Cold weather last week made for some record temperatures, the likes of which I hope to never see again. Thank goodness for warm fires to keep us toasty. The outside animals had icy whiskers for a few days and everyone was happy to see the thermometer reach above 20 on Sunday, which made it 30 degrees warmer than Saturday. Spring is now only 60 days away.
