It's above Zero today, real bizarre. February is usually in the negative most of the month. Since cows don't have fur, what do you do for them?Trying to stay warm. Power stayed on thus far but it snowed last night. Got about 2 inches of snow. Entire parish is shut down. Official "stay home" order, all businesses closed. Supposed to get colder tonight (they think 9 degrees). Cows were OK in the barn last night. Hope it doesn't actually get that cold. Cats knocked something over in mom's room last week that uncovered an unopened electric blanket that was meant for my brother but mom forgot to give it to him. I gave it to him so he's happily curled up under it. He has my heating pads too. I'm about to get 1 of them back from him.
Found a space heater on my brother's bedroom floor under some junk. It still works so I set it up for the kittens in the front room. They are enjoying the warmth.
Best friend told me his pipes froze & his oven is having trouble heating up- he's trying to cook something in it & he said it took 30min to get up to 300.
When stuff opens back up I will have to get him some stuff to wrap his pex pipes to keep them warm. Hopefully they won't burst.
I feel sorry for the people who lost power in this mess. Cats are piled on me keeping me warm at least.
Mom had her first dose of vaccine last week and only had mild feeling of cruddiness for a day and a half and is better now.
I need to heighten the priority of getting a better shelter for the cows so they can have someplace cool in summer and warm in winter.
Hope everyone else is staying warm.
