Well, I know we are faring better than the midwest but our temperature is so cold here. It is a sunny day, and the current temp is 0 degrees with the wind chill of -23 according to the weather channel!
Tim and Lindsay had to go out and set up a different trough for the horses, because the heater in the one we use broke and the water is completely frozen! So on his way home from work he bought a new heater and they got it set up in record time! Tim said he could see why being out for even a short period of time is dangerous in these temperatures. He said his face was starting to hurt.
The chickens have lots of shavings for warmth and insulation in their coop and we reset the timer on the heat lamp so it would be on for their comfort. They are doing fine, and we are getting 5-7 eggs a day!
Kyle woke up sick this morning - tummy trouble - so if you'd pray for him I'm certain he'd appreciate it. It doesn't seem to be a really bad episode, so we are hopeful it is just isolated to him!
We were supposed to go to our friends house this afternoon, so Rachel and their daughter Brooke could practice a song they are playing for offertory in two weeks. But with Kyle being sick, we'll be staying home. I am not a germaphobe but I hate a stomach bug and I refuse to spread it to others.
In a way, this will slow us down and keep us relaxed and cozy in our warm house today.
Now to get to my ride. I am so thankful for the exercise bike! No wind chill for me!
