Cold Weather

Flash Frozen Poultry

Monday morning it got so cold (-11°F, -24°C) that a hawk froze to death.  I'd seen the body out there but wasn't sure what it was.  Today I finally got around to checking it out.  Judging by where I found it, it had been perched on the peak of the barn when it froze and fell to the ground.  It's a solid lump now and quite well embedded into the ice.  I'm surprised the dogs haven't tried gnawing on it yet.
