Crikey it’s cold

So much for lettuce from the hoophouse.   A brisk northwest wind swept the snow clouds away overnight, and the temperature plunged.  This morning it is barely 6°F with a bitter wind; with the wind chill it is about -7°  a long plunge down from yesterday’s high of 32°F!  When I went to move my car for Dan to leave this morning my car door was nearly frozen shut.  BRRRRR!

EVENING UPDATE:  When we checked the min/max thermometer this evening, the temperature had dropped during the day to 5°F.  Yowza, it was a cold day today.  The chooks seemed fine despite the cold, although they made a beeline this morning for the Hendome.

    I can’t believe how cold it was yesterday! It felt a lot more like mid-January than it did early December. Sorry about the lettuce, but hope you’re getting some of this beautiful snow as a consolation prize.
