So... I did a bit of shoveling when I headed out to do my rounds this morning. There is no drifting in front of the house, so the depth of snow you're seeing is what fell. I figure it's about 6-7 inches. There is still a light snowfall as I write this. We've got winds … Continue reading Are you staying home?
... of a spring storm. https://youtu.be/QjfxKbOkh_A I'm not looking forward to clearing the driveway after this. It's supposed to continue snowing through most of the day. I was planning to go to the post office, as I'm expecting some packages, but I think I will wait until Monday! My daughter is working on Saturday, which … Continue reading Just a bit …
So are the juncos. The deer have suddenly stopped coming around, which leaves plenty of seeds for the returning juncos. I haven't seen these guys in ages! I'm certainly glad my mother's appointment had been rescheduled for yesterday and not, say, today. Yesterday was a very pleasant day and the roads were great. If it … Continue reading Winter is back!
Things are warming up again. We're actually above freezing right now. Unfortunately, that means that any hibernating flies that have survived the cold are starting to come out and sluggishly make their way to windows. Guess how I know that? Go on! Guess! Yeah. The cats have found them. I first discovered this when I … Continue reading Silly Kitties, and relentless winds
So, today isn't turning out as planned. It was supposed to warm up today. Technically, I suppose it did. When I headed out to do my rounds in the morning, it was only about -19C/-2F; much warmer than the past few days. The wind chill was -33C/-27F, according to the weather apps. That's a lie. … Continue reading Let’s try that again…
As I write this, I can look out my window and see beautiful, cloudless blue skies through the trees. The sun is bright, and I can barely see any movement in the branches to show a breeze. This is deceptive. That's right. -26C/-14F right now, with a wind chill of -34C/-29F, having warmed up from … Continue reading Deceptive
Well, I'm happy to say that the weather forecasts for today are no longer predicting a severe drop in temperatures in only 4 hours. We're still going to get the extreme temperatures. It's just going to take until about 8am tomorrow for it to happen. Our current mild temperatures (we are at -3C/26F with a … Continue reading Arctic Blast
Well, the deed is done. Little Susan had an appointment with the vet, yesterday, and she is now recovering from surgery! Since we had to make sure to 1) have her available to take to the vet in the first place and 2) make sure she didn't eat anything after 8pm the night before, we … Continue reading One down, more to go!
I was finally able to upload my images and was working on a post about the storm and current conditions. Then the power went out. It has been off and on several times since. There are outages all over the south and central areas of the province, so we are doing much better than others. … Continue reading Giving it a break right now.
I have been trying for days to upload images, with very little success. We have had no real problems going online. It is just uploading that is an issue. This might be why. 😒 At one point, during the doors test, the upload speed dropped to 0.01mbps. Also, it took a couple of tries to … Continue reading Speed test
