  Dave, what happened to the roof of your wood boiler?  If I had one that looked like that it would be from me trying to get one more log "close" to the boiler with the excavator...  Not that I've ever done something like that  :-\

I purchased it from a junkyard. I had to buy a new door and Andy had the smoke pipe. Previous owner dropped a tree on it.

Snowstorm, we've got a little lake on the North side of town with some converted cottage's that people live in year round. It's all dirt and a fun little hill down to nto it.  We call it HE- let's call it Heck's Kitchen.  The road agent loves to send me and my little 3/4ton to plow that!  More than once I've finished the offshoots and had to wait for a big truck with sand to get back out!  At least the plowing was done!  Ah, sleet and dirt, so much fun together...

2 inches of snow !!  If we got more than that we would cut this state loose, float it down, and sell it to Cuba.  It's 27 and dropping now.  :o  I need some "global warming".   ;D

I guess that we need studded shoes.  A former governor walking his dog fell and has a concussion.  A friend going to the mailbox fell and broke his collarbone and a rib.  Both are in the hospital.  I didn't slip or fall, but this sleet/ice is slippery.   :o

We will not have church services tomorrow, and probably no school Monday.  Us folks here in the South know what to do with weather.....nothing.   :D

11 degrees tonight, so of course I had four does (Goats) drop kids over the last two days.  Now I'm scrambling to keep the little buggers warm until later this week, when it should be back up to 50 during the day!  Next year the buck is gonna be on lock down during the July-Oct. months for sure!  He knows when the girls are ready, and will find a way to break/jump/push a fence down, when the time is right!  Right now, I'm just wondering how an old buck's meat would taste on a snowy day....  ;D ;D

-10C which works out to around 12F and no wind which is pretty typical for this area. A bit of snow is predicted but nothing to get excited about. We watched some news footage of the Carolinas and Georgia tonight, that is really something. Welcome to our world.

We got 5" in upstate SC- a lot, for us. It's about 12 this AM, again, cold, for us. They don't plow any of the side roads, and folks here don't know how to drive in the snow, so it gets real interesting. I used to live up north, measure snow in feet, and negative numbers on the thermometer. Some of us eventually wise up and move to places where that's not so common! :D

We are at 19 this morning and should warm up to 40 today.  I have a nice fire  fire_smiley going in the fireplace insert and I wheelbarrowed another load of wood up yesterday.   :)

Currently 29 here in Savannah.  We got down to around 26 this morning.  I put on a big, down jacket to get the newspaper at the end of my driveway.  I remember my years in Maine driving a Ford car with a 428 motor and just plowing through the snow.  Never slid off the road or got stuck.  I did have to stop and pour dry gas into the carb, one time, due to the amount of snow/ice that it had in it from the hard blowing wind.  Also remember driving up to Northern Maine in a blizzard and a deer jumping over the guardrail right in front of the car and it coming from a hillside.  Nope I didn't get the benefit of deer meat since he made a clean, fast dash and kept going.  Have a great day!

Warmed up to 32 at 10:45 a.m.  Freezing cold (Goose, some of us Southerners are Cold Weaklings.)  Both stoves running full out.  Nice inside.  Froze, outside.  I did see one squirrel, but then again, squirrels are crazy.

The high was 32 yesterday. The sun was out and no wind so I actually sawed yesterday. I guess the sun heated the tin roof a little and it was actually nice. But don't let me fool you, my cheeks were Rosie Red.  :)
