IT IS COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Many parts of the United States are waking up in bitter cold temperatures with air temps and wind chill temps in the negative. Since the new year began, cold temps have been the story here. Never mind the fact that it is winter, but it is bone chilling cold. We were under a wind chill advisory the last few days and it has went into effect again, I believe.

Living on a hobby farm makes this cold even more unbearable because animal water containers have to be unfrozen and refilled, extra precautions are taken to keep them warm, and just feeding can be a real issue due to fingers and toes becoming so cold. My father in law likes to feed the animals here, but I hate for him to be out in this crazy cold weather.

Luckily, we don't have much snow but it is still miserably cold. Our water pipes seem to freeze easily so I have had our water running for most of the last week so the water bill will certainly be increased. I have saved as much of it as I have been able to in order to not be wasteful, but I have certainly not been able to save it all. 

A few tips to survive this cold are to be sure to bundle up. Layers of clothing are the best way to keep warm and allow your body to not get frostbite. Cover hands, feet, face, and ears. Gloves, earmuffs, hats, and plenty of warm socks and shoes or boots. To not allow yourself to be out for long periods of time is another important item. Within a few minutes of being in this crazy weather, go back inside to get warm and let those important body parts get warm and a break from the cold to avoid frostbite. 

For those affected by this cold artic air, stay inside as much as possible and bundle up! No one wants to lose body parts to this cold. It will be spring soon enough and this cold snap will be gone. Take care and stay warm!
