Brrrrrrr - it's frigid on the mountain top today! We're hitting a low of -2 tonight - winter is here with a vengeance!
Sadly, it's going to get much, much worse this evening - the winds are going to kick into high gear, and with the wind chill the real-feel is predicted to be -29 Fahrenheit.
NEGATIVE 29??? Are you kidding me?
The poor cold, hungry birdies are hopping onto the flat feeder as I'm still dumping the seed in these mornings. They don't even wait for me to walk away!
Our 15 inches of snow eventually melted, but we've been getting snow squalls pretty much every day since, so there's a nice coating out there now.
Hopefully it's enough snow cover to insulate all those poor plants in my garden....like my Mothers' Day tree.
The deck thermometer this morning read about 6 degrees. I guess that's a heat wave compared to negative 29!
Makes me very happy I invested in new windows last year. My house is cozy and warm, and the sun shines into every corner, making me one happy Mountain Mama!
Of course the Monkey knows right where to plop her little bum - right in front of a roaring fire.
Best place to be on a day like today.
Because, baby, it's COLD outside!
