It began to grow cold this morning and I went to work and made shelves in the cellar and moved our canned fruit from the wood shed down where I think it will not freeze. I put the potatoes down also and made a door to the cellar way. Taught this afternoon. Went over to the store after school and learned that the stove had come. It is freezing hard tonight and I dug what potatoes I raised this year, about ½ or 2/3 bushel and put in the cellar. Fred Neill was here and spent the evening.
