Tuesday Dec. 5th
Well, I really must continue on for a moment about yesterday. I went out to let the chickens out into their greenhouse area, when I got inside the greenhouse didn't the door slam shut making the latch come down over the hook and there I was locked in with the chickens. I had just a brief moment of panic I must admit. Yelled out hoping Roger might hear me but he was in the bathroom getting washed up. Well, I thought, eventually he will wonder where I was and come looking but then thought he would probably just turn on the TV or radio to get the news, make breakfast, etc, forgetting me entirely. I just burst out laughing with the thought of it all. So I said to myself, you can get yourself out of this if you just stop and think. I spied a piece of thin wood lying on the floor, then managed to push it out through a very thin opening where the top of the door meets the main part of the greenhouse. I was able to bang on the latch and bingo.....it popped open. Now to the snow storm. Woke up to a lot of heavy snow down and still snowing. The electricity had been knocked out and consequently we had no water as the main pump in the community is run by electricity. We spent a good part of the morning shoveling snow and finally got it all done. The electricity and water came back on about 2:00 pm. What a day! More snow expected tonight.
