Tonight I put an extra blanket on the bed, some warm tea in my cup, and snuggle down with a good book. It's going to be a cold one; I'm ready... are you?
