TODAY IS GOING TO A BE BUSY DAY……. WE WILL BE LEAVING FOR CALGARY FIRST THING TOMORROW MORNING……. SO THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS WE NEED TO DO……

PACKING FOR OUR 10 DAYS AWAY…… FILLING THE CAR WITH GAS…..CLEANING OUT THE FRIDGE…… LETTING OUR GOOD NEIGHBOURS KNOW WE WILL BE GONE ARE JUST OF FEW OF THE THINGS WE NEED TO DO…….

OF COURSE …… WE NEED TO WINTERIZE THE TRAILER….   ONE OF THE MAJOR WINTERIZING CHORES WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW……

AS WINTER TEMPERATURES CAN DROP TO EXTREME LOWS WITHOUT MUCH WARNING……. I WILL BE DRAINING THE WATER LINES AND POURING SOME AUTOMOTIVE ANTIFREEZE IN THE TOILET TANKS AND BOWLS…….   AT -30C……. THE WATER LINES AND TOILETS CAN FREEZE SOLID IN A COUPLE OF HOURS IF THE POWER GOES OUT……..

IF THE WATER LINES DID FREEZE AND BURST…… IT WOULD BE VERY EXPENSIVE TO REPLACE THEM…….. NOT ONLY THAT…… WE WOULD BE WITHOUT WATER FOR WEEKS WHILE WAITING FOR PLUMBERS TO GET HERE AND  REPAIR THE DAMAGE…….

WHILE I WAS DRIVING THE BUS THIS MORNING I ALMOST HIT AN INCREDIBLE 8 POINT BUCK …… UNFORTUNATELY…… IT WAS TO DARK TO GET A PICTURE……..

IT’S -8C WITH THE WIND CHILL FACTOR……. YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE……
