dear members of TOM -
thank you all for your good wishes and messages. we personally were very lucky in mcdonald county. six to nine inches. even as close as joplin, mo (about 30 miles away) they had twice as much fall from the sky. I-44 the major highway which runs across this part of the country, is closed between joplin and springfield mo. they closed it down at midnight last night. and according to the latest predictions ... tonight and TOMorrow night we go into the deep freeze -3 to 0 degrees fahrenheit when the sun does down.
glad we don't have sheep.
would be hard pressed to find them at the moment.
chickens very happy with their new electric heater, however.
