    I'm betting there fuel costs are very low so it's not a big issue there.

    Ok, so seriously, how does one deal with temps like that? do you just stay indoors? Do your cars start? How long can you be outside? How do you care for your horses in that weather? Does everyone just hole up and wait it out?

    I can remeber a few times when the wind chill was -50 in IL. It sucked. Can't fathom base temp of -50. It got up to 65 at the training center in Tulie today.

    it is what it is.. some people stay indoors.. some people still try to find ways to be outside for a bit.. (during the 4 hours of sunlight) The cars will start if they are kept in good working condition and plugged in all the time.. but even then they can fail.. belts can break and gaskits blow.. You can be outside for as long as your clothes will keep you warm.. you should not have exposed skin.. becasue it will frost bite in a matter of minutes.. seconds if it is below -50. Most horses thrive in the cold.. as long as they can get heat from eating hay they are fine... You must make sure that you have someplace that they can go that is heated if they get sick or hurt. You can't just hole up and wait.. you have to have something to do or you will go nuts.. LOL :th_lol_hitting: :th_lol_hitting:
