The cold continues. Temps hover around zero during the day, drop into the minus teens or twenties at night.
The weather was a big topic at the New Year’s party; everyone admitted they were already fed up with it. Two extreme cycles of cold in one month. Ugh. One guest said he was driving south the next day, seeking warmth. Lucky him! How nice to be able to escape this shit.
Poor Suki. She shivers the instant we go out the door, even though I wrap her in my coat until we reach her “potty” area.
I would have been very uncomfortable if not for portable heaters and electric throws. We have an electric blanket on the bed; it’s one of four blankets. Yes, we do need that many, and the last couple of nights, we’ve left the heat on, set to high. Remember when I put plastic on the windows a few weeks ago? In the bedroom, there is ICE on the window side of the plastic. Unbelievable! Never seen that before.
A couple weeks ago, we enjoyed two days of nice weather. Temps were between 35 and 45, and Suki and I walked the neighborhood. I brought my camera and got the following pictures.
Spotted this snowman on top of a nearby house. Doesn’t he look cheery?
Steps of another kind. Some of you will remember me posting a pic of “hidden stairs.” These are those stairs revealed, thanks to winter. I put this photo through various filters to bring out color and depth.
I hope your new year is off to a great start!
