Water Heater

I was aiming for this. So far, I’ve ended up with this.

We are hoping to try out an insulated box for water out in the far pasture. There’s no power there, and no chance of it coming, so this is the best idea we’ve seen.

I had to work on a hot wire in the dog pen first, which didn’t seem to work great, but I was getting tired and gave up. Into town for supplies and then back home, trying to focus and concentrate on the box. I managed to get the bottom, sides, and back cut, and started the bracing to tie it together, but realized I’d missed up one measurement.

I’ve been a little cranky today, since we were supposed to snowboard, but Kendall didn’t want to go and I didn’t want to leave her here. It was also cold up there, 20F and I wasn’t sure Delaney would want to board much. After that, a constant stream of little things not going well, so when the pieces didn’t match up and I needed to adjust things, I decided to quit for the day and go run.

Feeling better now.
