What is 50 degrees? Been a long time since we saw a 40....
Was up to a high of 2 today.
Supposed to be minus 17 or so tonite, then might warm up to a 30-something by the end of next week.
I'm babying the water line to my barn, the pit where it junctions is freezing, but the line itself is holding up, if I can keep it going one more night. We are supposed to be 5 feet deep around here, most of mine is 6 feet. But the water in the cister feeding the barn must be chilling quite a bit, so there is not much warmth transferred with the cattle drinking any.
I also got a new well this fall, so a lot of fresh dug holes and water line, sometimes that freezes in deeper in fresh dirt, so been a winter up here too.
