It’s been a meagre -20 degrees centigrade (that’s -2.2 F) when we go out in the mornings. Winter was long overdue. But this. This is cold. Day after day. Even Lila has trouble. The snow gets between her toes and hurts. Apparently the groundhog didn’t see his shadow this year, so this will be over soon. Meanwhile, it’s bundle-up time.

The best part is going out on the lake, throwing balls for Lila on the ice and snow. It’s a beautiful sight, seeing her running and sliding on the lake, stirring up the snow. A little black breeze. I bought some YakTraks (slip-on cleats) for my boots and they’ve saved me from a few falls.

So glad to hear you discovered Yak Traks! They've been a life saver for me.

It's been even colder here for about a week. I'm completely sick of it. I want spring!
