    It's 8*F now (-13C). Very glad it's not -24C and worse like some of you.

    But my tractor does not even have a cab on it, so I will continue to whine, thank you.

    Woke up, fed kids, went to heated garage, got in truck, turned on heated seat, drove to barn, walked 15ft to heated barn.....looked at my phone and realized it was -19oC!!!! Didn't feel a thing!!!!

    Thank goodness for heated garages, heated seats and heated barns!!!! The roads this way are good now Spotted, as far as I've heard.....although I did hear on Friday that it took someone EIGHT HOURS to get from Edmonton to Calgary!

    It's been abnormally warm here. Usually by now we've had at least one good snow fall, but all we had was one day where snow fell and it was pretty pathetic. We had a weirdly warm winter last year and I'm wondering if we're going to get a repeat.

    Hubby got the skidoo out yesterday and packed a track around the property so I can cross country ski. The track is just short of 1km. I did make one lap around, but came in because the dog was too cold, even in his winter jacket. Next, he took the my son and his friend out tobogganing behind the skidoo. The kids had great fun, but again, were only good for a couple of rounds at a time without coming in to warm up.

    Later in the afternoon, I got out for a short bareback ride though the neighbours field on my old guy Sam. With his extra thick winter coat, he didn't seem to mind. Despite the snow, the footing out here wasn't too bad.

    Once I get over the initial shock of plowing, shovelling and shivering, I have to say that I do enjoy playing outside in the winter.

    Isn't a skidoo made for the water??? I am having a hard time picturing this.

    You are thinking of a Seadoo. These links should clarify the difference.
