Wow!! We can't get out of the village for sheet ice today. All on an extra day's holiday and loving it!! The temp is -5 C and we are struggling to keep the water unfrozen for the animals - I appreciate all the talk of heated waterers now. This is so unusual for us but it is nice to have no rain - I just hope none of us falls and breaks a bone - I have been banned from our path for that reason!! Not sure when it will thaw but we have enough food for now!
