The Escapees Ranch - Lakewood, NM

Tuesday, December 6, 2011
The Escapees Ranch - Lakewood, NM 5 degrees’ and sunny to 23 degrees’ and sunny. The snow stopped sometime over night with dawn breaking into a sunny cold day with our water line frozen.

Ice on Buster
Mens coffee at the Ranch House today Ron went to Artesia for doughnuts, in the cold snowy morning and was back by eight-thirty. Then a water committee meeting for me, mostly talking about the cold and frozen water hoses and pipes. Then later we went to Artesia for propane gas and Walmart. I use two portable tanks one normal twenty pound (needed filling) and a thirty pound so as to not use the main tank installed in Buster. Busters’ installed tank is full, and will be used if needed.
Look what Silver Sally has to step in
When we returned the temperature out side was over twenty and our left neighbor was outside to tell me there had been water gushing from Buster. Turns out the water filter in the compartment froze and broke out the bottom. The short hose the water in connection was also frozen. I removed them both then the water worked fine. I had purchased a small heater for that compartment while at Walmart.
Windmill Vista looking east
The five of us played Mexican Train dominos' George & Bonnie and Don and Doris with a visitor Audrey joining the game. Girls against Boys, tonight Girls win, when the boys go out one of the girls remaining tiles is not counted, the score sheet is only counting two against two.
