At 7 am it was - 36 degrees F
I hope my truck starts.
Photos coming later if the camera does not freeze or stick to my fingers.
Later in the morning---
Of course my truck was frozen, my cell phone froze after 12 minutes, the water hose exploded and once I finally got my truck actually started and running I discovered the gears were frozen and I had to drive in first gear, slowly, for 5 miles.
As soon as I could, I got myself down to the farm to water the cows and see how they were doing.

No matter how cold it is, Jillian and her mom Wanda are always looking for their special treats.
The hay ring was rolled into the hoop barn on Saturday so the cows could eat in a little warmer location during this extreme weather. It was a bit further to physically roll those 800lb rolls of hay to get them to the hoop barn.
I am still praying for a tractor to move the hay.
We have a "substantial amount" of snow coming Wednesday and it will be near impossible to roll the hay to the hoop barn if it gets any deeper than it is already.
For you new readers, please read about our barn fire in December.
The only tractor we had was destroyed.
As I headed to work I got to see other frosty cows out in their snowy fields eating their hay and soaking up some sun.
The famous round barn and their famous herd of Holsteins:
I hope you and all your animals made it through this extreme weather.
It will all be a very distant memory in July when it is 99 degrees.
