Chilly weather

Its been really cold.  

At 7:00am yesterday morning it was -8C (17.9F) with an apparent temperature of -10C (14F). The coldest winters morning in 17 years.  By midday (when I sat outside in the sun) the temperature had risen 18 degrees to 10C (50F).

This morning wasn't any better.

Check out the black swans below - they are white due to the frost on their feathers.  I wonder if they feel the cold like we do?

Happy weekend to all my lovely readers.

Do you have any special plans?



  1. Having done that sewing, and spent some time in the sun, it has been a good day. Tomorrow is busy as end of month Sundays tend to be, but nothing extraordinary - I hope!
    Hope you get a chance to warm up!

  2. it's a good thing you don't mind cold weather! I'm very glad for our warm days here.
    The photo with the swans is amazing - I've never seen a creature (bird or other animal) with frost on it like that before!

    Yesterday was very busy with something like 6 hours in the garden, followed by a mini-birthday celebration for Miss Dolly... but today has been much quieter! This afternoon was very relaxing - feet up and reading a book! :)

  3. We are having breaking record heat here...another week of 107!
    Stay warm and we are looking of the cooler weather.

  4. Frost on their feathers! I have never seen anything like that - poor babes! They are beautiful - its hard to believe that their feathers keep them warm!


  5. Vicki - I hope their feathers are keeping them warm, I felt sad for them. They need one of your jumpers:)
