Frost. Not that British talk show guy from the 60’s. Not the guy who wrote poems. No, my beef is with Jack Frost. He’s like a 007 villain. Frost JACK Frost. He gives me what I call Winter Water Woes. Dealing with frost when your water is stored outside is, well… miserable. There, I said it. It makes taking care of the livestock take SO much harder. Plus our “gypsy camp” area is devoid of electricity making it difficult to warm anything up, including humans.
Frost is a thin layer of ice on a solid surface, which forms from water vapor in an above freezing atmosphere coming in contact with a solid surface whose temperature is below freezing ~ wikipedia
Our upscale way to beat the villain Frost is by using an ice cooler. Which really sounds backwards. Aren’t we trying to NOT cool? Let’s not question this gift horse. Our handy ice chest has been our secret weapon against old Frost.
Then there is the sneaky, cheater thing I did this particular day… but you’ll have to watch the video to find out my secret squirrel tactics. Or maybe just squirrely tactics… Whatever it takes to banish Frost – I say!
