We still have zero
power and zero internet/cable. I went to my sister's
house today with our wireless laptop to usurp her
internet access to update our website and to check
Every day since
the storm I've been wheeling this 300 pound
generator down to the barn to run the pond pump,
which circulates the incoming stream water to all of
our ponds--ensuring everyone has fresh water.
heave it up to the house to plug it into our breaker
panel to power our well pump, which supplies water
down to the barn. We need the well water to spray
out the quarantine pen twice a day where our four
newcomers are staying... and pooping... and
pooping... and POOPING!
After spraying out
their pen and changing the water in their kiddie
pool and water bucket (twice a day), I fill the four
water buckets in the barn.
While we thought
we had 2 boy and 2 girl ducks, we actually have 3
boys and 1 girl. Hopefully the home for the two
black and white boys pans out, but this means the
two gray girls can't stay here because one is a boy.
They'll probably have to go to Nevins Farm since we
don't have anymore room for boys.
The black and
white boys have been named Pete and Repeat. Repeat
has the white angel wing on one side.
The gray Swede
duck (on the pond in this photo) is named Irene. The
gray boy not in the pool is probably going to be
Hurricane or Stormy or Mystery (because we didn't
know at first if he was a boy or a girl) or maybe
something else. A little undecided yet!
