I walked inside and checked the outdoor thermometer reading. It was -16.
So, after a super cold winter, -16 just seems regular. It doesn't even seem extreme. It's funny what you can get used to after awhile.
But that morning on the farm ...
The tractor had a flat tire.
The skid steer had a flat tire.
A hydraulic line blew in the wheel loader.
The molasses pump blew a hose fitting.
So, the cold is still affecting machines, if not people. Don't look for any newspaper articles about it. It's old news now. Spring starts in 15 days!
