It's a balmy minus 14 this morning at the Chateau! And that is before the wind chill factor, which is more than 30 below zero! Yes, you read that right! With so much of the country under piles of snow and ice and record breaking cold temps, spring is sounding pretty good right about now!
Our local news last night said that it's colder here in Michigan than at the South Pole! Now I feel so much better knowing that, hahaha!
I snapped these photos yesterday, to give you an idea of all the snow we have here, but of course the pictures don't do it justice. We received at least a foot of snow on Sunday, on top of what we already had.
No worries, I snapped away from the comforts of inside, no frost bite for me!
There is a birdbath under here, somewhere!
Ok, this is the one picture I stepped outside to take, but only for a second! This is right off from our back deck. Hubby had to shovel a spot for Katie to go out and do her business. It was way to deep for her to even walk in.
One of our bird feeding stations in the back yard. Notice all of the snow on the roof of the gazebo feeder? I was enjoying watching this pretty blue jay. He was all puffed up trying to keep warm. I feel so sorry for the wild life and the homeless in this weather. It is dangerous to be out for more than just a few moments.
We have a heated bird bath, which is a real hit. Just look at those huge icicles hanging from it!
I snapped this from the patio door in our bedroom. Notice the huge drift on our front deck?
And the next two shots from our living room looking out to the deck. That is alot of snow!!!
We are fortunate to have blue birds visit our bird bath. Some days 5 or 6 land at one time, it's such a treat! Of course I never have the camera handy when that happens, but I did manage to snap a photo of one, below!
And this is how our Katie enjoys spending a snow day, working on her tan in the sun room!:)
Our usual daily walks have been put on hold until we warm up a bit.
Have a great day, and keep warm and snug!
