Garry,Let me catch you up. Real estate market has slowed in some ways, in other ways, it’s still stupid crazy. But, will not turn it down. House is under contract as of 10 last night.
Our Monday was spent trying to prepare our trailer for 20 degree weather later this week. Mostly done, just one panel to cut and place around drains and handles and then cover foam board with vinyl tarps. Then we will see.
Finally, in the how’s the weather treating you, a front blew through.
Great times and blessings all around

Hard to see in the pictures but we had a nice little snow flurry today
Sorry it hit you! Keep us posted on your recovery. ChuckHaven't really been "active" on here since Friday. Started feeling pretty crappy Friday night. I have to take a weekly Covid test for work so I took it Saturday morning...negative. Figured it was the flu but after 4 days wasn't much better. Went to the doctor yesterday and they did a flu and Covid test. Flu was negative. Got the call about the Covid results today...positive. It's just like case of the flu to me luckily. Feeling pretty good but I'm out of work for at least 10 days. If it would've hit about the end of the first week of November, I could have hunted the second week of muzzle loader and first week of rifle deer season but oh well. I'm glad it wasn't too bad for me but hope no one else gets it. My wife works from home and doesn't have any symptoms. HOPEFULLY she doesn't get it.
Someone mentioned bales today. That was actually my first thought, just didn’t follow up. Wife was very concerned with rodents and the use of hay or straw. I still need to spread rodent bate and also put tarps over this. But I got a long ways.
Denise saw a forecast that included snow Thursday night but I haven’t really looked. Just know temp is supposed to crash Thursday and Friday nights to about 20. Will be a test!!!!
I do have a ceramic heater near the tank collection box on low.
Garry, we always used to use good clean wheat straw bales around my grandma's trailer. As long there is no grain in the straw, it doesn't act as an attractant, but still is a warmer area mice want to colonize, so poison is always needed. Might be something you could use to augment your insulation if you could find a source.
Article in today's paper described why police in Portland did not intervene in destructive protests last week - #1 reason because the rules inacted by Oregon senate essentially prevents them from doing their job safely. If it keeps going, I'm getting me a gun just to protect my own.I hope he didn't a child. The government is making it easier on the criminals and harder on law enforcement. And then when they do get to court, the "justice" system doesn't do anything to them.
