Several days in single digits. Last night -7*F. Mancave water lines froze, they are against windside wall, draft comes up between foundation and wood framing. Options thaw and deal with split pipes, or turn off water and hope for spring.
Still running fire place with wood, and now the coal stove in basement with coal (1ton $325) single softball sized chunk burns for hours and stove is glowing now as it should, wood was not hot enough. Lowered the scoop and the house is toasty as the air ducts are still there and doing better than furnace vents.

Dug out momma's car yesterday, fun, under a drift by barn, hens are freezing in coop, the heat lamps are not cutting it, ducks the same, the goats are doing fine with no heat just a lot of haybales and a 'hut' of bales in their house. The wild turkeys are up in the tree by the back porch, all night, and they come down the minute light comes on in kitchen sitting on porch waiting for momma to throw feed.

Got to seal kitchen sliding door, the slot between doors a wind tunnel of cold air. Sealed all basement windows, got the one 'vent' window cracked in wash room. Flurries right now, stuff frozen solid, ruts in road are massive, ice all over. The towns road grader which plows road in ditch on Cty Rd A, still.

Gotta love country living.
