I suppose you have all heard about the cold wave. This was Wednesday morning.
With the proper clothing it is possible to venture outside. We are getting relief for one day and then back into the deep freeze. It may get a few degrees above zero today!! It is cause to celebrate.
Just another day in Minnefreezeyourbuttoffsota.
It was so cold our remote thermometer broke and we had to venture to town to buy a new one. The new one is guaranteed to –40 F. We will see.
Huge flocks of the little Redpolls are here and they are hungry!
So is someone else in the neighborhood.
This Hawk scared all the Redpolls off and sat up in the tree for a long time. He/she finally took off. I have no idea what kind of Hawk this is other than a hungry one.
We have a couple of
tree rats squirrels that make their way to our yard every day. Far Guy had a weasel in his garage one night…so the mouse population should be dropping in numbers.
We have six inches of snow at the snowstick. I am thankful that we got a good snow cover before it got so cold.
There was a big power outage in the Park Rapids area…for about eight hours many people were without electricity. (We have a gas fireplace and will keep warm if we lose power.) I also heard that Park Rapids made the National News because it was the coldest spot in the Lower 48 the other day.
We have many projects to keep us busy…and we can always grab a long winters nap.
