We've had such a mild winter. Little to no snow, lots of sunshine, and temperatures that seemed downright balmy at times. Chris hasn't had to use the snow thrower at all this year and only back-dragged the driveway a couple time (mainly to run the tractor I think). Sure, we've had ice to contend with and the wind has been high at times but overall it's been quite pleasant outside.
And then this weekend hit. February decided to nail us with sub-zero temperatures. How cold? Not sure - the outside thermometer broke. The weather station says it's -16 in our nearby town but we're often colder than them. So I'm going to guess -20 (why not?).
Poor Cooper is making quick work of her morning potty break - outside, go, inside, curl up by the wood stove. Looks like it's going to be a good day to do inside stuff.
