Relief in sight from punishing cold

It’s another single-digit day of cold in Orleans County. A wind chill advisory is in effect until 3 p.m. as wind chills will feel as low as 20 below zero.

I think today feels the coldest of the recent string of frigid days. I tried to take a few photos this morning, and my bare fingers didn’t last long.

The top photo shows the big grain facility in Knowlesville at the corner of Route 31 and Knowlesville Road. The sun is shining despite the lack of warmth.

The high temperatures are forecast to reach 30 on Thursday, 32 on Friday and 35 on Saturday.

This barn is on west side of Knowlesville Road, a little north of Route 31.

An apple orchard withstands the cold in this photo by the Erie Canal. The image was taken from the Presbyterian Road canal bridge.

This barn appears to be gasping for life on Albion-Eagle Harbor Road. It’s just east of the Eagle Harbor lift bridge by the canal.
