Re: Weather!

One of my pups has got a bionic leg following a bad break last year, and she howls in pain when we put her out in below zero temperature as the metal in her leg gets very cold

Looks like Thursday's going to be the fun one. 3-4 days of sub zero temps then rain. We'll have to get our skates (or chains) on.
Do not use chains on ice

Ice-skating down the highway sounds like fun though

That's incorrect.

Quite often up in the mountains, there's thick black ice on roads going through forests and no way of getting up them without chains.

Re: Weather!

Correct, but back to weather on the plains, why were our cars not frosted up this morning?

Really low air humidity. Same reasons why the roads are bone dry.

But that's indoors I assume. It's higher outside. My outside gauge is reading 46%.

I guess she would need a sock. Or tights

And good luck to make anything fit on a 2.5kg of a pinscher

WHAT A CHEAT!
So I wake up to the sun kissing me good morning and I think "ha, ain't life lovely and weather forecasts total BS". After a while I wonder why there is so much noise outside and notice itt's windy. Fair enough, just out of curiosity I check the temperature:

-9°C ?!?

Sod that! This is gonna kill me!
Outside temperature or inside

Outside. If you see me run around inside you'd think it's South-American summer (gonna cost me a fortune with the next utilities statement, no doubt )

But hey, when I had to go outside today, it was the males whining, no me! Just for the record.

Yeah, but at least it was warm enough to snow! Too cold for that here.

They did? Wow, not seen Kent in serious snow yet.

I keep telling myself "it's good for my skin and it's circulation. LOL. Anything to help me bear it.
