Huh. Okay…

Woke up this morning, stumbled into the main room, and saw that the outside temperature read 34o. Technically above freezing. At six ayem. I had to go see this for myself: Must have really clouded up overnight.


It’s mid-January, traditionally the coldest part of the winter. And the reading clearly wasn’t accurate, I mean the mudboards were frozen to the ground and I definitely should have worn lined gloves during the morning walkie, but it still wasn’t nearly as overnight cold as it’s been for the previous week. Don’t know what I did to deserve that, but I’ll take it.

    It’s been snowing for the past day. I’ve been out twice with the snowblower to keep ahead of it. Last night, the temperature rose enough so it rained for a while, so I also have to deal with a layer of ice when I go out in a few minutes. You wanna trade? 🙂

    Gosh, I would not want to deal with iced snow! Joel, glad you are cozy. Ah, it went to -36˚F here last night, got up to about -15˚F today, but great sun, and tonight it is only going down to about -27˚F. I have both wood stoves going. Sure, I could turn on the electric heat, crank up the thermostats, but where is the fun in that? I am having fun shoveling snow, hauling in from my stacked 4 cords of firewood. So I spend some time upstairs, and some time downstairs, and the house is lovely, and I am having a good time managing the fires while I work on organizing this bibliography for this paper. I take breaks to shovel out the drifts and enjoy the lovely crisp air and sunshine. I wear lined gloves inside my welder’s gloves that I use to stoke fires. I also have great mittens. And Baffin boots for walking in snow or just this level of cold. I was trained in Alaska. You all stay warm out there.

    🙂 ilo, if you can still enjoy shoveling snow by mid-January in snow country you are living life right.

To the stake with the heretic!
