jan 26 2015
100 pounds of rice and we are ready ...i also think we need a helium balloon to tie to wanda so  we can keep track of her in the ..now 30 inches of snow predicted for this area... it is the blowing --- that really screws up the work.s.. we could have bare ground in the parking lot and 12 feet all piled up on the door...
***
plan is to get all the dogs in the barn-- with it's automatic generator and heat-- shoujld be fine-- and load the rest in this house-- where we do have a generator ( electric start) but we also have fireplaces  and ... bless that old huge cooking stove--
plus----locate the shovels before they get burried and require memory to locate.
***
a big job of the day  ---must get firewood  distributed to guest house and laundry/training room stoves...and then leave the tractor with a full tank of  fuel.  golf carts are stashed out of the way- and the big one is in the garage..  30 inches--  we are going to have trouble pushing it out of the way--  it is not going  to "push" -- it will be more lift and shove.....i did open the drivewya as best i could yesterday-

we should be fine unless  these 100 ' tall trees start falling on us-- that could get exciting.
we have lived thru a building collapse before -- the old arena-- this arena with it's smooth shape, the snow should slide off--- making an impossible mountain in the door to the flat field ( where i did manage to get the tractor stuck in one blizzard.)

several volunteers are planning to stay overnight tonight--  slumber party !! please-- back into the parking places
heat and food-- and we will make it. pizza delivery will be impossible--  but cooking with no electricity is a challange-- so precook and heat up is a better choice...
and maybe partially  thaw out the many gallons of ice cream

and another  big problem--- we no longer have MARY---  she used to break down a path in the deep snow..for the dogs to run in a loop  up over puppy hill and the flat field... janine reports that  the 3 fatso's that are getting too much hay will probably be useless..rumor has it the draft pony is not quite broken-- or else he is too opinionated to stear-   we can put maddy up on him and push him into the flat field-- with 2 feet of snow, he would come back better behaved-- and if he throws her off , the landing would be soft.

and traci --- adams-- just plain can  not leave-- she is too valuable in this predicted storm-- so she rebooked a week later...and was not charged for it-- i was ready if she had a rebooking penalty--

we are going to try and get the highlander back today-- it has been fixed for a week and i keep forgetting it.  plan of the day is to go to costco -- with wayne for the 100 # of rice for the barn-  and load up on food we can heat up---  soups are good... the tire place will either be inundated - or barren-- if barren i could try and my tires changed--.. i am told the supermarket is out of bread

and just to keep you all amused-- i did email tim and see if he could keep the leaf camera going for amusement purposes...  it covers the driveway area

 i have written a letter to the superintendant of schools-- i just sent it to  our board for approval  just to make sure i did not sayu anything i should  not have said...  there was alot i wanted to say--- and all of that could have been said in 25 words or less...  but i would have owed  about $23 to the swear bear.

someone sent me a Words of wisdom thing about people who swear are more reliable than those who don't.
must be true-- it was on the internet.
