Today will be overcast with a high of 19C. It will be breezy with southerly winds at 10 to 20 km/h.
Tonight will start overcast in the evening, then mostly cloudy. The low will be 11C with winds from the SW at 15 to 25 km/h.
------------------------------------------------- ---
I did as I said yesterday and got Abbey out for her walk and even brought her to the friends on the way home. The always have 2 treats for her but only give her the first one. When Abbey has finished her milk bone she now sits and looks for the second. She sure is a spoiled dog. :)
The geese must have taken a day off, I didn't see or hear any while outside yesterday. I'll see if the Queen will drive by the lake today and see if they've abandoned the prairie yet. A few have been known to overwinter here and are feed once the little oxbow, our Crescent Lake, freezes over.

Good Afternoon, Tony!

Glad to learn that you sound more chipper from your post above and are able to get out and about with Abbey again!

I'm not sure if you read my previous post of a couple of weeks ago, but I had to go offline for six to seven weeks to care for my own hubby. He suffered a mild stroke on July 24th, pneumonia on Aug. 15th and then a trans-ischemic attack (related to the stroke and which required overnight hospitalization) on Aug. 29th. Fortunately, new meds and changes in dosages to his others have proven quite successful to date. He also appears more chipper and active now, but must work daily on his home physicial therapy, i.e., speech (pronunciations and allowing time for his thoughts to process his words) as well as strengthening and flexing his right hand with P.T. tools, etc.

Currently, we're battening down the hatches for what appears to be a potentially serious storm system, with accompanying high wind gusts, arriving later tonight and lasting well into tomorrow. I think we'll be okay, as our city seems to lie just outside the borderline of the high warning area. Fingers crossed!

Hope you continue to improve daily and that your lovely Queen and family remain well, safe and warm! Have a decent rest of the day and week!

Good morning Tony. The geese have probably gone to grab their coats and scarves for tonite. Damn that is going to be cold for you guys early this year, poor MUSH is in for some frost in his area, we are suppose to go down to 44F...No open windows tonite and right now its raining too hard here. By all we are suppose to get showers off and on all day. Not going to the lab this morning so will get some stuff done in the house today. I will do it tomorrow when the sun is back. Highs here will be in the low 60s. Refreshing....

Anyway glad you got out yesterday and had a nice visit with your friend.

Have a safe day.
