Getting Ready for Much Colder Temperatures


We have lived in this house for almost 16 years, and had the water lines freeze at the well one time. Hubby and a friend completely demolished the existing building and made a much better one, and they built a frame around the pump head and filled it with soil. We have not had a problem since. That said... the weather is getting much colder (for here it is really cold).

On the farm, if we lose power, then we have no running water, because we are on our private well. I have some water storage in case of power outages...but we might have water lines freeze. I am getting several 5 gallon buckets filled in the bathtub (for flushing).

The larger Terry Trailer is inside the shop building. We have a generator for using with the trailer. The plan for warmth is the move into the trailer and be able to stay warm and cook with propane.

Stay Warm Friends!
