  1. ?? what?
    or is it coldest for time of year?
    they get snow which my area doesnt and yet we have temps not far off that as expected normal winter, Melbourne the states capital had 12c this am at 9am news so it was cooler out here in the rural sticks for sure. rather cold now at 8c and dropping but you can go out in a flannel shirt(briefly) 😉 to feed chooks n get wood in

  2. Is International Falls anywhere near Frostbite Falls? I am a bit worried about Bullwinkle and Rocky. They must be fairly old by now and and older folks seem to have problems with temperature extremes. Not so much worried about Boris and Natasha, though. They are Russians, so are probably inured to extreme cold.
