winter coat for 10 cents

i just scored a winter coat for ten cents ... well, the winter coat itself cost 10 cents ... throw in some gas and a few incidentals and it cost 20 dollars ... but still, excellent coat for 20 dollars ... polar star ... it's not the super high end line that google images pulls up ... but perfect for me.

according to wunderground there is an 80 percent chance of snow both tonight and tomorrow here at the ranch ...

the timing could not have been better ... last week i got the winter boots and lined work gloves ... then today i got the winter coat ...

so the test for my winter clothes will be tomorrow morning ... there is a good chance that i will be breaking the ice at the drinking tank while in the snow ...

do people use ski pants when it gets much below zero? ... it's not forecast to do that tonight, but it might be something to consider getting for later ... something i could put on over jeans ... or some wool socks ... hmmm ... or a face mask ...

can you imagine it being so cold that you need a face mask? ... i did that -25 F in the east mountains a couple years back ... there, it lasted for one day ... here, i am told, it was -25 F for two weeks.

i think i will also go find where papa cat is sleeping and see what i can do to make him a warm bed and to protect him from coyotes ... i already hear those bastards howling.
