Ya'all can keep it, or send it back north, or wherever it came from... Brr. No thanks.
Not that I haven't experienced it before, but I'm older now.

God bless all of the ranchers and farmers that still have to function in all sorts of weather.

 

We'll be praying for your protection, machinery that cooperates, and healthy animals!

That is downright COLD!!!!

I assume that is not normal for you this time of year?  We have been above and below normal so far this year, but no where near that cold though, and still no snow.

 Yeah Bud, we're getting the same down here, just not quite as cold. Lows 0*F to -5*F. Highs in the midteens. We got a half inch snow last nite.

I hope your cattle pull though this well.. It's been tough up here also on animals.. lots of frozen water lines to deal with.. The ole gal next door has had nothing but troubles. Her husband didn't burry the water lines deep enough when he set up the farm..

Cabin fever before you even leave for the cabin. It's a new record!

 

The weather in Montana has made the news here, hope it lets up real soon.
