It's Been COLD!

You know it's been really cold when you see the temperature has gone up to -15°C and you think 'My, this is so warm'!  It was -31°C this morning, and it did rise to -15 by mid-afternoon, and yes it felt 'warm' in comparison!  (That's from -24°F to 5°F).

I don't know when I've seen a temperature this cold, before you consider the windchill.  Last year was the year of excessive snow; this year is the year of excessive cold!  (Sorry, that 2nd shot is taken through a screen window, a bit blurry).

So this morning it was several shots through windows in the house, not going outside at all.  Shortly after sunrise, these were the shadows across the side yard.  Still about 2' of snow on the level.

Looking out the kitchen window to the east - through that gap in the trees is the 'valley'.

We even had a few small icicles hanging from the eavestrough, somewhat damaged from when the ice came crashing off the roof in January.

And the view through the living room window looking west.  Can I detect a little bit of pink cast across the snow by the rising sun?  All shots taken from indoors, but I'm going to run out of views fast!  Hope these temperatures don't last.

  1. It went up to -14˚C here in Toronto this afternoon and I went for a walk! It felt balmy after the last few days. You were smart to stay in.

  4. The only real difference today was that the winds had died down; otherwise the chill was just as much as yesterday. Cold shots!

  5. I don't blame you for taking photos out of the window when it's this cold. It's difficult to handle a camera in this cold.

  12. We have been spoiled by the last few decades of mild winters. This is way winters a supposed to be. At least that is how I remember them up until the late 70's when they began to warm up.

  17. I can't even imagine that temperature at this point. Living up north we would occasionally see below zero, but never this much!

  18. Beautiful snowy shots! It's been chilly here too. I think we have about 10 above right now.

  19. In spite of the cold you have some gorgeous shots. I know that at a certain level cold becomes painful no matter how low but I don't think I would -31 C. We are going to have wind blowing it in to our area tomorrow.

  20. Gosh ---when I complain about our weather, I need to think about YOU.... We are having a frigid week (frigid for us) here... First we had an Ice Storm --followed by some snow. Looks pretty but very treacherous. AND--our temps are going down to MINUS 10 (F) here a couple of nights this week.... Kinda rare for TN....

    Try to stay WARM. Your photos are amazing...
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  21. Lovely photos! It's been cold here too. We had a little snow yesterday and today the temperature finally got up above freezing. I'm ready for spring.

  22. Yes it was chilly at your place. This is the way winter was back in the olden days when we were much younger. Only - 4 F here yesterday, not anywhere near as cold as winters were in the 1970s -- I miss those real winters.

  23. Merci. Single digits (above zero) is bad for us. I can't imagine this temp.
