Guess if I’m glad that I don’t have to work today, I wouldn’t have made it up this small little slope that’s outside my cottage 🙂 It rained most parts of yesterday and now temperatures are below 0C (32F) again, it’s like a giant ice skating rink out there 🙂 It’s even hard to walk in the forest now even if it is better than on the roads.
I talked to the guy that took care of all the cut down trees this morning, his job is done here and now he had to move his huge machine. The problem was that the lorry that was supposed to pick it up couldn’t even come close, the road outside the village is just as bad as it is in the village 🙂 🙂 🙂
The weight of the machine and the chains on its wheels broke up the ice somewhat but not enough to make the road better. The crust on the snow cover could almost take my weight but where it broke my feet went straight down in to icy cold puddles 🙂 This is a typical winter here, the Gulf Stream makes it somewhat difficult by every now and again give us warm winds from the ocean.
Sune has rather wide feet for his size so he can walk anywhere, Nova however has rather small feet for her weig´ht so she broke through the crust where it was as thinnest. Orvar and Hector also have rather wide feet but weighs enough to also break through on thin places.
The sun is slowly going down now, it rose at 8:53 this morning and it will be gone at 3:21 this afternoon. The day is a minute or so longer than it was last week, it goes so slowly now in the beginning. We might not go on another walk today but I feel we should enjoy these last minutes of sun, it hasn’t shown that much this year.
Have a great day!
