We are a little warmer this morning. It is now 20°, but we got 2-4 inches of snow overnight and it is snowing lightly now. No wind, thankfully.
The tractor didn't start yesterday so DH is on a run into town to pick up something to pour into the gas tank. He kept a light on it all day but it still didn't start. He thinks the internal heater has failed. It is the one we feed hay with so imperative to get it repaired. If worse comes to worse, we can always just turn the cows into the stored hay but that isn't ideal.
Our son and grands are coming in today from KC where they spent the night with our daughter and her family....en-route the long way home from a ski trip to Colorado. I talked to the youngest granddaughter last night and it sounds like they had a great time. She got a cell phone for Christmas and uses it at every opportunity. It is a new day!
I am fixing our son's favorite dinner today. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, a salad and rolls.
Dessert will be the chocolate cake I baked yesterday. I haven't had a test piece............I am proud of myself for resisting!
