I'm really glad we were able to plug power back into the cat's house, when we couldn't do it through the sun room any more. Temperatures have dropped, and while we are reaching above freezing during the day, it's getting quite a bit colder overnight. Since it's too cold to continue with the clean up, … Continue reading Clean up: just a bit
Can you believe this??? These are the temperatures, screencapped just minutes before I started this post. That's right. We're at -28C/-18F with a wind chill of -32C/-26F. Actually, the wind chill was reading at -35C/-31F when I did the (short version!) morning rounds! I only saw Potato Beetle when I opened the sun room. Not … Continue reading Welcome to March!
After getting teased with spring, the temperatures lurched back downwards last night. Also, I am SO tired of our intermittent internet. It took me forever to get any of my weather apps to load! We'll be able to switch back to the primary account soon. Hopefully, that will be better again. As I write … Continue reading Winter is not quite done with us, yet
I might wait just a bit longer. I'm sure the critters won't mind staying sheltered a bit longer, either. The temperatures plummeted last night! It's now almost 10am as I write this, and it's still -27C/-16.6F with a wind chill of -35C/-31F out there. The app on my phone says we've already "warmed up" to … Continue reading You bet, I’m procrastinating!!!
I can tell how much milder the temperatures have gotten these past few days, but how many of the outside cats I see when I do my rounds in the morning! I saw 9 of them this morning, including Rolando Moon, who has been away for a week or two, but showed up yesterday. I … Continue reading Cat perch
My goodness, it's wicked out there this morning! That -12C (10F) isn't too bad. It's the -21C (-5F) wind chill! Actually, I'm pretty sure that in our yard, the wind chill is more severe than that! The amazing thing is that we are supposed to reach 0C (32F) by this evening. The winds are driving … Continue reading Wicked!
I was checking out how the cats tuck under the kibble house, where they hide and watch while I do the outside errands. It's completely clear of snow, but the ground is quite frozen, of course. After seeing how the cats were doing the cold toes dance yesterday, I decided to go see if I … Continue reading Critter(s) of the Day: toe warmer
It's a bit warmer today, so the outside cats were out and about while I did my rounds. Still chilly, though. Chilly enough for the cold toes dance. Potato Beetle demonstrates the first step; holding up one front paw, while expressing one's discomfort. Nostrildamus follows along... Note the delicate curling of the tail over the … Continue reading Critter(s) of the Day: the cold toes dance
Good morning, Rosencrantz! Am I in your way? 😀
It was a bit perplexing, looking at the weather forecasts over the past few days. We'd have these lovely temperatures, hovering just a bit below freezing, while the app was saying it was cold. A few days ago, I could at least blame the wind chill... There is no new snow in those streams blowing … Continue reading Colder temps and signs of furry visitors
