Once again, the real world made liars out of the forecasters. 😄 We were not supposed to break 30C today. I've been watching the weather radar as rain supposedly passed right over us. Out my window, it was bright and sunny. I headed out earlier with the animal repellent spray and used it around the … Continue reading I thought it was supposed to be cooler?
With the expected heat today, I headed out earlier to do my rounds, and stayed out to do extra watering with the hose fertilizer attachment. When I first went outside, at about 7:30am it was almost chilly. An hour later, the heat was already hitting. The above photo was taken between 8:30 and 9am. The … Continue reading Starting early
Okay, this is getting ridiculous! I don't think the needle on that thermometer can go any further. What do you think that's at? 65C/149F? Closer to 70C/158F? I don't think I've ever seen that thermometer get that high. Of course, the weather apps didn't show temperatures that high. One of them allows me to look … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: more firsts!
This is from a screen cap on my phone's weather app. Just before 3 in the afternoon, and we're at 35C/95F, and it feels like 38C/100F. At least, that's the data from the weather station this app is linked to. This is the thermometer outside a south facing window. Yeah. The thermometer is "only" labelled … Continue reading It’s a little hot out there…
That title sounds like the name of a bad 80's band. 😀 So the weather system swept in yesterday evening, and continues on today. We have had a little snow, and the temperature as I write this is still at -11C/12F, with a wind chill of -21C/-6F. I've written before about the curious phenomenon of … Continue reading Ginger and the outside cats.
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?
