With the bitter cold, I haven't been able to muster enthusiasm to get back to swimming... YET. Everything - from regular barn chores to pen cleaning - has been so much more difficult in all the snow and ice. I'm sure my "farm work" activities are burning more calories than normal, because I've lost two pounds since Christmas.
We finally had a break in the bitter, bitter cold (single digits, just above zero). But it didn't last long enough to melt off all of the "glaciers" around the place. Then it snowed a few inches again last night, so winter isn't quite over yet. I guess the groundhog said we'll have an early spring, NOT that winter was over. :)
Trudging through our few inches of snow, I really feel for my east coast friends who are buried in snow! We are very grateful to have reliable power in our area, and hope they get the power back very soon!
