We knew it was going to get cold today so, over the past few days, we did everything we needed to do outside. Even knowing it’s coming, it’s still a shock when it gets this cold this fast. We were out planting yesterday with shorts and short sleeves. Today . . we’re bundled up and trying to stay inside.
When we got up this morning, it was 63 degrees. Now, at 5:45 p.m., the weather station is showing 27 degrees. Accuweather says it’s 30, feels like 10, with light sleet. We have the heater running in the greenhouse, the heaters on in both chicken coops, a heat lamp on for Cat and Vince fixed up a wind block. She also can go into the shop if she wants but there’s no heater on in there. The heater is on in the sewing room for Boots and, of course, the heater is on in the house. That’s a heck of a lot of heaters running!
It’s suppose to be 21 tonight, feel like 9 — frigid according to Accuweather. I agree! Frigid in Texas . . don’t like it!
It’s been a good day to stay inside and knit, which is what I’ve done!
