Popular Post Dempsy's Mom Posted December 28, 2016 Popular Post Share Posted December 28, 2016 (edited) We keep plugging along. Christmas we were without power for about 6 hours is all. 12000 people are still without power so we feel lucky. It was a strange Christmas, but surprisingly fun. Christmas Eve was with friends - weather wasn't so bad. Christmas Jim and I played cards by candlelight and held off with dragging out the generator hoping for power to return. Rained most of Christmas. Got a phone call from the neighbors to come over for prime rib - told them if the power comes on we will jump in the shower and be there. An hour before the meal was to be served the power came on and we enjoyed a wonderful Christmas supper. Our drive over to their place was in rain with mild wind. When we returned home Dempsy and Elsie got to have a little prime rib too and went to bed quite happy with their Christmas. Monday was much worse with high winds around 50 mph, blowing snow - made it a real blizzard. Even with the rain, wind and snow Dempsy, Elsie and I continue to bottle feed Maggie (the little calf attacked by coyotes). She is out with the other calves and doing great. Farm prices are in a real slump and we are a little anxious about 2017 - but it will work out. Tomorrow I have to take Demps and Els to a kennel for a couple days. We have a new one in Clark that I am going to try. It's just for 2 days but I hate kenneling them. So that's a quick update - nothing to major happening. We wish you all a very happy year - ready or not here we go again.
