Oh, man, I did NOT want to go out today! Yes, we were a lot warmer than yesterday. Technically, it was -10C/14F when I went out to feed the critters. Stepping outside was like being smacked in the face with ice. We have GOT to do something about that gap in the wind break from … Continue reading Can I turtle, yet?
Though our high of the day is expected to be a relatively mild -17C/-2F, when I headed out to do my morning rounds, it was -22C/-8F. The cats actually didn't seem to mind it too much! I counted only 15 this morning, though. I also got to pet the Distinguished Guest a bit. Thankfully, there … Continue reading Feelin’ the chill!
The path of least resistance... I just had to giggle at the fresh cat path, long the ridges left behind when the driveway was cleared. So many paw prints. Probably made during the rush to the kibble house, when my husband came out with food, this morning! We had blowing snow all night, so these … Continue reading Follow the path!
Our renters are the best. Okay, they're actually my brother's renters, but you know what I mean. I messaged them asking if I could hire someone to clear our driveway some time this weekend. Someone came over, tonight! Isn't that a thing of beauty? There was so much snow, he actually had to push some … Continue reading The Best
It was a lovely morning, as I did my rounds, with nothing at all to suggest we were going to be hit by a storm, later today! As is now usual, I had a whole crowd of kitties waiting outside the door for breakfast. 😀 I counted 19, but it's possible I missed one of … Continue reading A good day to be baking!
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!
