ICE Cold

The other night it got down into the teens! Our thermometer read fifteen degrees. That's cold for us. There was a sheet of ice over the pond.

I could see the fish hovering near the bottom motionless. I tried to break up the ice sheet some and it was about a half inch thick.

Chicken on ice
Officially it was nine degrees but it didn't get that cold here at the house.

Chickens are pretty weird sometimes. Yesterday when the pond was frozen they went down there to drink.

Blondie walked onto the ice and stood there drinking water while her feet were submerged in ice cold water.

She didn't seem to notice it at all. She stood there for five minutes without any noticeable reaction, like it was summer. Weird.
