Today's Thursday, January 12, 2017 and we are awaiting what will possibly be the coldest winter temps in Delta Junction since 1999. Who ever knows what the weather will do here? We just wait until it gets here but in the meanwhile I want to document it for all the friends and family who never get to see it or to FEEL 50 BELOW 0 temps on their face; how your skin burns, you inhale as little as you can because the lining of your nose and throat burns, your eyelashes crust over with ice, your limbs go numb, and your thighs will actually go numb in blue jeans. Instead of sipping hot cocoa and warming my feet by the fire, I will dare the winter adventures that are on our farm. Kids will hate me, the sheep will ram me, my own body will ache and burn but I'm committed to my goal of connecting better with social media in 2017. Follow me and see where this Alaska Winter Storm takes us!
Waiting to see if we will get this Winter Storm or not, doesn't really change our daily schedules. Animals still need to be fed and every time the kids get dressed to go outside, they never want to come back in, especially today when the weather was 2 Below and sunny - well as sunny as it gets on a mid-day in January. When the kids want to play, I am always amazed at how fast they can complete chores!
