We woke this morning to -4F. Snow still on the ground. Faucets dripping water to keep the lines from freezing (catching it in buckets for later use). Icicles along the roof line. The big flakes in our Admiral FitzRoy's storm glass indicating we might get more snow.
They say it hasn't been this cold in these hills for a very long while. Most people aren't liking it. I have to admit, we do...I know, kind of crazy...taking turns waking up throughout the night to stoke the wood stove, bundling up to go to the basement and check the pipes, sleeping with the covers over my head to stay warm...relishing these moments that we may never experience again.
The past two days have been so cold I haven't walked to the mailbox and Johny's taken Bear...
On my walk to see my friend Bertie today, I saw these cool ice spikes on our tiny frog pond in the woods...
Life is good, sub freezing cold included!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
