Baby, it’s Cold Outside!

2 Feb

At the moment, it is 24°, and sunny. Much nicer than the wind chill in the minus range we’ve been having. The birds have been sailing through the seed we put out, and the foxes have been coming closer to the house in the evening, looking for food. It snowed yesterday and Thursday, so I put corn in the back forty (the area behind the barn) for the deer, but this morning I saw a gazillion blackbirds out there, instead. Better there than down here.

    It is currently 50 outside at ten o’clock– we are supposed to get up to 60 today. During the deep freeze, we were below zero with the wind chill of 30 below. It is like we got the January thaw in February. I can remember when I was teaching out where you are and Baltimore schools had “winter break” in January to conserve energy. However, every time they had their break there was a January thaw.

      It was 68 here yesterday. We came home and hung the clothes on the line. It’s almost 50 now, and is supposed to go up to nearly 60 again tomorrow. And yes, I remember those “Winter Breaks”. They never did seem to hit the proper weather. I don’t think they do them any more.
