It's cold!

Right now, it's 28 degrees outside. Tonight is supposed to be worst - as in lowest - temperature of the four days of cold that threaten plants and pipes.

We did what we could for our plants, taking some inside the game room and covering others. We also did what we could for the pipes, but when you live in an old wood-frame farmhouse on piers, you face the almost certainty of frozen pipes.

So tonight we'll be up several times running water through the sinks and bathtubs to try to keep them as open as possible. The next few days will be a challenge, for sure, but as long as we don't lose electricity, Joel, me, Ellie and Barley should be comfortable.

I hope your family is as well.
