Simply Amazing Weather

I guess you could call this our "January Thaw," although we haven't had enough cold weather yet  to give it that title:

Today ...Mostly sunny. Windy. Highs in the lower 50s. West winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts to around 30 mph increasing to 25 to 30 mph with gusts to around 60 mph in the afternoon.

Tonight...Partly cloudy. Breezy. Lows in the mid 20s. West winds 20 to 25 mph.

Friday...Partly sunny. Colder. Highs in the lower 30s. West winds 15 to 20 mph.

Friday Night...Mostly cloudy. Lows 15 to 20. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.

Saturday...Partly sunny. Highs in the mid 20s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

Saturday Night And Sunday...Partly cloudy. Lows around 15. Highs in the lower 30s.

Sunday Night...Mostly cloudy. Lows in the lower 20s.

This balmy weather is not the best for the animals.  They are shedding some of the thicker hair they grew for winter.  I hope we have a gradual cool down instead of a shockingly cold Alberta Clipper or something else.

We've taken advantage of the warm temps to do a lot of butchering ... Not only chickens, but also our steer.  More about that next time.

It HAS been amazing, hasn't it? We are supposed to get to 60 today! We even did a little painting that needed done.
But they are saying next week, we might get back to true winter...
