Snow is a too good insulation.
Today was supposed to be the coldest day this winter, so is anyone surprised if I say we have above 0C (32F) temperatures and a lot of sunshine today 🙂 🙂 The sunshine hurt my eyes when I went out after work, it is so seldom we see it now days that I think we might be turning to nocturnal creatures now 🙂
I was hoping this cold weather would have frozen the bog enough so we could take a walk on it for once but the thick snow is a too good insulation so it didn’t take long until both Sune and Nova broke through the ice and seconds after it was my turn to do it 🙂 There are no deep holes where we were supposed to walk so we could have kept on walking but my rubber boots leak and the dogs get so muddy that I thought it best to turn back anyway. I have to say I feel disappointed.
I think we’ll walk upstream the creek tomorrow morning after a cold night and this time I’ll find the good wooden bridge so that we can go out on the bog that way instead, my neighbor says the ground is less filled with water down there and we might even get close to the little lake. It all depends on how well Hector’s legs can manage to walk in deep snow, he has had some problems this year when the snow has been a bit deep. I can always go to the lake when ever I want to anyway, Hector is more important.
I’m so tired today that if it hadn’t been so late in the day I would have taken a nap but I fear that if I do I won’t wake up until late tonight instead 🙂 So I’ll make myself a big pot with cocoa, a sandwich or two and then fall asleep in front of the tv, it’s so uncomfortable that I can’t sleep for too long there 🙂
Have a great day!
