Down go the temps! Coldest air of the season is on the way. Tonight, 16 below! Today's wind chill, 35 below.
My thoughts and prayers are with the wildlife—especially the opossums and pheasants who are not native to cold weather climes. I am so glad we decided to leave the three large brush piles until spring as they provide excellent shelter for both mammals and birds. Fresh open water, as well as seed and corn, plus natural foodstuffs, are also available here so hopefully my outdoor friends will weather this two-day frigid spell.
