Last night saw a low of -23 with a -31 wind chill. Oh the poor ani-mules! The horses have blankets, the goats extra straw in their little houses... we gave everyone mucho hay so they can generate heat from the inside out. It's all we can do but man was I cringing thinking about them out there.

Spot has her date tonight. I don't know if cold will affect her "mood"? Tho', it is supposed to heat up to 18 with sun today, so maybe the date will be unaffected. Fingers crossed.

Scary story today for you!

The front page of the Denver Post had a story about cattle mutilations... these 70 yr old ranchers in Southern CO are finding cows with all the innards taken, eyes, brains, ears, tongues, udders...

The tender meat is left, the bones of the skull/neck are picked completely white and clean... literally overnight.

There are no tracks anywhere near the carcass. There is no blood anywhere near the carcass. The areas taken are cut with surgical/laser like precision.

I tell Furry Husband I think it's the Chupacabra. He thinks aliens.

Aliens, totally. Perhaps aliens drink the blood, and feast on the organs. Wouldn't that be creepy? I hope somebody puts up surveillance camera, I would really like to see what aliens look like!

Oh, its getting cold here too! We have a few inches of snow with a high today in the teens and a low tonight in the single digits. Yikes! We will get above freezing for the weekend though!

I love the Chupacabra story... but I'm with the furry husband, and I'm going aliens!

Heather - even human, whatever they are doing, whatever they are - it's CREEPY! Our weekend is supposed to be back in the 40's.. it will feel like a heat wave!

Kelley - I know - deep down I think aliens too. I just like saying chupacabra! Chupacabra, chupacabra, chupacabra!
