My wife came home from town a couple of hours ago. She was only in the store for a half hour and the her water bottle,which she left out in the car,was frooze when she got back.
I'm going to head out in a few minutes to check on the pigs and feed the cats. If everything is alright I should be back in the house in a few minutes. If I don't make it back tell Burrhead he can have my busted door knob collection. :-)

Well Larry, if you can get the truck started you had better head down to the WalMart and buy a bunch of blankets to wrap those pigs up and keep them warm.
Later Bob

is that how to make a pig in the blanket?

I think the pigs will do just fine as long as they don't pile up and cause a prolapsed rectum. This is one of the hazards of having pigs when it gets this cold. I had this happen to a couple of breed gilts one year when it got real cold. Not an enjoyable thing for the Vet to fix in the freezing cold. On second thought those blankets sound better all the time. :-)
