Running Hot and Cold

We had quite a cold snap last week – didn’t get above freezing for a week and we were colder than Anchorage Alaska! had icicles around our troughs and a cracked valve, had to break ice on the troughs and the frog pond stayed frozen thick enough to stand on the whole week….brrrr!
