We've had near record colds this past week. The last time Fort Wayne reached 19 below as it did on Thursday was in 1972 - the year Pat was born. Harry captured the outdoor thermometer with a 20 below reading on Thursday morning.
Today George & Anna and the kids came out to try out Jones Hill for sledding. Seth stayed inside and Sam lasted only a few minutes - way too cold for extended exposure and George & his scouts cancelled their overnighter they'd planned in conjunction with the local Klondike Derby (smart move).
Last week we had granddaughter Kensi for a few days. Chuck had some ankle surgery and we were happy to have Kensi for a visit while he recouped. Here is a photo of Kensi putting out birdseed for the birds. Grandpa is orienting her to life on the farm.
