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!!!
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
We had a very surreal moment this afternoon. Someone knocked at the door. That just doesn't happen. Especially with a locked gate and snowed in driveway! It was the renter's farm hand. He had been driving by with their tractor and noticed we'd cleared a few paths in the snow, so he stopped, climbed the … Continue reading An amazing Christmas gift just happened!
My daughter was a sweetheart and willing to get out with our little snow blower to clear a few paths. I went out with her to control the extension cords, to make it easier. I grabbed a quick photo of what I'd cleared around the cat shelters, earlier. The plan is to use the cleared … Continue reading Pathways
Our first blizzard of the season has passed us by. The weather system is still going, though. On the weather radar, I can see that a swath of the US, Ontario and Quebec are being hit as the storm makes its way to the East coast. As I write this, we are at -22C/-7.6F, with … Continue reading Just a bit of snow…
If all had gone to plan for today, I would be just arriving at my mother's right now, to help her with her grocery shopping. This morning, things were looking just fine out. Some of the cats still didn't want to go out in the relatively warm temperatures! 😀 Switching out the memory card on … Continue reading Stormy day
