The only thing dumb enough to be out in that weather is an idgit like me. Any self-respecting deer is laid up out of the wind, where they'll stay 'til it calms down. The heater can't keep up in this wind, & those windows ain't near air-tight.

Glad you came in before frost bite set in.

Hello! :frow

It wasn't that bad, but it's not mandatory that a deer hunter be uncomfortable when he doesn't need to be. I wasn't looking forward to skinning out a deer if I'd happened to drop one, anyway; not in a cold 30mph wind. I don't need meat that much.

3 Little Red Hens (RSL),1 big BCM rooster , & a raft of their youngin's

Not but 3 kinds of snakes I'm afraid of; big ones, little ones, and live ones

Have Crappie rod, will travel

Call me Ken,Whites, Whitey, or Red Dog; just don't call me late for supper

Yes. I have gro gel, and sav a chick. I had to order the gro gel online because TSC didn't sell it, so I grabbed the sav a chick just in case the gro gel didn't come in time. I got the chick with the weak neck to take a good amount of that gro gel, and the next time I checked in on her she was perked right back up! All three chicks are doing beautifully!

No point in being uncomfortable if you aren't seeing anything anyways. You're getting 30 mph winds, wow!

Congrats on the chicks. Glad to hear she's doing better.

How can they read the numbers when they're shaking so bad out in the wind?

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

I closed the damper & the door vents while she called the fire dept., just in case. When they showed up it was back to normal. I guess we hadn't burned it hot enough for long enough to keep the creosote burned off. The part that baffles me is why that much creosote was even there. We've burned nothing but aged hardwood, like 3-4 years old, & the chimney, thimble, and pipes got the best cleaning they've ever had before we built the 1st fire. Fire dept. had an infrared flotchie that detects heat. They checked the inside wall closest to the chimney & detected no heat other than what my digital alarm clock was giving off 

Wow, I bet that was intense! Glad there was nothing serious!

I've been there twice. That and Kentuck Knob (another Frank structure). Both are really neat places to visit.

No snow here either I guess they don't want the kiddos to freeze hu.gif Wind chill puts the outside temp in the negatives.

We only got a dusting of snow, not the 2-4 inches they were calling for. Unless it's planning to snow later...

If you ever make it out to see it, take an extra day and go white water rafting at Ohiopyle state park. I went with my parents a few times when I still lived at home and then a couple years ago, went with the patents, hubby, my brother and his gf (fiancé now). It's so much fun!
