It’s white outside!
Late yesterday, Ol’ Man winter finally made his showing. All through the night, heavy gusting winds and lots of sleet and actual snow. Winds gusting hard enough that one of my solar panels was knocked loose and slammed back down on the top of the RV. Voodoo about crapped his-self then. He wasn’t real happy about winds either. “The house is rockin’ ’round Dad! WTF?”
Little stove did wonderful even after a few hours of wind and some new drafts rearing up and letting me know of their existence (winds helped a lot there) the temp in the RV was still mid 60’s this morning. I did have to get up a couple of times to restoke as I didn’t damper back as much as I usually do, but I was still able to get decent sleep in between.
Voodoo is actually enjoying this. The first time he saw snow, he flipped out and refused to come out of the house for awhile. Now, he is having a blast in it. Chasing snow balls is even more fun than chasing sticks! He doesn’t last very long in it, but when he is out there, its dog heaven. Then right back inside, right in front of the stove and curl up into a tiny little ball for a bit, after thoroughly cleaning his paws. (good, I don’t need ice damaged paws on him.)
Least to say, There isn’t an whole lot going on here today. Outside construction will have to wait. Torching apart scrap metal will have to wait. Can’t fire up the forge yet as it is not in a wind break. I can’t get up on top and remount the solar panel till the wind dies down (and the ice melts, don’t wanna fall off the beast ) ( It is still hooked up but laying flat on its back covered in snow right now.)
Yup, today is an inside project kind of day. Maybe boredom will get the best of me and I will come up with a post on something to make during snow days.
