It’s been COLD here at Crooked River Farm the past few weeks.  Cold enough that the river has frozen.  Mark, the mason, said that he walked all the way across it a week or two ago.  He’s been held up with his work as it’s just been too cold – 5 degrees F at times, and you just can’t lay block/brick in that kind of weather.  Rather unusual for this time of year – we’re on track for this to be the coldest December on record.  And the forecast for the rest of the winter is no better.  I was told today that all of last miserable snowy winter the temperature never dropped below 10 degrees.  Lawd’a mercy!
