    You're welcome.

    This can all be attributed to the fact that I bought bantam chicks last week. Then, we went to the feed store and bought 3 more, plus 5 ducklings.

    Now they're all in my living room. [​IMG]

    I'm in the SoCal high desert....not too far from you (a few hours anyway). I agree!! This low is chilly!! Our high was 59, but not sure what we actually got up to. It was WINDY too!! Our low tonight is 29 plus a windchill factor of several degrees. I like big, fuzzy blankets!

    ETA: No complaints though!! I love winter!!! It's our first frost advisory this season. [​IMG]

    I turned off the circulation fan in the coop. I want them to stay warm enough to keep laying!

    We had half a day of blowing winds yesterday. I hear Tucson had the same.

    Today was still blowing, but no dirt, thank goodness.

    How about you guys?

    It's a balmy 34*, no wind. There is a low fog which is pretty cool. the ground is shrouded in fog but the moon is rather clear. An interesting and beautiful effect.

    Haven't seen camelback in a number of years. I have a butte behind my house that reiminds me a bit of that mountain.

    We had cold and blowing wind for most of the day.... right out of the north and west.

    Got the pool cleaned...we'll see how it looks in the morning.

    Yes, don't do your chunky dunking with dirt in the pool. Chafe city.

    (I originally wrote "chucky dunking". I debated whether or not to correct it because it made me laugh.)
