Our October has been a righteous bitch and today exemplifies that notion. We’ve got high winds and cool temperatures so the wind chill is about fifteen above. In OCTOBER.
So we get the above photo. At this time of day, Joffrey is usually outside, engaging in blood sport. Not today. He went out and came right back in. The blanket he’s on now is wool and he picks up a little warmth from the sunlight. From here he can watch the birds and dream of warmer days.
He’ll get his wish by Tuesday or so but it will be a momentary reprieve. The long range forecast said we would get a milder winter but I have a feeling that is not going to happen. Our climate has changed and severity is the only constant. So we’ll keep the cats and dogs warm, batten every hatch, and ride it out.
If you thing I’m exaggerating about our unseasonable weather, here’s a photo Carjo took a few days ago of the backyard deck. This crap melted but it’s just Mother Nature reminding us that we’ve screwed up the climate and now we’ll pay. And pay and pay and pay…
