2017 Saturday One Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
Even if you love the snow, this cold might be a bit much. I got up during the night to find our water line froze. It was 20+ below. Regardless, we had heat everywhere and we left the faucet dripping. (OMG) It was almost 3 AM. Cliff wrestled with the idea of getting up or not. Eventually, he could not sleep and therefore he got up. He bundled up and went to find the problem. It was not serious, but somehow the heater had gotten knocked loose in the pump house. He plugged it in and hoped for the best. He checked everything else (after all, he was up and outside in the middle of the night). We have a couple more of other smaller issues, but they were not serious enough to be concerned. By 7 AM the water issue had cleared. (Hurrah)
This will be a tough week to keep up on things. Cliff is making a propane run this morning. We own a generator and various other propane heaters. In the event of a power outage, we want to be well prepared. The accumulation of snow doesn’t look great; however, the amount under the farmhouse eaves is adding up. Flatlanders of the Treasure Valley do not expect this kind of accumulation. The weather folks are calling this the Storm of the Century–other conditions make is very precarious.
Meanwhile in Southern California
~ Sherlock was chilling in his preparation for the weekend.

On a very personal note
Cliff’s battle against the bitter cold weather has escalated. You read what happened last night. Regardless, we count our blessings. There are other folks who have it a lot worse.
I returned to the clinic yesterday. The battle against this bronchitis has been ongoing. It began before Thanksgiving. It is exhausting if nothing else. I am doing another round of antibiotics. I would prefer to skip them, but it doesn’t seem possible.
Our work on the farmhouse is at a standstill. We can do little else but battle the weather and take care of our business. If we are silent know that you are in our thoughts. Anything can happen during the big melt and ice storm they are predicting. We are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.
Thanks to You
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are in need of a few stories to get through the December blogging. Several of you have promised; however, we understand how busy you might be–nevertheless if you can send along something we would greatly appreciate it.
