Today will see increasing cloudiness with snow beginning late this afternoon. The wind northwest at 30 km/h gusting to 50 will become light this morning. Todays high will be -16C3F). The wind chill this morning is -33C(-27F).
Tonight will bring another 5cm.(2 inches) of snow as the temperature hovers near -16C(3F).

Yesterday Abbey and me took advantage of the warmer weather and got out for a short walk.
The Queen has rehired her snowman again this year. He gets paid on a monthly basis and says this is a bad year for him, after paying his helper he's only making $4 a yard and still has to pay for fuel for the snow blower ad leaf blower he uses.

It's a gamble to charge by the month, instead of by the week, or by the snow event. On the plus side, it provides a steady income, but, as this guy's finding out, it'll bite you in the behind if it snows a lot! Kudos to him for keeping his word, but I hope he don't become bankrupt in the process! The next guy could mean more $$$!

I guess we'll be waiting on the next big freeze that's coming from your neck of the woods!

Hi Tony. Glad to see yuo are doing ok on the Prairie. Sure has been a cold week here and more to come. Don't think we will be out of the Deep Freeze until after Groundhog day. For us, its been the horrible winds blowing snow around and rattling windows making it feel a lot colder than it is. I know how you feel with those minus 25s and minus 30s. Windchill factors here have been that this past week, more to follow this week.

Anyway dear ones, keep warm, keep well and most of all stay safe. Catch you during the next thaw...LOL

Hi, Tony.

You DO have some snow out there. There's several inches at the bottom of your basement window.

So, you did manage to get out for a walk. I know Abbey enjoyed it.

Sounds to me like your snowman is hinting at a raise.

Good to hear that you were able to get out and about a bit. I think there still are a few ice patches around, but they'll be entirely gone by this morning. We're already nearly to freezing, and are supposed to get up to 50 or so. Good-bye, ice!

I did have to crack ice in the birds' water bowls again, and they say we've got more real cold on the way. (Well. "Real" cold for us.) I think a few of the plants will stay inside for a few more days.
