Observing creek to estimate temperature

cold creek with brick ford

Our creek freezing is an indicator that the previous night got down close to zero degrees.

Some part of our buried water line froze last night. We added an extra electric pipe heater to the part that enters our kitchen a few days ago and thanks to that extra bit of warmth the line thawed just after lunch which is a big improvement from last Winter.
