Oh boy, the National Weather Service says the temperature is 11 degrees outside right now! And that’s not counting wind chill!

I have to say that I was more than a little worried about the chicks last night. When I went to check on them last night, they were all smashed into one corner of the coop.

But I just fed them and they seem none the worse for wear. I am so thankful.

    Yep, it certainly is blustery out there! I’m telling on myself, but up until maybe 5 years ago, I thought people were saying windSHIELD, not wind chill! I would be like, “wow! it’s 16 degrees with a windshield of -4” I just thought that’s how cold everyones car were!! LOL- and, yes, I am a natural blonde! :D

    noel writes-well, no fair about the cool whip, I mean it was by the potato bar. Who would’ve thought they’d put cool whip over there!
