Coffee At Steve’s Country #25.

Hello and Happy Monday to all of you! I am late today that’s for sure, so I will probably keep this a bit shorter. It’s cold today. It was -29C (-22F) this morning and with the wind it felt like -39! And whether F or C that temp is about that same, since -40 is equal for both. It is supposed to warm up to -17C (2F) this afternoon, but since it’s still -28C (-20F) I really don’t think it will get that warm. And it’s supposed to be even colder tonight. True winter temps have found us finally. Not that I missed them, I really didn’t. Yesterday wasn’t as cold as today by any means, but when I went outside the cold air burned in my lungs. I have never had that happen before, except in very cold temps.

Seems my lungs can’t handle that cold anymore. I will have to make sure my face is covered all the time if the temp reaches a certain degree. That is probably another leftover system from having Covid last year. Seems a lot of people report that problem. I didn’t think it would be necessary to cover my face just going out to feed the birds this morning, but as soon as I went outside I had trouble breathing, I just gasped and struggled quite a bit and I was only out there for maybe 3 minutes. I have never experienced that before and yet I am very much used to cold temps, it’s a normal thing in this country.

So out comes my scarf while this cold weather hangs around for the next few days. Theodore showed up first this morning, poor bird. He kept changing feet frequently today trying to keep them warm tucked under all those feathers of his. All the birds have their feet tucked in their feathers today. The pics today, as usual for Monday, show the same part of the river path in summer and in winter. I can honestly say, I prefer summer. But winter is with us for another 2 or 3 months yet, I’m really hoping its only 2 more months this year! But I’m happy either way, there’s beauty around in winter too, but sometimes it has to be enjoyed from indoors. Have a very happy Monday everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    And I prefer summer as well… 🙂
