Brutal Cold

Down here in the South we just don't see this kind of weather and especially not at a sustained pace. The entire month of December has been cold. Temps ranging from the teens to the thirties every night. We are going through the wood like crazy in our wood stove. This morning went down to 14 and had to light up the big daddy stove that runs us out of the house pretty quick. It jumped 10 degrees in the house in less than 30 minutes with running the big stove. Which is why we don't use it very often. Tonight the temp is to dip down to 9. I don't know that I have ever seen it go that low before. Glad Scott is home from work over the next four days to help with all the cold weather stuff. Was worried about the chickens last night but like little troopers they are all out there eating and scratching around. I think I am ready for Spring to come.
