Yesterday we took a walk and was amazed by all the neat ice patterns we were finding. My favorites were the ones that looked like mazes with marbles.

Megan tried breaking the ice to see if we could figure out what was causing the unique patterns. Most of the ice was still to thick for her to break, but we did discover some neat patterns under some.

Cold Day, Boiling Water

I am not sure what the temperature was this morning, but it was cold! I know that is is -8 right now with a wind chill of -17, but this morning was even colder.

Yesterday, we were supposed to beat the cold weather recorded for the city, but I forgot to check. I know with the wind chill it was supposed to get to -51, but I do not know the actual temperature for the day.


Even though the eclipse tonight was around midnight, I stayed up to watch it. Megan had asked to see it when I told her about it, so I woke her up. Mark, Andrea and Adrian bundled up to come outside too for a few minutes.

Even though it was a very late night and very cold out, I was thankful that the sky was so clear and we were able to see it.
