Hay! Winter is here.

Winterizing Florence is a lot of work! Now she is all tucked in for the winter.

Thanks a million to my student, Emily, who introduced me to my down-the-road neighbor, Derrick, who delivered a dozen bales of hay to insulate the bottom of Florence! Living out in the country sure does turn up a lot of friendly and helpful folks.

The hay is natural insulation, and should cut down on the drafts and cold from blustering underneath the trailer.

I’m surprised that the bales were EXACTLY the right dimension and slid under Florence perfectly. I am also surprised at how much a bunch of dried grass weighs.

Thanks a million to Emily and Derrick!
