  • I am also north west of Dallas. Got down to -3. I have lived here my entire life. I have never plowed snow. Until now. I had to just use the bucket on my tractor and push snow off the driveway and roadways around our house. The others with land around us did the same. The small community pulled our resources and got it done. We keep a pantry full of food. We have 25 lbs each of beans and rice. We melted snow on the fire to flush toilets. We have a lot of water on hand. We were ready. It never lasts more than a few days, here and this was no different.

  • Do you have a recommendation for a high end first aid kit? We have been talking about getting one also... With Dan cutting wood, and also doing chores... you never know when something will happen. and its not if it happens , its WHEN it happens..... We have a small first aid kit.. but we need something better ! I was heating a bag of broccoli in the microwave one day. When it was ready I took it out and the bag Burst open... hot steam and boiling water landed on my leg.. and gave me 2nd degree burns...it took 6 months for the burns to heal properly .... that's horrible !!! a first aid kit is needed for home and farm !!! anything can happen no matter how careful you are.. accidents happen !!!

  • We like Dallas, Texas, were hit hard by the large amount of snow (for Austin, Texas) and the power outages that followed. We lost power on Monday but still had gas and water. On Thursday, we had the power come on but lost water service. We never lost gas. That was the most useful utility. We could cook and melt snow to flush the toilets. The power was the worse when the house got to 48--52 degrees inside. Lots of clothes and covers helped as well as the gas logs (even though they are fairly useless-- poorly installed chimney won't draw, so is really useless for wood fire. We finally got water Sunday afternoon. We were somewhat prepared so as to stay safe, fed and able to weather the issues. We had two power packs but realized the smaller Goal Zero wasn't strong enough to run some items that were vulnerable. We have now ordered the next to largest Goal Zero and will be able to solve some of the issues we had should we go through another storm like this. Neighbors helped neighbors. We kept the phones and iPads charged for two of the single ladies. And we grilled and smoked meat we were able to share, rather than let spoil. In return, one neighbor shared he load of sheep manure that will go into my garden and the other connected us with a friend that lost no utilities who allowed us to shower at his business as well as filled up our various containers with 20 gallons of well water. We also provide some of our extra food to a young couple that was caught unprepared. They definitely learned some lessons, but were willing and able to get them through the issues. Other things that helped us pass time was an old transistor radio and boardgames that helped us pass the time. I, as a lifelong Texas) know how to live with two months of temperature over 100 degrees than what we went through. But, with some extra preparation, we will be better off in the future. Sorry for the long Texas disaster tale. Joy Giles

  • To Dharri [which has a fake youtube site that you cannot respond to]: I commented about spending excessive money on a skid steer, for snow removal and he/she replied: "A skid steer is more versatile in terms of working around the homestead getting other things done when it's not snowing. You get your money's worth from a single investment" To reply, I say again, that's true if you have extra money laying around, but then he has excavator for that [if he can run it that well] which works better on a hill, as I have one also. But the other consideration is that people give their hard earned money to help them, and they should be frugal with those funds. Like finish & improve the property, barn, and other started projects. This can be done during the summer, and an auction bought box dump can help.

  • Amazing job on the house, love your vlogs! Thanks for the advice on being prepared! I'm not off-grid but I have a well, septic, and oil heat and COVID definitely brought about some challenges when we couldn't get certain supplies we needed. I've learned now to keep 3 months worth of certain supplies on hand for unexpected emergencies. It's a bit of an adjustment to make sure I always keep enough supplies around but since doing this it has already proven to be necessary a time or two.

  • that back up to a back up to a back up plan attitude is what makes the difference. Y'all are doing this right. Having lived in South Fla back in the 50's & 60's before all the hurricane forecasting, we always stocked up, had a generator and gas. Had lots of charcoal for the BBQ and a camping stove. Today I have a camp stove and a gas grill so I can be prepared for a power lost. and Lots of Coffee.

  • If you mark where the roofline(front and back) falls onto the ground(with the snow), then make that a snow removal area as well. this will be an area you will run the snow blower(away from the house) to get the snow away front and rear of the house. Add to this plan; a walk of the area to remove anything that would keep you from removing that snow(before it starts snowing). with the roof pitch changed, you only have to use one of those snow removal poles(as seen the on SEworld) instead of getting on the roof. Also write down these "Improvements on your position" on a Go to list, so you get to them. Also maybe start looking at a 5 or 10 ton dump with a blade for your next plow(Make sure you mark it Not For Hire)

I used a grain shovel for mulch and composite for over 20 years and for the 1st time used as a snow shovel. Large plastic (or fiberglass) scoop and relatively dry snow (super unusual )

  • You are doing phenomenal. If you can get ahold of a skid loader with snow blower, you will be SO glad you did. My dad has a snow blower mounted on a 50 horse wheel tractor. He's had it for almost 35 years. He did buy it new but it has been so handy. I remember when I still lived at home, we had a really big snow in 1992. When all the plow pickups couldn't handle the deep powder and deep drifts, that snow blower cut thru it all! We were rescuing neighbors with that thing. I drove the tractor a mile to the neighbors and cleared their whole drive and parking area in about a half hour. I know you have about 3 miles to cover but that thing would work wonders for you. And it will throw the snow out of the way so you won't have a big plow bank to fight or risk snow drifting deeper.

Lots of people in Canada melt snow everyday for water, for many it is normal. Topical Xocane or Novocain is a must for any first aid kit, and is sold behind the counter without a prescription.

I’ve been watching you build the low roofs knowing you were going to have that problem with the snow. Now you are talking about taking the porch down ,if it was mine I would level the roof by taking it off then build a second level porch bringing the roof up to the roof of the house then you would have a perfect place to come out and enjoy the weather all year round

  • I know you have been thinking of it but a roof on the front of the shop, high enough for 3 vehicles would be good so the plough, Cedar and the kids trucks could be snow free first thing and save time first thing. Just a thought. Also in Europe where there is a lot of snow fal a low frame on the rood edge is used to stop heavy breakaways of snow coming down.

Lockdowns and lack of control of movements and basic freedoms. People loosing their livelyhood and way of dueing business. Lose of family and friends. Crazy weather, and stress. Humanity is in state of shock and trauma. Their isn't a soul on earth, that hasn't been affect some how since this pandemic started. Many people have learned to adapt. While others are frozen in deep trauma. We all need guildness in one area or another. Learning to be flexible with our expectations and abilities. Thank you again, for your advise, wisdom of experience and sharing your ups and downs. By sharing, what you've done, what changes your planning, I'm sure you have helped many out here in cyberland, pick up the pieces of their life and see the light at the end of the tunnel. You are a man of compassion, faith, a true leader and teacher. YOU ARE ONE OF G-DS ANGELS ON EARTH. G-D Bless you and family, Stay Safe, and Stay Warm.
