I know I'm Canadian, but I am starting to really dislike winter.  Yes, I like snow (especially when my car gets stuck in it...), and that pattern frost makes (on the inside and outside of my windshield...), but when during the week it gets up to -10 or so, then when I have time it's going down to -20 with a wind chill that would freeze your buns right off.  Plus with all the snow, it's making the roads very difficult to drive on, particularly the road to the barn.

There is a hierarchy when it comes to snow removal up here.  First there is the school bus routes (makes sense), the main routes, then the secondary routes, etc., then finally the range roads.  With the amount of snow we've been getting, the range roads won't be cleared for about 3-4 days.  Tomorrow I'm going to try to get to the barn since I just need to have some Koda time, but why must it be so bleepin' cold?!?!

... and I just checked the weather network, and Saturday night it's supposed to feel like -49!!!!!

Decision made - going to the barn to make sure my boy is wrapped up snug as a bug in his multiple rugs.
One small plus about the insane cold temperatures: too cold to snow :)

Plus, stay tuned: photos of Koda being a model with his new five star bridle!


  1. I hate cold and snow. I don't know how you can stay alive up there, but I applaud you for doing it.

  2. It's more out of necessity than anything :)
    Looks like you guys are getting a fair share of snow this year!
