Good Morning World
Last night it was very, very cold and windy, arctic winds. Lots of water has been hauled with buckets to the paddocks.The Belgians seem to consume more water in the cold air, then they do in the summer.We have a full barn, even the Belgians slept inside. The construction of the Hoop house, brings hope of spring when the yard is like the frozen tundra. The full moon looks beautiful , but the air is ugly! -8 Fryburg winds west,North west. Well below zero here,on the farm. Not expected to get more than 20 all week end.
This info about the moon is from www.earthsky.org
The moon and Mars shine in front of two different constellations of the Zodiac. Mars lights up Cancer the Crab, while the moon resides in Leo the Lion.
Cancer is the dimmest zodiacal constellation.
