It was -2c last night, we have had a lot of gales over the last week so the wind chill factor was low.
Last years winter was the coldest for a long time -17c.

Down here it's time to clean up, fill, and hang the bird feeders for our winter-visiting feathered friends. We get lots of various kinds of warblers to join the local cardinals, jays, and doves. In a couple of weeks hurricane season should end and I can put the storm shutters back in the garage until next May. That's also time to start eating the emergency canned food supplies that were laid in. Unless Mother Nature with her strange sense of humor brews up something in the Carribbean.

OK, -17C must feel colder in the UK with the humidity. Thats about our average winter temp in a warmer winter. Usually we have about a week of good hard -30C or lower.

Its currently -3C and not going to warm up much past freezing today. Temps are supposed to start dropping over this week. I filled both feeders yesterday and both are nearly empty today. Hungry little birdies! I should probably put out a suet ball.

It's a misty, moisty morning, not freezing yet. I think I'm going for a walk, love this weather.

You might also look to see if your snowshoe hares are whitening up.

I just saw a couple of Granola Girls with their dreads stuck in stocking caps and wearing long johns under their skirts. University towns are so much fun!
