The water barrel was frozen, and it needed to be drained. Yes, I had a helper. I had to talk her down from the warmth of the aquarium light. Can you spot her?! She came in, cold from her morning hunting, and wanted to get warm.
Once I did my workout, I thought I'd get her to help me.
First step: empty the rest of the water. Normally, the excess water drains into the goldfish pond. I have a hose, with a brick on the end. I chucked it into the trees, where it merrily drained.
Next, take it apart. Yup, ice in the bottom. I store it beside the air conditioner. Daisy had to inspect it!
We did well! After this we went walkies. Then the snow fell! Last night and this morning, Saturday, it rained. We still have some snow.
