Last night was -22+ below zero. The neighbor had -29 below last night but he lives down in the river bottom. Tonight they are talking -28 below so it will mean more like -35 below zero really. Its always about five degrees or more colder at my house then in town. Then when you add the windchill factor, you get in the -50 below factor. So its a good time not to be outside on the range and shoot. Just walking out to the mail box was a trip.

17 below this morning, up to 5 by mid afternoon and back down to 20 below tonight. The rabbits will be dancing in the fields trying to keep warm.

I once deer hunted and it was -32 below zero but I just could not last out side. Even in a blind out of the wind. After a short time, I just sat there and started to shiver. When we ice fish we sit in huts with heaters most the time. Although there are some that will bucket sit.

Actually in this kind of weather if there is no wind, this is the time to cut firewood and expecially split firewood. You stay warm working, and the wood just pops apart when it is this cold.
