How cold was it today?
It was so cold (and wet) that it resembled Seattle.
It was so cold (and wet) that the horses looked like waterlogged chickens.
It was so cold (and wet) that Bates Creek has picked up enough in volume to resemble a small river.
It was so cold (and wet) that the Owyhee mountains got another layer of snow.
It was so cold that the rain sometimes fell as icesleetsnowballs.
It was so cold and wet and muddy and windy that the horses got wild hairs up their nostrils and took to running and bolting and sliding in the mud.
It was so cold that Dudley got to stay out and eat hay all day.
