I can't ever remember seeing this before. For the last 3or4 weeks, lows around 0*F and 17*F My stock tank hasn't frozen solid with cover ice. But, read this, I think I'vr figured it out. This watering device, the only one of its kind not a heated fountain is acually a bathtub. We've had so much snow around here the tub is surrounded with a minimume 6" snow pack. The tub double walled is its own earth's heat absorbing air space around the water containment part.

Have there been any other un-janet related wierd sights out there???

Here's another one for ya.....I have 4 plastic bottles of store bought water in the frig which is in my unheated garage. One bottle is frozen solid, while the other 3 are not even slush.

What's up with that??????

well the snow pack will definitely cut the windchill :) we used to keep the drinking water pail in the porch and it hardly ever froze - one snappy cold morning i went to get a drink and while lifting the dipper out, i clunked the side of the pail. the whole pailful of water turned into slush and i couldn't even get the dipper back in. strange things happen in nature :)

Have about 100 rabbits in cages in a retired dairy barn. Barn is imbedded in a hillside, with 1 foot thick concrete walls. Upper story is insulated with lots of hay, etc. siding was good, and we put vinyl siding over that, so barn is very tight. Inside temperatures are usually above freezing unless outside temps are below mid-teens, and or it is very windy. When temperatures do drop below freezing inside, often, there will be fozen water bottles, and the surrounding cages will be unfrozen - no rhime or reason why some will be frozen and next ones not!
