The thermometer is reading twenty below zero this morning. Sounds like with wind chill it may be closer to thirty below in the hills, about as cold as it is in town. Tonight's forecast calls for thirty to fourty below zero in town and twenty below in the hills. The highs for the week are around ten below zero. Brr.
I exchanged the regular light bulb in the top chicken coop with a heat lamp yesterday. I'm thinking of doing the same for both goat stalls tonight. Other than that, Dustin did all the farm chores before leaving for work this morning. I have no plans to leave the house except to take a walk and check on everyone and get eggs when Avery takes her afternoon nap. Thankfully the woodstove has been keeping the house in the seventies during the day without any help from the Monitor Heater. Sounds like a good day for some bread baking.
