Uffda..still cold. It is 9 PM on Saturday night and it is –19 F or –28 C already.
Chance needed to go out and play ball…he was antsy. Now he is settled in with Far Guy watching an old movie. There is only so much ball dropping and whining that I can take before he gets on my last nerve and then I take him outside to work at bit so he will calm down. He can’t help it that he is Border Collie with excess energy.
The stars were shining brightly in the clear cold sky. The air was crisp. The Big Dipper is pointed with the dipper part high in the air. Orion’s Belt was easy to pick out. I love the night sky.
So it is cold..what else is new? The snow was very sparkly in the sunshine today. The camera does not do it justice but I tried.
We ran a errand and recycled. I think the trail along the edge of the corn field is a well traveled Wild Turkey Trail.
Took the back way home…and stopped for a few photos. This shows the color we have this time of year. Doncha know everything is accented with white den… ya spring is still a long vays off.
Far Guy is out of sorts he might have cabin fever. He wants to put the place up for sale and move away from the cold weather. I asked him where to? He replied “South, Arkansas or Missouri” I said “Why not Oregon or Washington?” I said “Well we could rent a lake place in Minnesota for part of the year!” and he replied “What for? Two weeks in July and August that it isn’t freezing?” Point taken. A few days of warmer weather and his sorts will straighten out again…or not.
I am sure that Groundhog will see his shadow and we will have at least 6 more weeks of winter except in our case where spring comes late possibly 12 more weeks of winter.
