It's the Ides of January! Good dark and early morning from cold Kingston, Ontario. It's -19C now, will drop to -22C, then go up to -14C during daylight hours (and drop to -23C at night). It gets cold when it's clear. This oil sketch is by Lorraine Franklin "Frank" Casey. He lived in northern Ontario, where the cold is real. Tell us how cold it is where you are!
On this date: Born: Don Van Vliet, a.k.a. Captain Beefheart, 1941; Earl Hooker, 1930; Died: Rosa Luxembourg and Karl Liebknecht, executed without trail in Munich, 1919.
Have a great day!
Have a super Saturday everyone. It’s 2F/-17C on the back porch with wind chill (or “feels like” if you prefer) of -17F/-26C.. I’ll be bundling up for my walks today.
These photos are of the same tree. It’s on the banks of a bend in the Shawsheen River. The river and a steeply sloping bank along with other trees made it difficult to get an unobstructed shot of the whole tree. The exposed roots are amazing.
G’mornin’ everybody. The mild spell continues here with highs around 42*F. I’m all for it, makes my walks easy & fun. Have a great day!
Good Morning from Northeastern Wisconsin. +4f right now and light wind. We are far enough from the 'big lake' (70 miles) that no lake effect snow here but supposed to get some snow showers with temps in the mid teens later this afternoon. Wind is supposed to shift to the south and warm up into mid 20's tomorrow.
No specific plans for today, start the fireplace, some reading, a nap or then pizza and beer for dinner tonight. She may watch one of the playoff games but that is a good time for me to nap or some pickin' in the family room.
Have a good day, keep warm and safe.

Good Morning from Sooke!! It's *6c. here but going up to *9c. today.
we are having a tsunami advisory but I haven't looked up where it's coming from.
Years ago they put up signs around town that we were in a tsunami zone but local real estate agents took/knocked them down because it might hurt bushiness!
