Brr It's Cold

Today is another COLD day in Manitoba.
The temperatures dropped down to -28C or -18F
Overnight the weather man is predicting -45C or -49F windchill.
That is just to cold for me,hopefully schools are cancelled for tomorrow.
The above picture was taken south of our little town.
This wagon has seen better days,yet still makes a good picture.
The Blue Jays always show up when there are peanuts available. This good looking fellow is waiting his turn,or perhaps waiting for me to move away from the window. An American Robin has been hanging around all winter. I wonder if he is second guessing himself by now. On Saturday he had three of his relatives with him, guess there is safety in numbers. Life cannot be easy for these birds in temperatures like ours. Great are the works of the Lord. Psalm 111:2 All photos above taken by Ruth

  3. Temperatures were like that during the two winters my husband and I were in college in Three Hills,Alberta - I'll never forget it! Hopefully you'll get a Chinook soon?

  4. Ruth, I cannot even imagine temperatures that low. We feel that we are really cold when it goes down between 0-10 degrees Fahrenheit. That's what it is supposed to do here on Thurs. night/Fri morning. Now that is COLD for Tennessee.

    Poor robins.. I cannot imagine being outside in that weather. Please keep feeding the critters!!!!

    Love the wagon picture.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  5. Wow, that is cold Ruth. We're supposed to get some of it tomorrow, Thursday and on into Friday.
    I didn't know Robins hung around in the winter this late. I really like the wagon.
    Have a great rest of the week.

  6. Sooooo cold, Tennessee is more cold than I like. Been thinking I would go to the mountains this week, but cannot seem to bring myself to do it and it is just in the 20s here. Going to be 9 later in the week. Seems hot to everybody up north, but it sure feels cold to me.

    I like the birds but I really like the wagon photo.

  8. These are all great photos, but I really like the wagon and the second bluejay. It certainly looks cold where you are! We were suppose to get a severe drop in temps, but I think that has changed again.

    Great photos of the blue jay. One of my favorites.

  13. Ruth - that first shot of the wagon wheels is awesome! I LOVE it!
    The birds are thankful for your treats, I'm sure - and that robin - YES - I bet he's wishing he went south!!!

  15. Beautiful, beautiful photos of the blue jay and the Robin. Your robin looks like he's "on alert!"

  16. It is going to be colder here in KY than it has been in a long time (of course not as cold as Manitoba), but it looks like 0 degrees tonight with with windchills in the negative teens. The sad thing is we aren't going to get anything but flurries to go with our cold weather. I could tolerate the cold if we were getting some snow to go along with it.

  17. Thanks for sharing the photos of the snow - it looks beautiful (love that wagon wheel shot), but I wouldn't be out in the cold getting pictures, so I'm just glad to see yours!

  18. Dear Ruth, Stay in and stay warm. I feel so sorry for the creatures when the weather is so bad.

  19. We think it's cold here if it's below the freezing point!! I can't imagine living where it gets THAT cold! Like the pictures!

  20. It was -25C here this morning, but you are considerably colder than that. I cannot imagine seeing a robin at this time of year.

  21. Hi Ruth! I hopped over here from Robin's Nest. Your photos are beautiful. I can only imagine how bitterly cold it must be, but the snow just makes all the other colors pop! What an amazing Creator is our God! Blessings!

  22. I love the old, snow-covered wagon scene, it looks bitter cold, really tells a story and makes you shiver.
    We thought -1 was bad here last night.
