It’s Cold Outside

7 Dec

The topics for this week’s Scavenger Hunt:  Where I Stood, Silver, Tiny, In the Cupboard, and Shadow

It was -8*F when I got up this morning.  From where I’m standing (or where I stood) that’s way too cold!  I had to break ice off the cattle tank this morning.

Everyone was inside trying to stay warm.  At least there was no wind when Minnie peeked out from the silver Quonset hut.

I made sure there was food for the wild birds.  This one is in the cupboard, waiting for its turn to be hung outside.

There were all kinds of tiny spikes of frost on the leaves.

The shrubs in front of the house were really covered in frost.

When I checked Stella’s water, it had frost around the heated bucket from condensation.  I think the water drop was frozen there.

Then I looked north.  Can you guess who I saw?  She’s still out of focus, but I kind of liked this picture.

Maxine was done complaining about the cold.  She looked pretty content grazing.

Norma Jean was close behind her.  It looks like it’s just her and her shadow out there in the field.

Hopefully, we’ll get back to some more normal temperatures, if that actually exists anymore.
