It's Chilly

The weather forecasters didn't lie. It's cold out.
You don't want to touch the doorknob on the inside of my garage without gloves!
I got out to the barn on Monday afternoon, which is looking like it's the nicest day of the week with a high of -26 celsius. The ponies were brought in and checked to make sure they were warm (they were) and given their grain before turning them back out again.
Frosty on the inside, but toasty on the inside (under the blankets).
They've got round bales in front of them since it's so cold so they are liking that. I'm hoping that they don't get too chunky over this cold spell.

I'm mostly staying at home, streaming far too much TV, spending far too much time on the computer, and trying far too hard not to spend money shopping online. I hope I don't get too chunky over this cold spell.
It's supposed to feel like -48 for the next two nights. That's -54 for those of you in the US.
The current forecast calls for this to break next Monday, with forecasted highs of -9 on Monday and Tuesday. I'm still off on those days, so I'm hoping to get a couple of rides in before I go back to work. It just seems like such a waste of time off if I don't manage to ride.


  1. Feeling like -53*C tomorrow morning. Whhyyyy do we live here? Lol.

    1. I know! Why can't we go to Florida for 6 months a year?
      Oh yeah. Because we have horses. And no money.
      I expect to fully enjoy that -53 windchill from the comfort of my own bed, under 2 duvets and blankets. I don't have to work so I'm sleeping in. Can I sleep in until Monday?

    2. I wish I didnt have to work through this!
      But I am glad it didn't get as cold as they said it would !

  2. Reading this made me cold. That is all lol
