It is a touch cool this morning, the temperature dropped through the night, with it sitting now at -19.1 C | -2.38 F. It will warm up a lot as the day moves forward. At least for today … before dropping back down tonight and into tomorrow, with a bit of snow thrown in for good measure. It is a nice sunrise this morning looking out. Makes my whole day when I am able to watch the sun get out of bed. I often wonder how many people realize just how lucky we are to have it.
Highway 522 is pretty well clear throughout, but there are a lot of icy sections. There are also a lot of deer roaming around the area, crossing the highway, so a person has to really keep their eyes open for them. If you see one, there is usually more close behind.
Yesterday my wife and I did manage to get the snow cleaned off our decks, along with our neighbour, she is a very good friend of ours. Spry as a young kitten and only 94 years young. I also managed to get our snowblower woke up and cleaned out our driveway. I am glad we did, as if we don’t, and it gets too cold it makes it just that much harder to remove. Especially where the snow plow throws in the snow at the end of our driveway. Heavy wet stuff out there. Joys of living just off the highway. But it is one of the nicest areas to reside in. And our home is located far enough away from the highway that the traffic doesn’t bother us any.
Today my wife and I will recoup a bit after yesterdays work out and work here inside where it is warm. This time of year, the wood heat is sure feeling good. Nothing takes the cold out of the body more than heating with wood. I also get a lot of exercise moving the firewood, cutting, splitting, piling and then feeding our wood furnace.
Have a great day. GW
