BarnDoorWe're getting typical weather for a nice January in Maine--50s and rain. Last year at this time, it was -24° and we have 49 inches of snow on the ground. You just can't make sense of it. How windy is it? It's so windy that the back door of my barn fell off. I went out to do my evening chores, and I saw that it was hanging by one roller and twisting in the wind. It took a solid hour of wrestling before I was able to get it back into place.

Barn emergencies are the worst. There's nothing to do but fix them right then and there. You can't leave it for tomorrow because something could happen to a horse. And I'm down to one horse out there already.

It's all fixed now. I did my chores and tied the doors shut. Typical.
