They don’t die just because we have frost.
As predicted the temperature dropped last night and it dropped all the way down to -5C (23F). It was too dark outside to get any photos I’m afraid but I can tell You that the world was sparkling in the weak light we did have. I also had to scrape the car windows but thankfully it wasn’t any concrete ice this time. The only good thing with scraping ice from the car windows is that they do get clean, especially the one in the back 🙂
One could believe that these low temperatures actually would kill all the insects out there but oh how disappointed one would be when it got warm again 🙂 Still a few normal black flies around but it seems as if most moose flies are gone. They do have a short season as it is and it usually ends with the first frost. Mosquitoes however seems to thrive when the nights are as cold as this one was. There were a gazillion of them out in the forest and even if it doesn’t itch any longer I still don’t like it when they crawl around all over me.
I didn’t buy myself a second one of the first one I bought to myself as a birthday present, instead I bought a second one of the second one, smaller though and lighter though (I hope 🙂 ) and now I’ve spent much more than I ever intended too 🙂 So no christmas present to me from myself this year.I still haven’t gotten the first thing I bought but I have the second one here at home and the second of the second thing is on its way since this morning :-)These things are used together but I can only use one of the second things at a time 🙂 I feel that I’ve given You plenty of leads now 🙂
It’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. I’ve struggled for a long time with the fire in the stove and finally it looks like I’m winning but there’s no use in putting the kettle on, it would take forever until that water came close to boiling. Thankfully I have my trusted water boiler to use instead.
Have a great day!
