-18C / coldest day of the year

I know, I know, 2012 is only three days old, but -18C is an attention-getter, given the mild winter we have had so far.   As noted previously in this space, some local flocks of crows and starlings appear to be testing their ability to spend winter hereabouts, as opposed to heading down around the Windsor and south Lake Erie shore areas.   The group of crows above was part of a larger group of about 150-200 that were hanging out east of Pottageville.   Although there is snow on the ground, it is only a few centimetres so the crows still seem able to find spilled grain.
