Cold Days, Colder Nights

It’s been a chilly February so far with many nights down into the negative double digits. We’ve had -28, -30, -34 and that is without windchill. The days have warmed up into the low double digits some days but at least those are above zero degrees.  We’ve had some nasty windchills too, here’s what we’re looking forward to today!
