I believe our total snowfall on Sunday morning was around 4-5 inches with ice underneath it. That meant digging out by clearing the cars off, shoveling a path to the wood pile, making sure the animals were within reach, etc. That takes awhile but luckily it was not too cold. However, by 4 p.m. the strong winds that we had earlier in the day had certainly brought in the colder temperatures and it was down right cold.
Last night brought bitter cold temperatures with lows near zero and wind chills below zero most of the day. Now it is time to stay inside where it is warm. Of course, animals still need fed and cared for and we must still work, but once we are done, it is time to stay warm. Beef stew from left over roast was a quick dinner and now I will write this, hit the shower, throw a load of laundry in and be done for the day.
