Surviving the storm
A terrible winter storm is blowing through Oklahoma. Right now it is the middle of the afternoon and we have a 13 below 0 wind chill with wind gusts up to 40 mph. Snow drifts are hip high. Wayne and the boys have been going out off and on all day to check on the farm animals. Frozen water is a problem even with stock tank water heaters. The chickens are locked up. The pigs are hiding in their new house. But the horses and cows are out in the weather. To say we are worried would be an understatement. I'm sure it will all be ok but since we are new to this, we don't know. They all have healthy winter coats but still this is extreme! Extra hay and grain for every one today.
The sun is trying to peek out now but it has looked like this all day.
