It has been fairly cold for the past few weeks, and though we have some bright sun today, it still is -26 C out there. Everything is sparkling today! Inside, we're still working on the leftovers from the Christmas feast. I hope everyone out there is keeping warm!

Snowmobilers have been out on the lake ice for a few weeks now, thought they are likely the bravest (stupidest?) ones. However, the temperatures of -20C and below this past week probably did add thickness to the lake ice. Soon we'll be having ice fishing contests and then the sled dog races will be upon us. Our dog has focused squarely on barking until she gets inside to watch television with us and eats the kids snacks when they are not paying attention. Her winter coat will be growing in soon.

Otherwise in blogger land, the great Google has told me that I ran out of storage space for the blog and its pictures. Thus, I will have to pay for more. I don't want to stop blogging for now, so I'll pay them the few dollars to keep posting with photos...
