Finally Becoming Siberian Weather

After a warm and dry fall, yesterday showed signs of finally becoming Siberian weather – the temperature dropped and the wind howled.

You coming outside, Hu-Dad?

You coming outside, Hu-Dad?

The morning started out with a drizzling rain. The winds began to pick up and blew leaves out of the trees. Then the temperature fell all day long. Hu-Dad even considered building a fire in the fireplace, though he never did. We kept inviting him outside to enjoy the absolutely perfect weather, but he kept making excuses to go back inside. We can’t even figure out what is up with that.

Waiting on you, Hu-Dad.

Waiting on you, Hu-Dad.

    Love the Q look there!

    You need to start singing the Siberian classic – “It’s beginning to look a lot like Siberia…” 😛

    My fluff bottoms have become even more active with the cooler weather. More zoomies and bigger appetites (Except Bolt is still finicky). While I love to watch the fur fly, I’m with Hu Dad. Give me a cozy fireplace, toss a couple of 4 legged heaters on my feet, all’s well. We’re still waiting on Landon”s story. The dogs are curious, and wanted me to inquire……

    I get it Sibes. Keeta my Akita absolutely loved those cooler weather days. She had a particular love of that winter white stuff!

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Hmmm, sounds to me like the Herd, and the hu-Dad might be having a little difference of opinion on just what is “PERFECT WEATHER”!!!

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
