I had put my gloves in the microwave to dry and warm them up..Ok, you can stop laughing now. You had to figure that if it works I would at least try it. And so several times yesterday that is exactly what I did. I was out feeding at 10:30 pm last night...The horses being grateful for the extra rations. A friend stopped by with eggs and milk. The gate was frozen shut and I was unable to open it even after smacking it with a hammer. I searched for Rocky and Aida for 15 minutes and was worried when I could not find them...I even went to the barn and looked around were I had tried to convince them to stay. I looked in each place that I thought they might be. I then returned to the news for a minute before going to bed. The news said another 6 inches. I was glad when I finally woke this morning to what was on the ground from lastnight.
I heard the phone ringing and just could not wake at 6am..Ah, I had finally slept for more than 5 hours in the last week. I had to knock myself out with tea and a sleep aid. The phone then rang again at 6:20 and hubby asked if I was still sleeping...I think he was saying the roads were really slick and he had to go...I tried to return to sleep but Rocky had not intention of letting me do so. The coffee had not turned on by itself and I was forced to wait the whopping 4 minutes for the cup of coffee I wanted so bad. I was barely awake during the brewing cycle and heard Rocky once again..I thinking it seemed rather close. I opened the kitchen door looked on the hand rail and ...Nothing no Rocky. It never occurred to me to look above my head...So there I stood, the door wide open and was startled when I heard him again, I looked up and the on the rainspout drain pipe was Aida and Rocky...I, still asleep was at least aware enough to go get the camera....I then enjoyed my coffee now that I did not have to worry about finding frozen chickens...Daylight has just broken and I was able to see that all the trees had shed all the snow off of them...Although there is still snow on the ground.
