|Corn the Rooster patrolling the coop and keeping his girls safe. They huddled together|
underneath the coop for the better part of the day.
|Samson the Donkey had a few clumps of clay frozen to his hooves.|
His water bucket froze and cracked, and then his second water bucket froze and cracked
even worse. I ended up giving him his first bucket, half-filled this morning.
|The sheep barely noticed the cold. Their hair looks a bit thicker, but otherwise they've |
acted normally. Par for the course for a breed developed in Maine, I guess.
Just a passing thought - if Darwinian survival of the fittest is actually true, then how could humans have developed into such weak, vulnerable, weather-intolerable creatures? It makes no sense to me. What does make sense is that God designed us to be dependent creatures - dependent on our mothers as infants, our families for growth and development, our communities for life-sustaining things like shelter, clothing, and food, and ultimately dependent on God Himself for everything.
O ye cold and heat, bless the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever. -Daniel 3:67
