Looks like another 6F this morning. Be leaving early for a grocery run. I think it's warm in here again, maybe it's the coffee. :)

We have about 1/2" of snow on the ground here in Kansas. The temperature dropped so quickly the wheat had no chance to get used to it.  My wheat is tiny but up, wonder how much winter kill we will have.  My calf pen is watered with a tank, just add fresh water to melt the ice, cows drink from the pond, and it is frozen over, so go down and cut a hole with an axe.  Most winters don't require much ice cutting. I am unrolling a bale of alfalfa every day for the cows, they clean up every leaf.  Give them some prairie hay in bale feeders, they all seem to handle the cold well as long as they have wind breaks and bedding.
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

-40°   :o   Yikes!!!!
I had -3 by the time I went out this morning. Turned into a nice day at around the mid 20's. Than about noon time, the clouds came in and the wind picked up. There went that nice day. Looks like singles at night, mid 20's for a while. I guess this is our winter weather now.

-18° this morning with the wind it felt like -42°. Being outside doing chores was miserable. Could feel the cold air coming thru the walls of the house this morning. Never got about -4 all day.

Amasa which is about an hour inland from here at -33° actual temp with a windchill on top of that.

When we went to town, it was colder down there by 10F. -6F down there, you could easily tell the difference in the temperature. I dressed in wool, head to foot, and threw in a pair of Wells Lamont Thinsulate gloves. Never know when an old 17 year car is going to stop, but she never let me down yet. knock on wood. We're not getting the biting cold up here on the ridge, the low spots are 10-20 degrees colder than here. Up at the woodlot is always colder than here, lower ground.

That -40F is dang cold, had a few of them back in the 70's and 80's. Had a -50 in 2008, which was plenty thank you, that's serious. :D Been watching a young couple in Alaska that do the Youtube thing, hasn't been much colder than here, but I don't think they are real far inland. You get in some of them remote valleys up there in the interior and I bet it is severe cold. Looks like parts of Alaska has bad beetle infestations, killed a lot of nice spruce up there around Anchorage. Of course that could mean a lot of land in a certain radius up there. Anything from flat to mountain side. :D They need some of that -40F to kill the overwintering bugs, keep'm in check. Freeze dried beetle in the cereal?  ;D

-1 here this morning. I might and I said I might trust my cars, but you never know when another one can hit you and you are in the cold at -1. I always carry heavy stuff in my truck. Got enough for the other guy too.  ;D

was 12F here this mornin. They are saying -6 on sunday mornin. plus  suppose to get 15" of snow sunday night thru monday....... i have a heater in the tank for the critters. my live stock guardian dogs are funny. I made them a nice bedded area in one of the mobile huts and they prefer to lay outside.....

coldest i ever experienced was growing up on the farm. it was -47F, wasn't windy. coldest with wind-chill was another time, -77F. silo unloaders almost always decided to break when it was really cold. now that wasn't fun..... i froze my hands once spreading manure. i had mittens on, but didn't matter. had no choice but to finish and clean the spreader off or else a big mess the next day. cold bothered me for 20 years or so with my hands, now not an issue.

Was 5F here this morning, but suppose to dip down tonight. I've heard that before out of Presque Isle weather and had no change, we'll see. We're due for a dip. ;D  But I was walking today in the wind, wool head to foot, never felt cold. I wear goggles to keep that cold wind out of my eyes to. They are UV protection to. If I heat up too much, and there's no breeze, this goggles are useless, they steam up. :D I certainly can heat up, in sunshine, climbing them hills on the road if it's into the teens. That wool coat will block some real bad cold. It ain't one of them cheap thin things from India. I wove and sewed it.  :D ;D

5F this morning here and they said 2F for in town on the radio. Heat wave up here. :D Snow squalls are moving in, after they said no snow until Sunday. More accurate looking out across the landscape/sky than on a computer model. :D :D :D :D

My old Pediatric ED partner Justin just came and got the 4 stock tank heaters I could find, to keep his water feature from freezing the pipes.  I am quite proud to have more in stock than TSC.  needs to keep water moving in front of the skimmers.
