…we've had some pretty high winds here lately as well, and cold too: - 15 to -20°F, plus wind chill.  Am just glad the roofs are still on the barns & sheds :D :D. Here's a pic from a couple of days ago.  All the best, Rob.

17 below last night, more snow today. I had to pull more snow off the roof this week as my shop has a 10' cantilever out over the mill area. It was designed for our area snowload but still made me nervous.

DGDrls, llamas are doing ok but I think they've had about enough of this cold. We feed extra grain and alfalfa when it gets this cold. They got a little spoiled a few weeks ago, when Vogue Magazine came up from NYC and used them for a fashion shoot. Got a lot of attention for 2 days and everyone wanted to feed them grain. Now they're world famous, appearing on in both video and still shots. Hopefully, it doesn't go to their head  :D !

I hate to brag but it was at least 12 degree Celsius today with full sun. I took the dog for a hike in my shorts and t-shirt, sorry to say but snow would be a nice change as the winters here we don't see much snow.
