I'm being sarcastic. It's horrible. A few minutes before 10:00 a.m., we are now up to negative 13 degrees Fahrenheit.
On the positive side, both of the cars started this morning (Barry keeps the Jeep plugged in to an engine block heater in the winter, and the Concorde fits in the garage). And when I checked on my chickens, though I feared I would find 4 little bundles of frozen chicken meat, instead I found 4 feathery bundles of heat, nestled down in the straw. They were hungry, and their water had frozen even with the electric heater I keep underneath it, so I gave them fresh warm water and a lot more food and some more straw. And then I closed them up cozy again and left them on their own.
I thank God for our furnace every time I think of it! I complain about it and am always thinking about replacing it, but hey, it's working. Our house is warm and safe. Thank God.
