Another Day of Repairs
The tractor repair guy called this morning. He was worried about one of the hose fittings he'd put on my tractor and wanted to drop by to swap it out for a new one. Guess he came right from home because he was here in less than a half hour and fixed the tractor for me. So that was good.
Then Comcast Cable had to be here, so that repair guy was here around 9 AM. My Internet and phone had been kicking on and off. Turns out some of my cable TV wiring was getting old and was causing some signal disruption. That took about two hours to fix as he even replaced the line coming up to my TV as well as some of the other wires. All was well.
When I'd fed the Boys earlier, I found this:
Now you see why, when blankets are on sale, I buy them. For some reason, I had six brand new ones up in my attic. (I remember buying one for each Boy, but not two!!) Now I know why. Tucker has been "dressed" in this blanket for perhaps a month. At this rate, I figure I will go through half my stock of replacements before the season is over. *LOL*
Everyone else seems to have avoided the destruction so far.
So far the Boys have made paths around the barn area, but I did see a trail going out to the pasture since the storm ended. (They were out there sheltering under the trees at the edge during the early hours of the blizzard. I guess the trees made a decent windbreak.)
They are not the happiest of campers, but they have plenty of hay and water, so that's all the important stuff. And, obviously, they have been playing "Tag."
Seems that Tucker spent most of the game being, "It!"
PS: The 825 guys just came by with my repaired gate. They even reset the post. I'll post pictures tomorrow of the repair work. It's amazing. ( 2 PM, Thursday.)
