Winter Cold

The cold temperatures have finally arrived and for the first time a few of the eggs are cracking due to freezing. 


Not a huge deal until you realize my egg production is down to 5 eggs a day.  I have some ideas how to resolve this.  We will have to see if they are good or not.  I was talking to someone and they were talking that they were getting their husband the shirt..

I feel like this motto also fits at our house.

I don’t normally talk about work but today I was in a meeting and I heard over my radio a call for custodians to come to my office and it was an emergency.  I hurried to my office to find a rainstorm coming from the ceiling.  We hurriedly moved all my stuff and I headed to the second floor.  I arrived just in time to smell a pretty strong odor and hearing the teacher discussing new locations.  As I headed into her room, I discovered she also had a rain storm.  Third floor, here I come, and discovered the head custodian working on the heating system.  As I looked more carefully, an observer noticed two small pipes with water draining out… right to the carpeted floor.  Once we got the water turned off, we started to hear a weird noise in my office.  We also discovered a vent was leaking steam and they had to also turn off that switch.  Ironically, this didn’t really faze me.  I have been trained in a middle school and anything is possible.😉

The only other news on the farm is working through this cold temperatures and managing the feed.  The goats are huge so have lost all grain.  They are sneaky and I caught them hanging out with the pigs to swipe some goodies.
