It was one of those weekends. Firstly it was cold. Seriously cold for these parts (one online weather reporting whatsit said it got to -6). That might not be cold in some places in the world but here it froze the duck baths, bird baths, chook waterers and hoses. Killed numerous plants instantly, blew up parts of our watering system which meant we had water fountains squirting everywhere when everything started to defrost, and made your eyes water badly when trying to go anywhere that wasn't plastered to the front of the fire. Two nights in a row.
