It's getting chilly again! When I headed out this morning, we were at -21C/-5.8F with a windchill of -33C/-27.4F We'll be getting colder over the next week, before we start going back to normal temperatures again. It's going to be a good time to stay indoors, drink lots of tea, and catch up on my … Continue reading Trending down
What a lovely day we are having today! As I write this, we are at -5C/23F, and are expected to get a bit warmer. After the deep freeze we just had, this is feeling downright tropical! I meant to post this picture yesterday, but I just didn't have the brain space to do a blog … Continue reading Problem found
One of the first things I do in the morning, before heading outside to do my rounds, is check the weather. This morning, at a time when I would normally be starting to head outside, it was -36C/-32.8F Yeeeaaaaahhhhh.... No. I waited a couple of hours before heading out, but it was still -28C/-18.4F At … Continue reading It’s still cold out there, and… on a more serious note
What a difference between yesterday and today! I took advantage of yesterday's warmth with a trip into town. At one point, on the way back, I was driving through precipitation that couldn't make up it's mind if it was snow or rain! LOL We actually hit 3C/37.4F, which was a couple of degrees warmer than … Continue reading There are those who prefer the cold!
The temperatures have gone up quite a bit today, and the outside cats are quite appreciating it! I was very happy to see Rosencrantz this morning! I haven't seen her in a couple of weeks. Butterscotch also made an appearance this morning. I didn't see her yesterday. Her babies were just loving the new snow, … Continue reading It’s a fluffy day today!
I just had to pause for a picture when I saw these guys, watching me when I came outside this morning. These guys know well enough to stay out of the wind, even if they can see fresh food and water is about to be dispensed! 😀 Except this little Spice Boy, who has a … Continue reading Morning kitties, and apparently we had a storm
Yesterday's fog kept getting denser and denser before finally being blown away last night. The live feed on the security camera looked like a blizzard, but it was just fog! Now, everything outside looks like something out of a magical fairy tale! The spruces are the tallest trees around, and their tops always get the … Continue reading It’s a fairyland out there!
We had ourselves a very pleasant surprise today! Company! Sort of... I got an email from my older brother, asking if he could swing by this afternoon. Considering that it's a 1 1/2 hour drive for him, this was a welcome surprise! I got his message after doing my morning rounds, which included changing the … Continue reading Clearing snow before it snows, and I think they’ve figured it out!
While they don't come around when we're around to see them, there are plenty of signs that the deer are coming to the feeding station. The snow was absolutely trampled this morning! You can see it all the way back to the corner of the spruce grove, before the tracks start splitting up into smaller … Continue reading Signs in the snow
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!!!
