This past weekend got a little colder for most of us in the prairie provinces. Overnight temperatures dropped down to between -29C and -31C with wind chills down into the -40s.

If you're reading this blog post and living in the prairies, you'll most likely agree with me that global warming is no threat to us this past week. It's been a darn cold November, with the official start to winter still several weeks away.Continue reading "It's a mighty wind that's blowing"
It appears as though we got a few critical tasks completed just in time, out on the homestead. A week before the temperatures dropped and the snow finally appeared, we were able to get the skirting done around the cabin, sealing up the crawlspace underneath.Continue reading "Enclosed the cabin's crawlspace and firewood arrives"
First off, I have to say that October has been a very mild month for us. The nice, unseasonably warm weather has certainly made up for the somewhat miserable summer we've had. Which has allowed us to gain back some ground on our preparations for winter.Continue reading "RV skirting installed and ready for winter"
