    And that is exactly how I felt after morning chores.

    nicely done. -19F last night here. I wonder if this is one of the last scenes of "Shining".

    Freezing our backsides off in NC too. Had a -1 wind chill this morning. I just thought that a little humor would help.

    Wow! Your side of NC is quite balmy! :D We were rejoicing yesterday when the actual temps got up to zero. I have no idea what the wind chill was.

    Our chickens weren't phased in the least. They came scrambling out when we opened the pop door like it was just another day. Chickens are the best!

    We plan to retire on the Western side. It is still a few years off, but we keep making the plans. Mary loves the Asheville area, but we haven't decided exactly where yet.
