Bitter Cold

We've had some really long stretches of grey this January. Cloud cover is the norm here next to the big lake. It gets old after a while to look at this, day in and day out.

So sometimes we change up the scenery a bit, adding falling snow to the grey. We've had a lot of days where we think we're inside a just-shaken snow globe.

But every once in a while the sun pokes through the clouds and blinds us.

It's wonderful! But without the cloud cover, our temps drop. This past weekend our thermometer read -15 degrees F.

Almost makes you wish for some cloud cover again.

We're glad the temps have moderated again, just in time for the start of lambing.


  1. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! My teeth are chattering at your gray temps!!!

  2. Susan, ours were chattering as well. This was unusually cold for us, and we're fine with not seeing temps like this again soon.

  3. So now it looks like it might change up and dump snow on us again!
