Good 32º ice on the barn roof morning.
Yesterday we started off frozen, 32º, and warmed to 73º.
10-2 radio code means 'receiving well'. (Yes, I understand!)

Interesting about owls....
The design of owls' wings allows them to fly in almost absolute silence. Different parts of their wings and the characteristics of their feathers contribute to their silent flight. Owls have broad wings with large surface areas that help them to float through the air without flapping too much. Less flapping makes less noise.
The main reason owls can fly silently is the uniquely designed leading edges of their primary feathers. When most birds fly, turbulence – created when air gushes over the surface of their wings – causes noise. Owls' wings, however, are unique because they reduce noise caused by turbulence.
