    Jekka, [​IMG] There is only one moment we can do anything about, and that is the current one. Take it one moment at a time, turn your heart toward joy and know that we are here lifting you up.

    This was taken about 4 years ago. We haven't had that much snow since.

    We are having a fantastic winter this year, but so far, no snow at our elevation. [​IMG]

    If you have one of the gallon sized waterers, take soda or water bottle and fill it with salty water. Seal and put it inside the waterer with the fresh water. It has been working for me during this snow this last week in TN. I get some small floating pieces of ice but not a freeze up. I have mine hanging off the floor so that might make a difference if the waterer is on the floor. A couple of layers of cardboard should insulate the cold coming up from the ground.
