As much as I love the cold, I'm glad that this system begins to break today for a little while. I can't imagine what my electric bill for heating will be this month and we have a LOT of winter left to get through.
BTW, we were -3°F this morning. We just broke 0.0°F when I checked a few minutes ago. We're supposed to be 47°F and rain on Thursday/Friday.
That'll feel so warm I'll have to walk around in my Speedos.
No wonder the car isn't moving! Frozen solid ! LOL
We had a balmy 14 F. this morning, I hade to see my heating bill also. joe
If this was meant for me. No parkas. I live in the warmest places in Canada! If I made my own coat it would be harbour seal! Common as dirt and water proof! LOL! Rains like crazy! Got to go north, inland or uphill to find what most would consider cold! That said i did get a dangerous case of the shivers on a summer night. Unprepared on a beach with a small fire. Won't be doing that again!
They harvest it by season as well. (probably in the documentary) winter boots made from winter furs are warmer. I recently saw a documentary on finding in tact native arrows and spears. Thawing out of the ice in the high ranges. The caribou go up there because the ice stays year round. It's hot work being one them. It also keep summer insects at bay. The hunters followed them. Because the darts landed in ice and were cover by fresh snow quickly. The entire thing like new is being found. The coolest of which was a copper atle-atle mounted on a carved serrated antler attached to a wood shaft!
Very cool stuff
It's warming up here along the lake, too. I think it's 10F already. The sun is even out.
We getting a little warmer as well maybe rain today as well. Prov 27 : 17
My current outside temp
What's all that green stuff?
Oh that! Its the underlay for a snow carpet that come one day a year!
I thought it looked familiar.
Carpet has come and gone. You'll see yours soon enough. 2 months and I'll be starting garden plants. Corn, snow peas and acorn squash this year. Plus the strawberries, onions herbs and so on. Just picked up starter pots yesterday!
Oh winter, we all love you !
