What a Difference!

It’s been mostly sunny and dry here the past few months, so I keep forgetting that it’s supposed to be winter. That’s not the case with Kaitlin, Torben and the pups.

Kaitlin wrote that it has been a hard two weeks for the pups.

A few mornings where absolute was less than zero-bad for paws (although we did walk to the neighbor’s and back for Sammy), and many days where temps were in single digits/wind chill at or below zero.

And she has been doing a lot of shoveling. Fingers crossed it eases up for them!

    it always looks so “romantic” all those drifts of snow, until you mention shovelling, then I know it’s certainly only romantic in a picture, not in real-time…

    we are back to full on humidity and cicadas are singing but apparently another cyclone could swing by this way… I thought i could manage a bit of weed pulling, and as it turned out “bit” was the best – there is a lovely breeze but with humidity on force…

    I wish that it would ease up for us too. It has been an unusual winter for us and for the first time ever, age is telling on my bones and muscles in the cold!

    There has been no snow but hail in some parts of our state that has caused some havoc.

      that hail is heartbreaking I’m sorry you’re having trouble with the cold. Our apartment is a lot cozier in winter since they installed double pane (more insulated) windows a few years ago. They have made a huge difference.

      What kind of heating do you have?

    • Jean says:

      More to the point, what are your temperatures? From what I’m seeing your lows are higher than our highs right now!

  4. Seems that everyone has been experiencing an unusual winter! We haven’t seen the sun for weeks. (that’s a bit of an exaggeration!), but I think spring is ‘just around the corner’ now!

      Long ago we lived in Ithaca, New York for 8 1/2 years. We saw the sun about six times during the winter, which started the end of October and wasn’t over until May, so l sympathize.

    No heating at all. I just use warm clothes. The children do not appear to be as affected.
