Power outage, but we are prepared

We are in the first major power outage of 2012. Fortunately,  no one is suffering.  Thanks to the great deal last year on a new diesel generator,  we are able to power everything necessary.  The baby turkeys are snug under their low wattage brooder heaters safe and warm.

These heaters,  from brisnea, are great.  They pull so little electricity that it is easy to provide backup power.  I am convinced that they are better for the birds too.


We didn't loose a single baby turkey this time,  which is amazing since power was not restored until about 4 am. We actually had a fun time with the kids teaching them about oil lamps and exploring the life of those who created America.
