Raven/Misty!! Here's a late but very sincere welcome back!! I was certainly hoping that the negatives during that time hadn't chased you off. And it was during Storm Sandy wasn't it, where we chatted for so long that night? Or has my mind finally slipped? I seem to remember Blueminer popping in to tell us he was in a WalMart(?) parking lot, hunkered down for the night and he was seeing the flash of transformers sparking everywhere...

I'm also pleased to hear that your honey is safe out there on the road.. If I remember correctly, you were hoping for him to return in time for the Holiday back then, right?

It appears that maybe, just maybe, this thread has turned into what it once was and we can all converse with minimal quarrels and rude insertions directed toward a few of us. We've done our best to keep the nastiness down.. I can only hope that this continues.

Anyway, I hope you didn't loose your power. It's bad out there today too. Coffee is my main stable. If power goes out here, I'll be building a campfire in the grill to boil water, even if it took burning boxes and such, hehe. There's no doubt in my mind. I have a bug out camp coffee pot mess kit. You just never know, LOL!

Again, WELCOME BACK!!!

@Nope.. You don't need a bug out coffee pot search. Just boil the coffee in a stew pan and add a little cold water when it is done and the grounds will sink to the bottom or you can spit them through your teeth, LOL

Good morning to you as well, AW. My dog babies have already been out.

I'm sad to report though that AB's wonder recipe couldn't stand up to the elements over night. It's just too frigid But thankfully, it was only one of my baby's who had a problem getting back up after 'doodie' called at 6:00 a.m. They made it down with no problem, but one lost it's footing on the way back up and was stuck midway coming back up...

So I had to do the hover rescue again.(I.E., the sling around the belly, lift and support the hind legs as my dear dog baby used it's front paws to help me get it back up to the top. MAN, my feet were frozen.

(It happened as I was still barefoot. Ran out there without a second thought of my own protection from the elements. My feet still are still a little bit on fire from the frigid cold and ice).

I've made a new batch of the wonder recipe and this time I used everything else but also added in some Listerine and a cup full of table salt dissolved in it. As soon as I get enough Java in my belly, I'll head out and pour this concoction down to see it it can hold up. If not, I'll string a danged blow dryer up with an extension cord and blow what moisture that I can away... If that doesn't work, I'll just go out with them today every time 'doodie' calls, just in case.

It's that left behind liquid thats refreezing within mere minutes. You can almost watch it harden up before your eyes on those wooden deck steps.

I'll use my bug out pot, hehe. It's just like one of the old style ones with that metal filter pan on a stem. A true 'drip percolator' that not many these days still use. No doubt that if I put it on the stove it would probably beat this expensive 'vanity' Keurig K-cup brewer, hands down..

Good Morning. If I ran out in my barefeet with the blood thinner that I take, they might thaw out by next August. lol Luckily I don't have any wooden steps or any steps at all. My walk path is just broken up pieces of creek rock that I have placed between landscape timbers. It would have to get really icy to make those small pieces of rocks slick. Plus I keep rubber boots with treads sitting right by my back door along with my bibs, carhart coat, and hat. I just throw all that on over my indoor clothes. I gave my snow shovel away.

During the last long power outtage I boiled my coffee in a pan on the wood stove then just poured the results through the Mr. Coffee.

Mixed my Dawn anti-freezing bucket and treated my steps, driveway, and sidewalk as soon as it was covered with that white stuff and the temps/wind was starting to freeze up. You didn't go out and buy little Biscuit a doggie sweater did you? lol
No AB, didn't buy him a sweater but he does have a floor full of toys for me to step on. This morning little biscuit lifted his leg to pee for the first time,, my baby is growing up, he's a man now,,.lol. He is no longer a squater. Sniff, sniff they grow up so fast. Oh, his weight has doubled, the vet weighted him in at 9 pounds yesterday.

Mine are already out and eating their hot oatmeal. It's so easy to make in the nuke-o-wave. Quick oats and water, with yummies added to cool it down. I hope they get their gullets full before it freezes into a large clump of stiff paste.. It usually doesn't last that long though, LOL! If there are leftovers, I have a few smart squirrels that have caught on to where warm vittles have been served..

This morning they got strewn aside parrot seeds in it with some cat crunchies plus the leftover veggies from dinner last night. Had to put some pretty warm water in the 'outside the coop' drinking water bowl.
(Thankfully I have a small flock, so it's not breaking the bank to give them these goodies. They seem to love it, and that's all that matters to me, hehe. Happy hens = nice, big, orange yolked eggs).

Good morning everyone. Looks like everybody is chatting up a storm, and I missed out on the good conversation. But alas, I have a friend in Maine who is going through some emotional turmoil and I've been on the phone with her for hours at a time. It is COLD out there this morning. This weather is freaky. I really need spring to arrive so I can go outdoors and walk for exercise. My muscles have deteriorated into a mass of flab since I've been sick. Hate that. Plus gravity is doing its work on my aging body. Have another doctor appointment this afternoon. I'll pop in from time to time today.

Good morning bird threaders. It is a whopping 7 degrees here. Sun is shining bright and I have not even opened my door. I think I will wait until I have my last cup of java before I venture out to throw all my bread, cornbread, stale rolls etc out to the birds and see if my fat gray tom is out waiting for food and fresh water (probably has ice in his bowl).

Hope everyone is staying warm. I am going back to read up where I left off. Anxious to see if misty eyed was the correct answer of our mystery last night.

I have outside dogs that refuse to come in. They have build up winter coats and can get in some of the barns if they want to. My lab is well over 100 pounds, and the other two are about 50-60 pounds. Stein is the smallest at about 30 pounds, but he thinks he's one of the big guys and rules the roost. He stays inside and pretends to guard the family.

<quoted text> Just heard from partner 9p.m. eastern time, passing thru Tennessee on his way to Danville, Arkansas. Electric has tried to go out here in eastern ky. Hope not, it's too darn cold. I'm gonna nap for several hours. Debating whether to fix coffee and put it in a thermos/ carafe. If the electric goes poof, no java. We have bout two inches of the s stuff. It ain't pretty.Stay warm folks...and safe;)
Good morning Misty Eyed, I told AW I thought it was you, I remembered you said your man was heading to Arkansas. I hope your power didn't go off. I am glad you posted again and didn't let the meaness here keep you away. That was all mild compared to before Christmas. I apologize for my part in it and hope you continue to join us. This has been an escape for me for two years having found some real decent folks not trash talking every day like most threads. I have learned allot on this thread and made some wonderful friends I hope to meet someday. So glad you came back. You stay warm and safe too, hope your man makes it back safe and soon.

Have a wonderful day!

Good Luck, say did you once use another ID? We have been trying to determine it?
Good morning Ancient Wolf. I originally thought it was MistyEyed, only because I remembered that Arkansas trip she mentioned, then I thought maybe it was "unspoken heart", who was so sweet in all her posts. Maybe she will come back. It is great having betty back.

Hope your son made to Indianapolis with no trouble. Stay warm.

Time for some scrambled eggs and bacon. I don't usually eat this early, but I'm famished for some odd reason!
Be back a little bit later after I eat a bite and get a few chores done!!
