Life seems to be taking on a very specific pattern here...
When the super cold comes life begins to blur into one very long day or one very long storm that all seem to be looking about the same.
While the ice-storm struck so many, out here on the range we just got snow - thank you!!! The slight difference this time was "how" cold it got I got some new thermometers for outside (and yes one is already broken) and they stopped at zero. So, if it went lower I can either pretend I don't know about it or be happy we made it thru another record breaker here in the tiny trailer!
At the coldest outside it was in the high 50's inside - well depending on where exactly you are... the back end was close to getting south of 40....
But still all totally doable. The coldest I've been in since I left home was 6 degrees, so this was less than that and all was okay! Yea Yea Yea!!!
There was one slight disaster, Lilith likes to sit where I sit and so she climbs into the dent left by my rear end as it is nice and warm. I had at one point just leaned about six inches forward and went back down... yea, it was ugly for her. I can't believe she could move that fast and she still isn't really talking to me...
I had wanted to get this picture before it snowed- that tumbleweed pile was NOT there the day before. The winds brought them and a lot more in. What is really weird is the wind was blowing in the opposite direction from which they piled up. Not really sure how this happened?
The last picture is my favorite from today. This morning, too early to take pictures and too cold (last storm my camera stopped working?) everything was covered in soft snow and was sparkling like diamonds as the sun crested the horizon.
I couldn't exactly capture that feeling, but this is close!
So, each day seems to be bringing new adventures. Right now it's only about 24 degrees out but I've got NO heater on - yea! I don't like the way that kind of heat feels and the sun is much better. Plus, let the truth be known just how frugal I can really be.... hey, we've got tons of blankets!
Below is the video from the last storm - which was a lot like this one, minus the ice part. Other than that? The dark trailer, camping in my tiny warm zone, and two heaters going - yup, yesterday was a lot like that...
Hope you enjoy the pictures - it seems to be my favorite part of all this so far!
See you next time from out here on the prairie!!!
Welcome to my Journey!
I'm inviting you to join me on my journey as I seek to find a new way of being in an old set of systems. It's hard, but worth it!
