Not Liking Today

18 Dec

My morning started with a very cold temperature outside. (-27.7*C)


But we’re troopers in Iowa, so I just started my day.  Of course, the motor on the washing machine burnt up, and I’m having crazy fluctuating power surges and drops.  I have called the power company, and I hope that they can fix it before I lose more major appliance.

When I went out to check my goats in the green house, I noticed that I also had a water pipe break.  It’s a lovely little ice sculpture.  My nephew is going to take care of that tomorrow.


Goats are horribly helpful.  When I was trying to fill their water tub, I ended up dumping water on Ava’s head, so I rushed her to the milk room to dry her off before I froze her ears.  She is luckily doing fine now.



I also noticed I have ice starting to form on my big fifty-gallon water tub.  It seems the heater has quit working. Luckily, I have another that I can use.

Then I had a hen just sitting outside.  I took her to the milk room where it’s warm, and I hope she can recover.


I really am ready for today to be done.

    I really don’t appreciate days like that! Who needs to have that many things going wrong! You have my sympathy!

    Poor little hen! I read today that she’s doing better, thanks to your intervention. The bitter cold sure can cause problems. Hope the power company can get the electrical problems figured out!
