How cold is it?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am SO glad I noticed this balaclava when we were at the TSC Country store this week. We are having BIZARRE ARCTIC temperatures. The wind chill has us below -40’C – for two days straight! Poor Paco was shivering this morning when I went out. I don’t know if he stood outside one of the barns watching over ‘his girls’ … ? I’ve been out every few hours since. The ‘heated’ water buckets froze up (topped up too high). I took out a bucket of water to the barns and everyone was ready for a good long drink. I added grain to this morning’s carrot breakfast and plan on taking out the same treat tonight. I think it will be an active night for me!
