PINEY SNOWY WOODS UPDATE
Heating system on constantly to keep the home 68 degrees. Propane fireplace helps kick that up if we want. Rolling blackouts coming so propane use will be saved for whole house generator use. We have been told our tank will run it for three days straight if full. It is. Blackouts start today.
Local news say STAY OFF THE ROADS/IN THE HOUSE/DRAPES CLOSED TO KEEP HEAT IN/MINIMIZE HEATING AREA IE., JUST ONE MAIN ROOM/SERIOUS
Crops lost. Heard a cat meow a dozen times on the front porch around midnight. Looked and only saw prints in the snow. Crap!! Not sure if the lemon trees will survive even though they are in the metal shop with one electric heater on them.
The bride is worried about her rose plant, the one I gave her last Valentines Day. We are told they are hearty. This little plant has already proved itself here. Have written about that a few times. My bet is that it will be a survivor.
Neighbor called and checked in. Said he was heading out to check on and feed his cattle. Matter of fact and all in a days work!
Wife's brother just noted that they have been w/o power where he lives in Dallas now for 3 hours.
When we moved to East Texas we knew we would never ever have to deal with ice and snow again.
So how is that working out for us?
Thanks for checking in.
