Winter is finally here

OK, Now it’s officially winter. It’s 8.7 degrees out this morning. And really windy. It might actually be getting to the point of needing to kick on the heat pump to help out the wood stove…

Ginger

ginger1

This is the newest addition to our Pack – Ginger Gayle. Kim found her running loose in Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, MD. After following her and feeding her for 3 months, they finally got a hold of her and we were able to bring her home. Clean bill of health by the vet, and she fit in amazingly well with the rest of the critters here.

Mid-Atlantic Weather

You know it’s “Winter” in the mid-atlantic when yesterday it was 65 degrees out. And today it’s  36. And they’re forecasting an ice storm.

New battery in the truck, full gas can for tractor and snow-thrower, and ~500 lbs of rocksalt in the shed.
