Negative 18F is pretty tiresome. We had to replace the outside faucet, and everything in the house creaks from whatever tiny amounts of ice were in the boards. It was business as usual for the birds, though:
Cat mode when it's cold:
Then it warmed up, and we had an amazing ice storm:
It's hard to tell, but everything has a layer of ice on it..then the wind blew and the ice shakes off, and makes noises like someone throwing ice on the roof--big cubes of it. The roof is looking like it needs to be replaced soon, which I am not looking forward to, since today the hot water heater decided it was old enough to have the thermostat quit. It's always something, it's just less easy in the winter.
Ice chunks. A few were 6 inches long. I'm very happy the cars can both fit in the garage for times like this.
