No it isn’t.
It’s started again.
Now it’s stopped.
That’s stopped too.
Real feel temperature is minus 10.
Is that the sun?
It’s still windy.
Now it’s snowing again.
And it’s windy.
This has been our day, snowing off and on from the moment we got up.
But the wind is constant.
And it’s cold.
We’ve given Maggie two mini walks today, and despite heavy coats, hats and gloves, both times we came home frozen to the core. We remembered to put her little jacket on and when she got back, she curled up with her babies in front of the radiator as we supped tea.
Temperatures are due to hit a real feel of minus 11 tonight.
The hot water bottle is in and extra blankets are already on the bed.
Our bungalow is well insulated and double glazed.
We are glad we invested in a new boiler and should the temperature in the house fall below 15º during the night, the heating kicks in.
We took these pictures through the lounge window about 5pm this evening.
Photos: opposite, slightly left, and our front lawn
It’s bitterly cold outside, and we shall not be going anywhere other than the front lawn for Maggie to do her business before bedtime.
But even then we shall be wrapping up, her too.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

It has been like here all weekend
Keep warm and safe Betty Louise.
My darling Hurley Dog ended up at the vet last week. He has caught a very bad cold and the vet has said his little feet and damaged from the cold. We have purchased little doggy shoes for him (which he does not love or like or want or in his opinion need) and there are no more walks for him until it warms up a bit. The things we do for our babies.
We bought baby socks for Maggie’s foot last year and taped it with micropore. She was not impressed, but it did keep her foot clean on our walks. At 5 pairs for a pound, that was ten walks.
Hahhaha yes we looked at baby booties but Hurley did not appreciate them AT ALL! Actually he hasn’t like the alternative much either.
I don’t think dogs like things on their feet as a rule.
