Why do you punish yourself living in such a harsh place?Its been between _20 and minus 35 for weeks now. With the wind chill it would be more like minus 40 or 50. One day it warmed up to minus 5 and the wind blew like crazy. Filled my corrals up with a glacier. The 12 by 5 foot picture window in my living room broke. The sparrows dropped dead from their roosts in my barns and out buildings.
Alternater went in my water truck and the fan motor went in my bale truck so I had no heater in either truck through this. Just to get stuff started and running in this was a big deal. Propane freezes BTW.
Yes, propane freezes just don't try thawing out a torch inside by the woodstove. I had a neighbor that did that one winter in hopes of unthawing his pipes and he had the valve open and once it started to unthaw, it blew the large glass front windows out of his log cabin and set the place on fire. Luckily his wife got out with minor burns. Despite several neighbors with large fire extinguishers, the place burned to the ground. The fire district water truck froze up by the time it got there. It was 20 below.
