wintery mix

A few observations from the farm:

When it is 34 degrees the eggs do not freeze in the nest. It has to be well below freezing, as it has been for weeks, to have frozen eggs. The pigs and dogs will be disappointed at all intact eggs coming out of the nests. Not so many for them now.

There is a stage at accumulated snowfall where the electric fence holding pigs where they are supposed to be ceases to conduct electricity. We have reached that stage.

The melting part? Can't get here soon enough.
