My car said it was -1 degree Fahrenheit as I left work this afternoon. And it's going to get much colder before the night is through. The latest weather report predicts -13F with wind chills reaching approximately -50F. Are you kidding me?
I spent quite enough time outdoors today....I believe my contacts may be permanently frozen to my eyeballs. I guess that's cheaper than lasik surgery....permanent contacts - hmmmm, perhaps I'm on to something here?
The poor horses next door had an inch of snow on their backs this morning - I wonder why they don't just spend time in their little barn? It has to be warmer than out in this nasty wind!
I brought a little electric heater out to my garden cottage in an attempt to save the plants I've been overwintering.
It may be too late, but perhaps there's a chance. I'll leave the heater on until Monday - the temps will be significantly higher after the weekend. The plants looked great a few days ago but a little worse for wear today....uh oh. This pic was taken when they still looked good....I'll cross my fingers and hope for the best.
I gave my critters an extra scoop of peanuts and seeds this morning - and again when I got home from work. Poor little things, I feel so terribly bad for them in this weather!
It's really the kind of day you should be inside by the fire playing with your favorite toy.
Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Wiggle Wiggle! Squeak!
And when you're all tuckered out, it's time for a nap in the chair closest to the fire.
The perfect way to spend a frigid winter's day.
