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!
I couldn't resist one last post for today! I must be crazy, considering how hard it has been to upload anything, with our internet constantly flicking out, but I'm waiting for bread to rise, anyhow, so I've got time. 😀 I just had to get some photos of Fenrir, sitting on the light fixture over … Continue reading Just one more…
Yesterday, we never reached the predicted high of the day, though we did come close. Today, it looks to be much the same. So much for starting to warm up! It was -33C, with a wind chill of -39C (-27F and -38F) when I headed out. That didn't stop the cats from being out and … Continue reading Wasn’t it supposed to get warmer today??
I was able to head out and get both vehicles running for a while. It's a good thing I trust my brother so much, or I would never have left the engines running for any length of time, from the noises I was hearing. The van stalled right away, but did eventually start. Since I … Continue reading Having a rough time!
Thanks to my dear brother and his wife, I had plenty of kibble to feed the kitties this morning. I would have emptied the bin this morning, otherwise. Ginger was out and about, and covered in frost! While the tips of their fur makes them look chilled, when I pet them or pick them up … Continue reading Frosted!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I have the best brother in the world! And the best sister-in-law! We were looking over our options on how to get some of the supplies we needed. I even put feelers out to see if there was someone local who could give me a ride … Continue reading Awesome!
We weren't supposed to be getting even COLDER! This is what we were at, when I would normally be heading outside to feed the critters. -40C/F At least the "real feel" was a bit warmer, though when I did go outside, there was enough of a wind to prove that wrong! As I write this, … Continue reading Really?
Nostrildamus is not impressed. Once again, none of the cats were in their cat house, and I wish I knew why. They were all looking like poor Nosy, here, covered in frost and looking miserable! Amazingly, though, Nosy is in a warm spot, here. When I picked him up, his fur actually felt warm, from … Continue reading It’s wicked out there! (updated)
Yup. We stayed home. With my concerns about the drive, my older daughter was willing to take time off from working on commissions to go with me. Her sister is my back up driver, who would be able to take my mother's car to come get me, if it ever came to that, so she … Continue reading Guess what didn’t happen?
When heading out this morning, I was on the lookout for Creamsicle Jr., hoping to get as much of a look at his eye as I can. Much to my surprise, the cats that showed up this morning all came from either around the house, or the outer yard. Not a single cat was in … Continue reading Kitty status, and do I dare?
