Like most of the upper Midwest and Northeast, we've been dealing with the Arctic weather. Limiting activities to just the basic necessaries, we've hunkered down and muddled through.
Sherm and the gang have done remarkably well, with only full-day confinement one day this week, the rest of the week's turnout being from 4-6 hours in duration. Not bad for as bitter as it has been. Heated water buckets and plenty of extra hay have kept everything running as smoothly as possible.
This morning's temps and forecast-- high of 18 with no significant windchill!-- are the best we've seen since Sunday.
