This is the view out the front door of our shop this past Thursday morning at about 7:45 central time, when the temperature was 24 degrees below zero. Does it look like it was that cold?

I mainly took the picture because I wanted to see if this cell phone camera would be able to capture the image of the setting moon there just to the left center of the photo a little bit above the horizon. (It shows up better when the picture is bigger.)

We’re actually sitting at 12 above zero this morning. It feels like a heat wave, But it doesn’t look too much different than this.
