Sunday, January 5th … in central Illinois

The snow is coming down:

Jan5 Jan5x

The cars are parked and the chores are getting done:


The coffee has been made and enjoyed:


The chili is cooking and the rolls are rising:


And the weather?  It is only going to get worse…

Graphical depiction of the weather story for today.

We are in the 8-10″ snowfall area ^.  My main concern, though, is the wind chill prediction.  Pig farmer and I spent several hours yesterday rigging up more wind breaks. We cleaned pens and freshly, deeply, bedded pens. Now, we hope for the best.

And just make some more coffee.

    You are startin’ to sound poetic. Don’t put any Teflon lights on your animals. It kills chickens. Not sure about larger animals.

    In the 6″ – 8″ range here, but much more concerned about the wind and dangerously cold temperatures.

    Stay safe and stay warm. Hope you’re animals do okay in this weather.

    And good information about the light bulbs. Will have to remember this in the future.

  4. Cold and snow up in northern IL, too. Chili and rolls are the perfect antidote, though. 🙂

  5. We don’t have snow like that where I live in Oregon, but I lived in Montana and Idaho as a kid, and we sure did. My kids have missed out on making forts and sledding.

    Brrrr! Those are some cold wind chill temps–perfect for chili and bread baking in the oven. I like the mug next to your coffeemaker. I’ve never even heard of Teflon lights.
