Winter is here in Central Texas

Ice and sleet outside with freezing rain and the temps in the low 30's.

Tonight i plan to buy a few more propane heaters for the barn, gets some tarps for the trees, and put some wind breaks on the rabbit and chicken pens. As i expect this to be a hard winter, i believe i may go and buys some more chain saw blades and sharpeners and get ready for ice storms and wood burning stoves.

We have a fireplace, but if we had an extended outage, the propane heaters and wood stove in the basement would/should keep us alive and toasty.

Also need to make sure both my generators are working and fueled as well.

Brr... cold it is...
