Winter finally made it here! : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

A COLD north wind today here in the sticks of S.E. IL. I liked to friz this afternoon outside. Even my old bones were ahurtin when I came in the house.

The price of propane is close to $2./gal at Amreigas but that ain't nuthin new--they're always the highest around so I don't buy from'm unless I can get a deal and pay less. Are ya'll ready for winter in your neck of the woods? Personally I'm homesick for spring!!!! oooooooooooooooold, cooooooooooooold hoot. Matt.24:44

Hey there Hoot!

It was fairly nice here yesterday, but I understand we are expecting single digit temps tomorrow night. Ugh!!! I really don't care for cold weather, but it does kill the bugs!

Well, accordin to all the weather folks we're in for a ride startin Tues [tonite] nite. Anywhere up to 8" of that white stuff. I'd just as soon see it not come this far --let't head back up to Canada. They know and are equipped to handle that stuff. I ain't!

Gotta get the old chevy 4 wheel pull pickup out and unload the junk on it at the local scrap yard. Throw in my big jerk rope and fill'r up with propane. It's a LP burner and doesn't even have a gasoline tank on it. With the price of gasoline I couldn't afford to feed the gas hog of a 350 ci. Propane is about .80/gal before road tax.

I rekon we are about as ready for winter as we usually are--NOT! Too late now to spend any time worry'n about it. Just hunker down a mite and lett'r rip.

Folks --don't forget to feed our little furry and feather'd creatures. I got the farmer who rents my farm--to bring me 2 55 gallon drums of shelled corn. I'll start feedin today!! Every body stay warm and Merry Christmas! oldhoot. Matt.24:44
