  1. Thanks! Mine love peppermints, Granny Smith apples and the German muffins for horses (it's rare I buy those though because they are so expensive). Thanks for the advice on what to plant. We are still pretty new to donkeys.
  2. Have you ever planted rye in the winter? My yard used to look like that in the winter. This year we planted rye in the fall. Our fenced in backyard used to look like the field. In the summer we will plant more Bermuda. I know people hate Bermuda but we had it at our old house and loved it. It thrives in heat and is low maintenance.
  3. Do you keep yours on a dry lot or can they forage freely 24/7?
  4. Van Denton is already talking about next Fridays system on his Facebook page.
  5. This is probably a long shot but do any of you have donkeys? We need to seed our pasture and I have no clue what to plant or where to buy the seed. Donkeys can gain weight quickly and weight gain can kill them so I am trying to find people that have donkeys and hear what they use.
  6. We are up to 33.1 and the ice is melting but the trees are still weighted down a bit. Our power just went off and on twice a few minutes ago.
  7. Up to 33° here and looks like it's probably over according to radar.
  8. So will the rain lower temps at all? Or is that cold air from the north still supposed to push down? Wondering if I can dump all of this water out that I've put in jugs all over the place (we are on a well so when we lose power, we lose water). My temp is now up to 36.
  9. They keep lowering our forecasted low. Showing a low of 23 now.
  10. I spoke too soon. Temp is dropping pretty fast now. 34/23 now.
  11. What site do you rely on for current conditions? TWC has me currently at 35°, NWS has me at 40° and Accuweather has me at 40°.
  12. Got the camper pulled up to the house. Our house is on a well so when we lose power we lose water. Got the water and propane tanks to the camper all filled up so we can have it as backup. It also has solar power. Hoping we don't have to use it but thankful we have it if we do.
  13. All the way up to 40/22. Southern Stokes County (Walnut Cove). We are a 3 miles from the Duke Power power plant and I swear the steam from the stacks makes it warmer here.
  14. Yes. We have already started calling all of our Thursday morning patients to change their visits to video visits or reschedule.
  15. I have already ordered 2 more. Another one for myself and one for my daughter and her husband. Our reading got up to 226 on our carbon monoxide detector. The fire department said that was extremely high.
  16. We had to evacuate our house Sunday due to carbon monoxide from our kerosene heater Sunday. Our carbon monoxide detector saved our life. So seeing the words that ice may cause damage gives me a bit of anxiety because I'm scared to use our kerosene heater now if we lose power.
  17. I don't know what is going on with their observations. Yesterday they showed us with snow. We had no snow at all.
  18. Just lost power in Walnut Cove (Southern Stokes County).
  19. Forsyth definitely got more accumulated ice than up here in Stokes County. Thankfully we've lost no trees or limbs and our power only flicked off and on a few times. All of my friends in Kernersville are posting pictures of multiple trees down.
  20. Do you think temps will rise once heavier precip moves in? That's what the hourly forecast is showing.
  21. My car is reading 29° here in Stokes County. I just called my daughter and told them to keep their phones on charge. She is due to give birth to their first baby any day now and I'm stressing that she will go into labor tonight.
