It's Still Winter

Waking up to a brutally cold day, we are reminded that it is still winter in these parts. This morning's thermometer reading showed -13C (8.6F) but in the wind it was -24C (-11F) Doggy walks got cancelled and it was Dixie who cancelled on her own. It was as if she knew from the first moment that walking outside was a no-no today. Usually she is bugging us right after her having breakfast to go outside. Not so today. Whereever you go around on the island you've got ice rinks, huge areas covered in concrete-hard ice.

Stepping out into the icy wind hurts your face like thousand needles. I was rather quick in getting the firewood into the house.

While it is very cold, the weather also offers fantastic photo opportunities - that is if one is dressed appropriately.

Quite a different thing to do is baking rolls. Whenever the cold is getting to my nerves I place myself in the kitchen and produce something much more delightful. These turned out really well!


  1. Oh my that sure does look cold, and those rolls looking yummy as well.

  2. Wish I had better news for you,but it looks like several more snow days heading your way.

  3. No matter how cold it is outside, if the sun is shining, it sure is pretty....
    I have the same scene as you waaay over here in Chelan...
