Gina,
Just in jest, but Mom wasn't doing a very good job keeping everyone warm at Green Valley if the water dishes inside were frozen!

PS,
Going from "Nuestra Casita" to the house, in the morning, reminds me of "the old days" when the outhouse was our only "facility". For the benefit of those who might not know, during construction "Nuestra Casita" is still functioning as our bedroom but the house kitchen and bathroom are still functional.

I said OUTSIDE water dish! They have duplicates of everything, the rats. Inside and outside food dishes, water dishes, bedding, toys..ugh.

Mom was a good Mom. I broke the rule and let them IN the bed. I don't run the heater at nite at those elevations (7200) due to my bad breathing nite and the lower natural oxygen levels, aggrevated by a cat heater and two snoring dogs. It was windy, and my usual habit of having the window over my head open with heater on wasn't cutting it. The chill just whipped into the trailer. It was actually warmer to leave the heater off and the window closed.

The thermometer over my bed said 37. Obviously, outside it was below freezing.

My bedding is almost too warm, heater or no, and they were shivering. It took a bit for them to figure out it was OK, I actually had to coax them. The bedding was going in the wash today anyway. They were shivering so bad, how could I NOT let them in?

Let's hope they don't get used to it.

None of us woke up dead tho.

I have some flexible rubber buckets and other containers, bought from the local farm supply store, to use for water outside in the winter. I turn them over and jump on them to knock the ice out before refilling. If I needed this setup for camping, I would find another place to camp...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

SNOW!!!! Today was the first afternoon that one could work outside, as for the last few months it has been too HOT, here It was, for a change, pleasant weather, and lower humidity.
I want to be a "sunbird" so badly, and get away from the TX Summer sun !!
