A Winter’s Day

We had our second coating of snow overnight. Just enough to cover the ground, but it’s mostly melted now.

While I wait for my photos to finish downloading off my Rebel, I’m sitting here sipping my recently brewed [I cheated; I used the Tassimo] cup of hot chocolate with a tablespoon of fat-free Cool Whip® on top. Yum. I really needed it to warm myself back up. Brrr…baby it’s coooold outside! It’s 27 degrees with a wind chill of about 15. At least it feels that way. I was silly enough to think I needed some fresh air and exercise, so I walked down to the pond. Hang on ... I need to change into my cozy slippers. My feet are too cold. Okay, back now. Let me see if I got anything worth sharing ...

The pond is frozen now.

Only two ‘vases’ left.

Tomorrow is supposed to be absolutely frigid with highs only in the teens and wind chills to -13. A good day not to take a walk!




We had it down to -40 with the windchill (when the temp gets that low its the same in celcius and fahrenheit) for a week or so but then the chinooks blow in from the mountains.
For about 3 weeks if it wasn’t snowing it was blowing and some times both..drifts everywhere semi-trucks blown off the highway..those are the times I love my 4 wheel drive.
Wed and Thurs the temp jumped up to 60f but they are dropping again and we are sitting at 23f (without windchill) which may even be a bit warm for this time of year.  The weather here is always been nutty so it’s kind of hard to blame global warming.
