Alliteration aside, it was very cold this morning — only about 15 degrees (-9.44 Celsius). I couldn’t find Zoey’s booties, so I ventured out without them. I can always tell if it’s too cold for her feet. She lifts one foot off the snow, then sets it down and lifts another. But she didn’t have any trouble. Another dog walker I spoke to said the same thing of his dog. We both agreed that there is some kind of dividing line where it’s too cold for their feet, and it appears to be lower than 15 degrees.
The park was beautiful. Here are my pictures from today.
I walked down along the creek again to check it’s progress in freezing solid. A week ago I shared a post with pictures from the same area and the weather was considederably warmer then ranging from a bit below to a bit above freezing, and the creek was flowing rapidly, cutting a dark swath through the marsh.
But now it is in the process of freezing solidid.
As y can see the creek has turned a milky white with ice.
In some places you can still see it running under a crust of ice, and other places the ice has barely covered the water.
I was trying to capture the beauty of the forming ice, but photography just doesn’t quite capture it.
Once again, it was very difficult to stop taking pictures! Although, I did have to remove my gloves each time, as they are thick winter gloves and you can’t operate anything electronic or mechanical with them on!
There was a lot of activity at the park. Minn3966848)
