January 12 - 2009 12/365

What do you get when you have several feet of snow and a prairie full of rabbits? Stripped bushes, many tiny prints and a whole lot of little round droppings. They are everywhere. Right now there is so much snow that they are, undoubtedly, having a hard time.

We are supposed to hit as low as minus 40 this week! Minus Forty!!! Next week it looks like it will be +30F, that's a 70 degree difference in just one week! The odd thing is, we just go with it. We live by the weather channel though. I get up, check the weather, and dress for the day. I take a coat, wear layers and try to avoid the wind. You never want to get caught out in the cold. With temps that low, one wouldn't make it long.

I was going to take more photos tonight as the snow is so white and fluffy and the wind is just blowing it everywhere, but it is moist snow and I was afraid it would stick to the lens and it's dark around here by 5. Besides, it's unbelievably cold! LOL

We actually brought one of our outdoor cats inside tonight. She will be a room-mate to us for a week until it gets back to 30 above! Our highs are still -4 and -8! I can't believe it and thank goodness it won't last long -- we hope!
