For those of you who don’t live in a frigid area, I am sending a picture of the sun dogs on either side of the sun (one is not showing in the picture because I didn’t want to walk further down the sidewalk in 40 below wind chill temps). When it’s this cold bright rainbow edged spots appear on either side of the sun – I think they’re ice crystals reflecting the light.
Went to the barn to check on everybody and discovered I have no water. Looks like the heat bulb in the pump house burned out so I replaced it and now will wait to see if the water lines and pump will thaw out. It might be too cold for a heat bulb to get ahead of the severe cold. No laundry today. Guess I’ll have to sew – started a new quilt last night.
Be very careful, everybody – this cold is life threatening!
