In the Deep Freeze


Winter Cabin

For the first time in more than 2 years, we are experiencing really dangerously cold temperatures.  It was zero when we got up this morning and schools were cancelled, not because of bad roads, but because it was just too cold to have the kids out waiting for the buses.

I waited until the sun was up before taking Abbie for her walk, and kept it as short as possible.  I will make it up to her when it warms up a bit.

Thought we might need to put blankets on the horses last night, but when I checked on them before bedtime, they both looked happy and comfortable. (Just like us, they will shiver if they are cold.)  We are giving them extra hay, which helps them to generate their own heat.  These are the coldest temperatures the barn cats have ever experienced, but they were both snuggled in their Kitty Tower for the night, and seemed content.

I take comfort in the fact that we are more than half-way through January and although February can be one of our coldest months, at least it is the shortest!

  1. I think Canadians dress more sensibly for the cold than Americans do, but in our defense, keep in mind I am talking Fahrenheit, not Centigrade!

  2. We were out there waiting for buses with temperatures way below zero. Children were out playing during recess in boots, jackets and snowpants. Guess Canadians are hardier folk 🙂
