We have highs in the low 20's and lows in the mid-teens. We have snow from yesterday and a layer of ice underneath. It's like a skating rink in my driveway and we've had it plowed! It's very windy too. I don't think we're supposed to get much accumulation though.

Snowing .... expecting another 4-5 inches on top of what is already there from previous snow.

Weather here in the PNW has been hard on the wildlife too. Our sunflower feeder usually lasts 3 - 4 days between fills. It was cleaned and filled yesterday and is nearly empty this morning. Also,wWe've had to bring the hummer feeder in at night to keep the nectar from freezing.

Even though it's sunny, our witch has her brass bra on. A bit windy and the temp is only about 19F. Don't want to think what the windchill temp is. Supposed to get to the single digits tonight or lower tonight. This is the coldest it's been so far this season.

I'm going to give my outside kitties extra food and keep their water dish "liquid." I almost wish I could bring them in tonight, but that would not be a good idea.

Tomorrow's supposed to be cold, too.

I have always wondered where outside cats go in this cold? In the country we knew they went into the barns and would be just fine. Not sure about around here.
It is -3 here right now, I feel for any left out in the cold right now...
