Winter Sky

This is the frozen lake photo I posted yesterday.  The sky appears as cold as the lake.

This is our sky this morning, as the arctic blast descended on us.  It doesn't really come through on the photo, but it looked like a giant, frozen meteor streaking across the sky.

At four this morning, I was awakened by the sound of the wind howling out there.  Yesterday it was 40 degrees; tonight it's going down to minus 15.  I am trying to remain sane here.

Trying to stay sane here too Judy in challenging weather conditions directly opposed to yours - 43 C degree heat today in Adelaide (109 degrees F) - parts of the state suffering in 113 degree heat. Back to the high 30C's tomorrow, and then we are in for over 40C temps again. All a bit much for both of us. I like your photos - you must have been cold taking them!

Oh Pam, I am so sorry to hear about the extreme heat you are experiencing. I know I've been complaining about the cold, but I actually think heat extremes are worse. Our trees and other plants usually come back after winter, but heat can kill them. It seems easier to deal with the cold than it does with the heat. I hope it lets up for you soon. (And I will stop complaining about the cold so much.)
Thanks for liking my pictures, but I didn't get cold. The first one is from Google and the other two I just took through my window!
