Freezing much?

Forecast in Cleveland for the next few days -

Today - High 13, Low 7
Thursday - High 9, Low -3
Friday - High 4, Low 3
Saturday - High 17, Low 17

Last night in the barn it was still 30 degrees, so I lunged both horses. Albert was his typical self, but he's in decent enough shape now that I can lunge him for ten minutes without him getting soaking wet. Kaswyn is still in good shape too, and I also put him on the lunge line for ten minutes. I just wanted to make sure that he wasn't able to work out of his weird looking back end. After ten minutes he did look better, but he still wasn't acting as energetic as usual, especially for a horse that is used to working and hasn't been getting out much because of the weather.

Regardless, it doesn't look like he'll be doing any kind of work for the next few days because of these frigid temps. Brrr!

I guess you don't want to hear that it was 75 in Los Altos yesterday?

No, Miss C, I do not. Although you could say that I should just stop complaining and move back, right? :)

I never wanted to move to Cleveland in the first place.

Very cold here too, plus I just shoveled 4 inches of snow off the driveway and several more are due tonight.

Winter sucks.

It's getting cold here too. Not quite that cold, but colder than they told us it was going to be in the earlier projections! I could have really used that extra 15° but looks like I'm going to have to wear extra layers to create them on my own.

We will only be working horses lightly because of the lower temps. I am dying to ride, but still can't sit in the saddle.

It was -20 when I woke up, with a windchill of -50. They cancelled school because of cold. Now direct some of that pity/sympathy my way! ;)

It NEVER gets that cold here. But currently we're averaging at 23C daily. I ride in the mornings because the humidity gets really bad.
