Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Way Too Cold

Monday, January 06, 2014

The Farmers Almanac for this week says "Warmest days January 6th through 8th."  Good grief, I hope not!

There should be a law against having to go to work when it's this cold!
On the news today, they said that you hadn't seen weather this cold in the Kansas City area if you were younger than 40.  First of all, that made me feel really old.  But then I realized that I must have been too young to remember it because, well.....I don't remember it ever being this cold.  Not to be graphic, but you know it's cold when you go outside and your boogers freeze in your nose.
I suppose I shouldn't even be whining, since it's negative 40 to negative 50 in Montana, North Dakota, etc.  Holy cow!  Are you guys OK up there?!
Change is coming though, with a gradual warm-up here starting Wednesday and a weekend that's supposed to solidly in the mid to upper 40's.  Anything beats this.  I certainly know that I and the chickens will be glad to be able to get out after being "cooped up".  *grin*   See what I did there?
Speaking of the coop...the temp inside is holding at 23 degrees.  Not idea for us humans, but the hens should come through this cold spell just fine.
Stay warm, my friends!
