Like a lot of people across the country, we are experiencing some crazy cold weather today. But lets back up to Sunday night when things got started. That’s when the wind started howling and the snow started blowing. Howling wind translates into me not being able to sleep all night. So I spent all day yesterday exhausted from that and took a complete rest day, which works since I hadn’t taken a rest day since last Tuesday anyway.

It also worked because Barry and I had to spend a lot of time trying to get things situated for the chickens. Long story short: the heat tape we had on the old, plastic 5 gallon waterer got turned up too high and burned a hole through the plastic. We had to get a new waterer for the chickens and had to figure out someway to keep it from freezing in these cold temperatures. More to come on that, as well as a chicken update, in the not-too-distant future.
It was still really windy last night, but I was able to get a little bit more rest due in part to my being exhausted from lack of sleep and my illicit use of night time cold medicine. I still woke up a bunch of times from the wind, but in general it did the trick. Once I got home from work it was time for a run. There was no way that run was going to happen outside today. Here’s why:
