SOME COLD WEATHER UPDATES🥶❄️☃️

in #homestead11 months ago

SINGLE DIGIT DEIGHTS

It's been hitting near 0 degrees Fahrenheit(-18 degrees Celsius) here and so far all is going really well.

Keeping up on splitting firewood keeps me busy by itself. We are going through quite a bit more then I expected due to the temperatures. But having it stored in the shed makes it so much nicer then in the open last year.

NO FROZEN WOES HERE.

Our water supply line from the spring to the house has not froze.🥳🥳 I did however discover that the pump supply and discharge hoses did freeze. This is not a big deal as the whole assembly is light and I simply bring it in the house now until I need to pump water. We only pump water once or twice a week, so that is a minor inconvenience. Once it warms up I will implement a fix to this situation. Other then that it is working perfectly.

ICE GAMES

We have a nice sized creek (big enough to drive in) on our homestead and hard freezes make for a great time to be had on the ice!!🧊⛸️😁
