What the heck, Seattle?!

Remember how I said that we were trying our darnest to keep warm? Let's just say that this has been a very, very hard winter so far for the family that has spent the last five years in sunny Orange County California.

It's been below freezing here for days, and days and more days than I'd like to remember. The chicken's water is freezing solid practically every hour. And this morning, I went out on the front porch and discovered that my pond-in-a-pot had a layer of ice that was 5 INCHES THICK. Seattle! This is not like you! I would like to return to the land of fog and rain please. Or we may just pack up and head back to SoCal.

Pictures of the pond to come later. My poor fish.
