Well, of course it’s all relative. For our kids in Canada, this isn’t such cold weather. But for us thin-blooded southerners, it is tooooooo cold!
By our standards, it’s supposed to at least get above freezing during the day here, but it’s the middle of the day and the thermometer isn’t moving up far enough for that.
The weatherman says we’re not going to get that extra 10 degrees today.
It’s so cold Samson, our male llama, doesn’t bother to stand up to eat his hay.
I guess he figures there’s no need to get his legs and belly cold!
It’s so cold our little heater isn’t keeping the water thawed in the birdbath. . .
Of course, we DO have a better heater somewhere around here. Last spring The Farmer put it away somewhere he knew he’d be able to find it. There’s just one wee problem… we can’t find it.
It’s so cold that the broad-leaved evergreens all have droopy leaves. . .
This Rosebay Rhododendron looks kind of pitiful, as does the leather leaf mahonias, azaleas and what not.
It’s so cold the pond surface is more than half frozen.
If we’ve got to have a frozen pond, it’d be more fun if the ice was thick enough for ice skating. However, it certainly has the turtles basking log frozen in place.
I’m thinking we’re not going to see any of the turtles out sunbathing anytime soon.
It’s so cold the water is frozen solid in the tub on the back porch.
Usually the water spouting out of the frog’s mouth keeps enough flow to keep the water from freezing. Instead it just made a little pile of ice and finally quit running altogether.
It’s so cold our Maremma sheepdog, Neffie, is staying huddled in a corner instead of perched on top of a hill keeping watch.
It’s so cold our llamas have started using pallets as windbreaks.
Most of the time they don’t pay attention to the cold since they have some pretty thick wool. But for now, they’re avoiding the cold as much as possible!
It’s so cold. . . well, you get the idea. We’re not used to such shivery weather.
Is it time for spring yet?
