These temps are crazy cold for us today. Had to the heat on in the house, add extra heat lamps to the brooders too. Tonight I get to cover my tropical plants so we don't suffer loses. None of the animals have skipped a beat today though. Ducks and geese splashing, chickens running all over. Glad we only deal with a few really cold days each year.

We are supposed to get to 21, and we are just up the road a bit.
I hate losing the citrus. It had no chilling hours to get it hardy.
It was in the nineties before Christmas, and now the plants get slammed.

I'm from "Up North", I think you all have our winter down there. It was 56 deep in Northern Maine yesterday. I walked from the hot tub to the house I was at in my bikini, not to do the hot/cold thing, but because it was so warm I didn't need to put my fleece pants & down jacket back on after I got out.
I would be very bummed about the citrus trees. Heck, I AM really bummed - I love my Florida oranges. I pray for good weather for you all & for us to FINALLY get some snow.

Today was fun. Up at 7 and walked out in my sleeping shirt and shorts like i do to feed the ducks and forgot about the cold. Ran and dumped the food in the pen and ran back inside lol. They are all enjoying it though!
