Ice Storm

I can't help remembering the ice storm we had in January, which knocked out our internet and phone for a week.

We've spent the last couple of days preparing, just in case this was a bad storm. It looks as though it will hit other areas of Oklahoma much harder than it will affect us, but it never hurts to be prepared. We moved hay nearer the animals, and filled all the water troughs and barrels and buckets. We moved one of the dogs to a more-sheltered area in a seldom-used goat pen next to the "barn".

Tonight when I went outside to feed, I was greeted by our one-eyed cat who is supposed to be safe inside a building. She was cold and unhappy about being outside. I picked her up and put her in an empty rabbit cage, and realized that the dog we'd moved was now inside the barn instead of in the pen next to the barn; he must have crawled under the side wall. We put the dog in a stall, and made the cat comfy and warm in the inside-the-barn rabbit cage for the duration of the storm, as I will have to fix the window where she got out of her shed.

During the night one of the goats miscarried; I have no idea which one it was.

Till next time...
