I do hope the predictions for next weekend are wrong.
It was rather warm when I woke up this morning and as warmest today we reached 2,4C (36,3F), so I could hear dripping from the roofs on our way to the bog this morning. I had dressed for much colder weather though so after a while I had to take of the scarf and a short while after that I had to open up my jacket, it felt like I was boiling inside 🙂 I could hear the wind blowing when we went out but didn’t really realise how hard it blew while we were out walking.
I must admit that I got surprised over how much snow it was out there and we couldn’t walk the way we usually do out there because the bushes had gathered so much snow that it reached way above my knees. I’m glad I know the place well because it is easy to get lost out there. I talked loudly all the way since there are lots of animals out there I really don’t want to surprise, like moose and wild hogs 🙂 I could hear them getting away from us the times we came too close to them.
We hadn’t come especially far when I realised we would have to go back again, my rubber boots were filled with snow and it started to get a bit chilly around my feet. I’m so glad I’ve bought new boots so I can wear them next weekend when I’m planning on getting out there again. One thing one never shall do is to think that it will be easy to find the way back by just following ones own foot steps in the snow, especially now since the snow was quite wet. I have several times turned around just to see that there are no prints in the snow at all and sometimes when I do follow my own foot steps they just stop in the middle of nowhere.
Today I realised that the prints that I followed were much smaller than my foot prints (and I’m totally sure no one else were out there at the same time 🙂 ) and that they started close to a bunch of small spruces but there were no other prints anywhere around these spruces 🙂 Bogs are tricky places and should be treated with respect. Well I knew where I were so I had no problems getting back home and the dogs had fun all the time, I can just imagine how many exiting scents they could feel out there.
I’ve also done the laundry like I always do on Sundays so the rest of this day will be rather relaxed and I think I’ll turn of the tv and get up to my bed to read a book. The wind is howling outside and I doubt that we’ll take another walk today. I do hope the weather prediction for later next week are wrong, they showed that we would get down to -20C (-4F) on Friday morning. I just checked and now they show that we’ll have down to -11C (12,2F) instead, much better to be honest. But these prediction will change so many times before next Friday so who knows what it will be 🙂
Have a great day!
