26 Dec

After waking up to -20*F on Christmas Eve morning, we’ve seen a huge rebound in temperatures.

The sun was out in full force today.

By afternoon, the snow was melting off the barn’s tin roof.

MJ even came out to soak up some rays, and Maxine is missing her big hunk of beef.

It’s been the nicest day we’ve seen in a long time!

Tomorrow is supposed to be nice too, but we’re back to frigid temperatures by Sunday.
