We woke up to sub-zero temperatures this morning and a two hour “dangerous temperature” delay for school. Three below 0 (Fahrenheit). Wind chills around -20.
We passed Brrrr… Extra Frigid…. and Extra Frosty about 20 degrees ago. I’m sipping hot tea like my life depends on it.
Funny thing- I don’t think my kids really even feel it? As my daughter pulled on her cat-themed sweater tights this morning under a turquoise tulle skirt, she argued that she didn’t need to wear a stocking hat. It might clash with her hot pink sunglasses. Oh to be a 5yr old fashion expert! Truly, we pick our battles with this one.
Hats, gloves, and coats are required this morning! Beautiful sunshine is doing little to counteract the freezer blast blowing from the north.
Today the cattle are being driven the four miles back to the farm from the hills.
We don’t actually ‘drive’ them. They walk. We don’t push or get aggressive. The mamas know the path. Their bellies sway as they plod down the dirt roads. The babies push along in slow groups or stick close to their mamas.
90 minutes of slow and steady. They are back for the winter.
