…but stay in the mid-teens at night.
I’ve retired the chickens’ waterers for now, because when they freeze getting them unfrozen is a complicated and usually messy chore.
I have some cheap stainless steel bowls I only use for chickens and -until recently – for Ghost when he visited. They’re easy to clear when they freeze solid, though that’s not a problem with Landlady’s hens because they keep knocking it over.
I have to come up with something different for T&S’s dog water bowls, which have now frozen completely solid and can’t be knocked clear without fear of shattering plastic. Hopefully things will get into the forties this afternoon and soften the ice so I can empty them.
All told, including checking on S&L’s place since they’re also traveling, I was gone about an hour and a half this time. Came back to find the Lair nice and warm, and about to become toasty because it’s baking day! I also brought the Jeep trailer back with me because Landlady’s firewood bin seems to have gone almost empty. Then I’ll leave again for afternoon rounds around 3 or 3:30. Busy day, by my standards.
