I expect Mrs ERJ will have some conversations about refrigerator space. She gives me a few shelves for my stuff and I will use every square inch of it.
Soupy dog kennels
The ground is frozen. The snow uphill of the dog kennel is melting and feeding into it. I tossed the "solid" waste, or more accurately the waste that remained solid, out of the kennel. I ran ditches out of the holes the dogs spent all summer digging. We will keep the dogs on the lines for a few days until the ice dam along the lower reach of fencing melts. It should dry out quickly after that happens.
Mrs ERJ bought eight bales of straw to carpet the kennel. Time is our friend.
