There's a huge storm barreling through the Northeast and into Canada with hurricane force winds, freezing rain and huge amounts of snow. We're getting ready and some of you are in the middle of it. How did you prepare, or how are you preparing? For those of you now without power, God bless and hunker down, we'll talk to you when you get back. We're taking extra jugs of hot water to the barn and baffling them with hay bales; the feed hoppers are full, likewise the waterers. If the power goes out we have a generator but it will be many hours after the storm ends before we can dig out and operate it. Or barn is a long way from the house thankfully downhill but we get huge drifts during storms like this, may have to enter barn through a window; Horse gets a hot bran mash tonight and extra bedding,extra hay and alfalfa chunks; barn cats get boiled eggs tonight, have fresh bedding in their sleeping boxes and lots of water and kibble, litter boxes clean; hens have new bedding in nest boxes, extra shavings in the coop, pop doors closed and waterer plugged in. Pellet hopper is full, snow boards to protect run; Propane tanks at 60%, oil tank at about 65%, laundry done, clean dishes, errands run. We are very lucky.
