Cold in Texas

We’ve been busy weatherizing the house and garden in preparation for these 5 degree-ers we’ve got coming this week. Heath built mini greenhouses around the gardens, moved small plants inside and made sure the chicken house had some insulation to protect them from the wind. Even Marion’s brood got a new home.

On the sly, we moved the eggs indoors, bundled them in a towel, and placed them over a heating pad. Our efforts might be worthless, but if we are able to hatch an egg from this scheme, then we might put incubator companies out of business. Only time will tell.

It froze in Austin today and the cold caused rolling power outages throughout the city. They were so severe that several school districts closed their doors for the day. Things are suppose to get colder tomorrow and my fingers are crossed for a snow day.
