A chilly morning walk found us at the east end of the Stanfield Marsh as dawn broke this morning. It was 6° F when we left the house. We were all bundled up and Peg had a scarf wrapped around her face, but we still got pretty cold out by the ice, waiting for the sun, even Dallas was glad to get home to the warm fire.
An exhilarating and beautiful walk though, even if we didn't go as far as usual.

One always needs to face the extremes to get perspective.

What's an average temperature for this time of year in your area?

One does...


We're wussies out here in California when it comes to cold temps. We don't get cold anything like you do there.

It does get down to around minus 16°F every once in awhile (the lowest I temp I can remember, several different times), however, our average high this time of year is in the mid-thirties I'd say, with lows between zero and the mid-teens F.

Sometimes though we'll have a January or February heat wave, where it gets up in the 70s.

Just no tellin' out here at this elevation...

This morning we got cold through our layers because we were standing in one place too long while I waited for the light.
