-8.7 C (16.34 F) feels like -9 C with no wind (yay!!). Sunrise 8:19 AM sunset 4:25 PM. Partly cloudy. Fog early. High of -6C. Winds less than 5 km/h.
A very mild and sunny weekend, now this is the kind of winter I really enjoy. Everything covered in lots of snow, visually it is compelling as the landscape offers up novel perspectives compared to summer. It's almost like walking into a completely different act in the seasonal play.
Our walks were consumed with Carlos trying to get as many white dingle balls as possible. It is his wont to burrow through all the ditches in his self-appointed task of 'Culvert Inspector.' It's actually more dangerous for him to be poking his head into culverts during the summer months. He has scared a number of surprised animals, and has even been 'speared' by a porcupine. A tough little trooper though, didn't budge or cry/whine when we pulled it out. Dastardly things those, with reverse barbs to make it even more difficult.
