Keeping warm, at -45!

It’s cooooooold here in Kotzebue. It’s been below 20 F for at least 2 weeks. My chickens are happy and warm though.

My little white Banty fluffing up to warm up. She still lays an egg a day even though it’s so cold.

My oh so frozen window. I carved a big smiley face in it afterward, so all the kids passing by would see the red light shining through.

Stay warm, like my chickens!!
