Cold Weather

Chili dogs

So it got down to -5°F (-20.5°C) this morning, with windchills down below -30°F (-34°C); not the coldest I've ever experienced but with the windchill it's pretty close.  Tonight is supposed to be even colder, with 2-4 inches of snow forecast for tomorrow.

It's interesting that the dogs don't waste any time when it's this cold, they run out to the lawn, do their business and run back inside as fast as they can.

The wind stopped blowing this afternoon and the temperature managed to climb up to 5°F (-15°C), which wasn't nearly as horrible as this morning.  The sheep, who were cuddled up in the barn last night were out and about munching on grass.  They got really excited when I came home from shopping and started running around the yard like the dogs sometimes do.  They can be so cute some times.
