    Temp is 32 this morning, and I was somewhat surprised to see a skim of ice on my pond. Guess the water on top finally got cold enough. Supposed to be only 28 this Sat for a high, and teens for low, so bubbler went back on this morning. Also removed the floating "dolphin" thermometer and brought it back inside.

    Very cold this morning, about 14 at 7 am. Sunny, which is nice, but VERY windy! Sucks to have to do things outside, but put on coveralls and winter coat, and I'm good to go! Actually stayed outside longer than planned, since didn't get chilled. Moved round bale out for horses (they said "thanks!") and added few more zip ties to my snow fence. Still no snow to speak of, though.

    Haha! I had no ice yesterday evening on my pond, but by this morning it was over 1" thick. Used floating heater to open hole, then turned on pump to open it wider (pump as bubbler works cheaper than heater, I figure). Now have 4' wide hole, so pump is off, Will see how long it takes to freeze over again. Figure no need to leave them on.

    Snowing today, but melting as it hits, it was stinking until around an hour ago. They say tomorrow we are going to have horrendous winds, zero chill factor or colder. A good weekend to stay inside.

    Our winds are 22 mph, gusting to 27. Started out directly from the north, now it's from the WNW. My back deck/pond face east, so I'm comfy in the sun on the deck .... well, as comfy as a person can be OUT of the wind in the sunshine when the temp is 23F outside. :razz:
