you know it's cold when...

1) The dogs who normally love to play outside only run out long enough to do their business then zoom back to the door waiting anxiously for me to open it.

2) The garage door begins to go up then creaks and proceeds to close itself. (a problem fixed when i scraped the ice off the cracks in the door)

3) The sliding glass door is frozen shut.

4)The furnace pumps continuously all day to maintain a liveable temperature.

5) The dogs hop on only 2 of their feet at a time while outside while the other 2 thaw.

6) The snow stays frozen to the car even at highway speeds.

So we're having a bout of really cold weather, not as cold as Winnipeg but cold nonetheless. I count anything below -15 C really cold. Then add a windchill and I practically go into hibernation mode.

The cold weather is good for getting things inside the house done. Such as putting up Christmas decorations perhaps. I think I'm going to do some baking today, I've been hankering some ginger something to have with my hot chocolate...mmm

winter wonderland

It's official, the snow is here to stay, yay! I am so happy at the thought of a white Christmas. Not so much for the shovelling but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make, besides our snowblower is finally fixed!
