No riding for the past few days because of the weather. The highs have been in the single digit and low teens with a very dangerous wind chill. For example, this morning, it was -3 with a wind chill dropping the temperature for mammals and humans to -16.
Around noon, the winds dissipated, the sun shone brightly and the temperature topped off at 18 F, (-8 C). It felt a little like spring after what we experienced over the past few days. By Thursday the temperature is expected to top off at around 50 F (10 C).
During the winter months, we put food out for whatever critter or bird wants to eat. Except for those of the same breed. The blue jays fight with each other, the squirrels, and cardinals do the same. Oddly enough they don’t fight with those outside their family.
