It's REALLY cold here now. -14 with a wind chill factor of 30 below. WOWSY!
A couple of new tricks of the trade and that I have learned when dealing with the cold weather.
1. Stack bales of straw around the base of your house to deter the weather from freezing your pipes.
2. Put a heat lamp, or a light bulb, on the well pump to keep it warm and working.
3. Take the drier hose off, blow out the lint, turn the dryer on to warm up the washing machine pipes when they freeze.
And most importantly
4. Don't try to spray paint anything . . . the paint only sprays out like GODZILLA spewing a stream of fire. :)
It is so cold that Wednesday our school let out early and was canceled Thursday and today. Monday is a recognized holiday so that makes a five (5) day mini-winter holiday for me. Makes me want to shout out some "it's so cold" jokes.
