It Be Cold

In the 40s last week, below zero today.  :-/

We did have clear skies all day so that was cheerful.  In the morning there was a halo around the sun from ice in the air.  (OK, it wasn't early morning and I had to block the sun with something tall - one of the trees).

It was the coldest in the barn that it's been all winter.

There's a gap in the concrete next to this post and even through the bedding pack the ground underneath was breathing out warmer, damper air which created ice crystals on the post.

Large but delicate plates and fronds of frost.

And some of the sheep had frost collected on their nose whiskers just from breathing.


Even sitting in the sun, Clem looks peeved with the temperature.

We moved old Natasha up to the shop with Kittin day before yesterday when it was clear that the temps were going to drop this much.  Being short haired and old she just can't take the cold.  Hopefully we'll shift her back down in a week or so when things warm up.

Holly was more than happy to come in and warm up after PM chores.

May we all be as comfy-cozy at the end of the day!


  1. I remember those days and I have to say I don't miss my NY days.

  2. Brrr! It drops to 40F and we're cold in Savannah. It went down to 25, and we thought we were in the proverbial H### that had frozen over. You all stay warm!

  3. Yikes! Sounds like Lori is getting hammered too and even colder. Usually the other way around I think :-o.

  4. Awww, Holly has a pillow! Don't they all love pillows! :)
