A prolonged period of very cold wind chills is expected. Bitterly cold arctic air combined with gusty north winds will result in extreme wind chill values of minus 30 to minus 40 today. HOLLY MOLLY !! that's cold ! BRR !!!!

Good thing the sun has decided to rise this morning or it would be very cold and gloomy where I prefer very cold and sunny lol . FEBUARY 2015 (27 of 31)

Miggs just pops out to do her business and comes right back in  , in this cold . She really doesn’t understand why we cant go for a walk when it is this cold so she keeps giving me the sad puppy doe eyes lol !

Each day we have had snow fall and it is piling up like crazy and every day Papa has to go out and snow blow , I am soo happy to have that snow blower .

I wish this cold weather would just go away.. Cooking on the grill in the winter sounds great, now I want a yummy steak.. Cute shots of Miggs. I hope Miggs enjoys the snow.. Have a happy Sunday!

Love your indoor pictures, Elaine. Your home looks so cozy. Can you believe the weather we are having. I'm sitting here at home worrying about the birds at our feeders at the property. Not sure if we'll go out today but if we do it's the first thing I'll take care of. I'm sure the feeders are close to empty. I had a Pileated Woodpecker show up yesterday. So cool. Deb

I don't think I would like it this cold although I love looking at your snow shots. Miggs does not seem to mind at all. Glad you enjoyed your winter BBQ!

We've been experiencing similar weather. We didn't get a ton of snow like we usually do but the bitter temps are hanging on. I don't know what the wind chill factor is but I know it must be a brutal number! We've let our grill stay somewhat buried this winter so we haven't tried to use it. We have in the past though and it always tastes so delightful to have a juicy steak come off of it! Looks like Miggs enjoys getting out and finding things to get into! Snowblowers are a Godsend!! I like the sunlit picture on your sunflower pitcher!

It's an indoor day for us too. We did take the kids sledding yesterday, however. Your dinner sounds great.

Here's a snippet about our weather, and it doesn't even mention the crazy windshill today: "Today is ‪#‎Ottawa‬'s 24th day since Jan 1 with temps below -20°C. Most since 1994."

Just too cold! But it is beautiful.

Pamela Gordon said...

It sure does look cold there Elaine! I hope that doesn't come here this week! We don't barbecue in the winter at all but always look forward to that first taste sometime in May. Have a great week!

Stay warm, that's so cold...and is it normal for February for you to get that?


Here we are feeling warmish, and the snow was melting like crazy....not that it will last.


William Kendall said...

We've been catching up on our snowfall totals as of late, and it's bitterly cold today, with a windchill.

Michelle said...

Stay warm!!!!!

Ida said...

Wow again I can't imagine living through all that snow. Poor little doggie, but Miggs doesn't seem to mind to much. Wow grilling outside in that weather...he gets kudos for that and for blowing the snow. I liked the sunlight shining in your home making it look so inviting and cozy.

Faye Henry said...

Your meal sounds yummy.. I would so rather have cold temps then what we have right now.. Our house is snowed in almost to the roof. I can't see out of several windows... Only in Canada, eh?

Our thermometer is lower than yours! At -32 and falling at the moment.

Goodness me, I cannot imagine what that is like! Stay safe and warm! xx

Now, there's a serious cook, out in the elements cooking dinner. I imagine it tasted all the better for being prepared on a winter day.
