    It was -18 last weekend. Only thing was bad was that I was not able to feee the cows due to tractor won't start but I didn't know it had bad extension cord on the plug warmer for diesel tractors. Lucky I bought propane to connect the torch to warm up the tractor diesel underneath for emergency. It started about 30 min later. Whew! Got happy cows in the end.

    Lowest in my area was -6 we were pretty well prepared except for my post on 4 Roses! Believe it or not we ran out of dill pickles and pickled jalapeños but that’s because my daughter eats pickles for snacks and puts jalapeño on everything. I might need to start canning again.

    @Casi definitely is nerve racking when you need the tractor but it is too cold to start!

    @DJ never had 4 Roses, but have heard several people singing its praise! May have to check it out sometime. We can about 30 pints of garlic dill pickles and 8-10 pints of pickled jalapeños each year. We go through them like candy too!
