Lori HavensHere in the beautiful Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin, particularly in our city, Richland Center, there is just a dusting of snow. But three hours to our north and west, a nasty 5 to 8 inches of heavy snow and ice took direct aim at our poultry processor, and hit just a few hours before we were to take off with a trailer-load of future Thanksgiving "Centers of Attraction."

Lori, the frigid winter blast has hit Nebraska as well. The last seven days have had highs of middle 20s with single digit lows at night and winds chills well below zero. Winter's here to stay and it's going to be long and cold. Hopefully, the prediction of 40s will happen in a couple more days. Life on the homestead has many unexpected challenges to overcome. Have a the best turkey survival mode day that you can.
