it's freaking cadaver cold

[so cold]

[so cold]

[my sister and i penned that term as a little morbid joke when we were young artists drawing anatomy from cadavers in Toronto] - [wink]

i grew up in Canada, so i read the Celsius side.. but no matter what side you're on, it's still C O L D.. i personally don't mind the cold at all.. winters in Canada were so much different than here in New York.. the difference is, in Canada, snow came fairly early and it never really thawed.. and it was always windy.. they never cancelled school due to just snow, it was the wind and the snow drifts that would cover the roads.. hardly a hill where i am from, so wind definitely made it seem much colder.. so these temperatures are reminiscent of my growing up..

as much as i don't mind it.. i think about the outdoor critters.. i know any critters living in the northeast are well equipped to handle these cold dips, but i still consider them, and i worry about them.. i throw out mounds of sunflower seeds for the wild birds that are starting to rise.. peanut butter bread for the squirrels that may dare to venture out.. apples for the deer and scraps for the opossum that has taken up residence under my she-shed..

but i need to check on my chickens.. i know they are winter hardy breeds and they have a small coop to help keep the warmth in.. but i still scramble them up some eggs with oatmeal and tuna and corn.. and while that cools, i am going to bundle up and head out to see how my girls are doing..

i'll be back for the hand writing prompt after that, and probably after a hot shower.. see ya in a bit..

That's brutal!  Nice shot. I like the blue tones. You know, with this blog  you're a little early. "cold" for the 365 challenge isn't due until January 27th smile  Hope it doesn't stay that cold until then....

We're expecting the snow tonight... 
That means 3cm (1,1811 inches) in the garden, almost nothing in the street, no more snow by noon. 
The population is already freaking out. I went to the grocery this morning, just in case... 
My fridge is empty, but animals are full of food, like we're waiting for the apocalypse.
Stay warm my dear! blue heart

Listen, Andi, New York, THAT is the super north (I have a feeling you wouldn't be the only one screaming "We're all going to die" in those temperatures). In Flanders we have a very mild -2 to 2 degrees Celsius now. That's fourteen times warmer than where Sherry lives smile

"This is what Encyclopædia Britannica" says:

45th Parallel: North (Italy and 10km of NY)
46th + 47th Parallel: Super North (You guys) 48th to 50th: Hyper North

50th to 90th has no "North" in the name... it's just WHITE.
"Where do you go on Holiday?"
"I go into the WHITE" (And you know it's REALLY cold!)

The White ... Is that where the White Walkers are ? I mean beyond The Wall ? smile

As it was not already difficult to love me... smile 
I must admit I've NEVER seen an episode of Games of Throne (Not read the book either)

(But I'm  nerd enought to know who the White Walkers are... does it help?)

As being one who never saw - just to name something - a single episode of Star Wars, I can relate to that smile

I could write a book about your statement. I've already the title: 
The sad, SAD life of a Flander's cowboy.

Nah, I saw Buck Rogers, Logan's Run, Battlestar Galactica (the original series) and Blake's Seven ... Something silly like Star Wars, that would make me sad innocent
