    Day 1 is closing in the current temp is 98.9 but the thermostat just kicked in. Humidity is 33% water in the reserve.

    We have had a huge change in the weather. It started out at 51F this morning and was at 35F at 4pm. The wind is crazy and nearly took the roof off part of our big barn. Scarey stuff. Tonight's low expected to be about 15F.

    Same here. Extremely windy, going into teens tonight sandwiched between two 60 degree days. Sheesh.

    Brrrr, we had nice weather today mid 70s. Girls got to free range for a while. Good luck on your hatch, maybe we will get some chickies this spring from ours.
