January 2, 2015 Five deer in the backyard.
They high-tailed it out of there when I whistled to them.
A beautiful Monday morning sunrise, January 5, after a snowstorm on Sunday.
The garden has a white blanket on it again.
By mid-afternoon on Monday it was very cold and blustery in the gusting winds.
That isn't fog. It's blowing snow!
The wind was wicked as it licked at the snow and lifted it across the field.
It has been very cold all week with the temperature staying around -18C or zero F in the day and going down as low as -26 at night. We're used to it but it's still a shock to the system when one has to be out in it. I did venture out on Tuesday to my friend's house for tea in the afternoon and on Wednesday afternoon to a funeral for a friend who died too young from cancer.
Grace Memorial Baptist Church, Fredericton, NB
While waiting for the service to start I couldn't help but notice the beautiful windows with the bright sunlight outside which was streaming in from the windows behind us. It was a beautiful home going celebration for a wonderful lady who is dearly missed.
On Thursday morning we were greeted with -26 temperatures and a gorgeous sundog in the sky. There were actually two of them, one on either side of the sun, but I wasn't about to step outside to get pictures of the whole scene! Plus, the one on the right would have been behind trees.
This is what -26 looks like. Thursday, January 8. The shine is from ice pellets and freezing rain that fell last Sunday after the snow.
I'm watching the Amaryllis slowly open more each day. One can almost see it moving. :)
It's snowing here this morning. A light gentle snowfall with no wind. South and east of here it's a snowstorm. The temperature has actually warmed up to -12 at mid-morning from -24 at 11:00 PM last night.
Well that's a bit of what's going on here.....rather quiet.....too cold to go anywhere unless I need to.
How is your week going? Are you under this cold spell too? I hope it doesn't last too long, don't you? Have a good and cozy weekend!
