Ten Below

Thursday December 10 2009

It doesn't often get to -10* F here on the creek in Owyhee.

The horses don't seem to mind despite the ice crystal blanket on their thick coats and whiskers and eyelashes.


  1. It was minus 3 at my home NE of Flagstaff, Arizona, today. There was hoar frost on their water troughs; must be from the heaters keeping the water drinkable.

  2. We were minus 18 on Monday morning. Much warmer today...6 degrees with a chinook wind blowing from the west :)

  3. Its been about 12 below at night/morning recently :( It wouldn't be THAT bad, but the heat is out at our house, so it is about 35 degrees their right now, and is getting colder every day... Brrrrrrrrrrrrr

  4. yup. ,, that;s plum balmy compared to here in montana

    yikes is right
    cid and gazi

  5. Oh, crap. I wish we could get up to 10 below. We've been down to -40 and beyond, and it ain't even Xmas yet. I'm thinking January might be bikini season.
