The hazards of having a tarp roof – branches easily fall through during wind storms. October 27, 2009
Jeremy’s boots covered in ice because of our below freezing temperatures. He has no way to keep them dry or warm so they freeze until warmer weather comes along. Temperature was down to 6 degrees Fahrenheit during the night for a week. First week of December 2009.
Solid block of ice from one of our buckets during the freeze. Stayed this way on the ground without melting for five days. First week of December 2009.
Woke up to snow one morning. December 13, 2009
More snow. December 13, 2009
Jeremy out in snow to fill the canning jars with hot water that we use for heat (makes a hot water bottle for putting in bed). December 13, 2009
