I'm sure they all had block heaters. No help, huh?  At -70, I'm not surprised. Humans aren't designed to exist at those temps

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

You could try one of those strings of lights like Mike has used for his brooder or Sally and Mike were talking about for the Serma.
There are also heated pet beds that have had type thing that you can pull out and microwave. I use one to keep waterfall all day out in one of my small coops. Ultimately, you could sew a small bag and put dry beans in it and microwave them. It won't hold as much heat for as long but it is cheap.

He also said it's 95* and she won't stay under the heat lamp! Your guess is good as anyone's

I just throw a scoop on hot coals once a week(twice the first time) and then burn a hot fire.

I think it was more that if something happened and a bus quit, everyone would freeze quickly.

Well, all the dumb ones are in my neighbor's yard, staring at me. Boy am I glad I got that fence up.

And of course you used REAL maple syrup right? Not the "maple" syrup they sell in stores.

 

And people wonder why there pretty plants and flowers always get mowed down. It's cause of deer like those.


Of course! I get it by the gallon from a small family operation in Massachusetts (via my cheesemaking supplier), and I freeze it in pint jars for later use (had some go moldy once). I pulled out enough to make candy from 2 cups of syrup. Yum!!!!

 

Yeah, in my yard/plans, there's "pre-fence" and "post-fence" eras... :D

BTW, Chaos, the GNH listened to you - I got 2 eggs today. But the Naked Necks didn't buy whatever you tired to sell them. Nada. :/

@Akrnaf2Did I stump your culinary skills with the Jerusalem artichoke, or did I miss your reply? I read in my gardening book to try something new every year and I liked the kohlrabi I tried a couple of years ago. I am not sure what to do with this stuff.CC suggested it makes good alcohol fuel, and while that is really good to know if I ever need a backup fuel source it doesn't help me figure out a good way to eat it.
I wonder if my goats would like it?
