Soup Kind of Day

15 bean soup is on the menu tonight as well as cornbread and it is the perfect type of day for it. The high was at about 8 a.m. today and it was 29 degrees Fahrenheit. An Artic cold front has since moved in and the wind is a bitter cold that almost tears you in two when it is blowing. I am thankful that I am inside and do not have to be out much today. The lows tonight are to be around zero and wind chills are to be around 15-20 below zero. That is cold! Frigid is the word that I would use to describe the weather when the wind chills and temps are like that.

A light layer of snow has fallen and only makes the air seem colder. I was able to go out earlier and tend to the animals some. Our outside dog, Bandit now has plenty of hay in his house to keep him warm and the ducks and rabbits are able to get in out of the cold as well. We use hay in the buildings just to be sure that they have something to protect them from the weather. We have hay, usually in abundance, so we use it for the animals housing as well.

It is just the type of day to stay in, drink something warm, and stay warm. Soup may be the menu for the first part of the week. I am thinking a good potato soup would be a pleasant experience tomorrow. Stay warm!.
