a cold front will cross Southern Ontario tonight and into tomorrow. Wind chill values below -35 are expected. Mercy!
I'm just back from putting down lots of food for the ferals (all dry in this cold weather) and hoping beyond hope that they stay warm somewhere tonight. I have not seen hide nor hair of any of them for over two weeks now but that is not unusual in the winter. The food is eaten every night and tracks are there but where they stay is a mystery.
The mouse-house will be warmer tonight as the R-7 insulation was put on the garage today. The fellas did not seem fazed by the cold temperatures but hot coffee and steaming hot chili helped get them through the afternoon. They are great workers.
The feeders were filled to the brim today and I did see some chickadees venture out for some of the peanuts placed in the wooden box. I hope they have somewhere to go tonight. Poor things.
Here's one enjoying a peanut.
Just look at the ice on the bell-wreath. Brrrrr
The feeders were filled with a good mix of seed.
Tomorrow will be a day to stay in and get some house-work done. I don't own a high-quality, thick winter parka so you won't see me out there.
