The snow has been here for a week, and we have managed to eek out the water supply for seven frozen days. Today we managed to thaw out the pump and by using a new piece of pipe filled the reservoir to the house.
This was useful for many reasons, not least of which was the luxury of flushing toilets.
The animals are coping well with the cold, the horses seem to like eating the ice off the water trough. The piglets are getting by on a combination of cuteness and bravado, they seem to be an endless source of fascination for the Berners.
