A Nineteen Degree Windchill

Small tree near the new arroyo
Although it wasn't as cold this morning a stiff breeze dropped the temperature from 27F actual to 19F with the windchill.  It was pretty uncomfortable until the brilliant sunshine warmed me up.

Heelers didn't seem to mind the chill, intent on IDing the scent of as many desert denizens as they could.  They definitely were a bit out of control, and I had to exert effort to hold them back.

We didn't see any critters of the human variety today; there weren't even any vehicles in the Tellbrook/Sonoma Ranch corner lot.
