Night and Day

Problems problems. This new year is kicking off with a bang for me. We've been down in the deep freeze around here with record low temperatures. For several days the average temperatures were around -20 Fahrenheit (-29 Celsius). And right in the middle of it all, my computer's hard drive died.

Because of the deep freeze I haven't been able to go out and get any new nature pictures for a new post. So I've just been sitting here waiting for it to get above zero degrees so I can even pretend it's safe to go out for long periods.

And when my hard drive died it took a lot of my important stuff along with it. I had backups for some of it and some things are lost forever. Right now I can't do much of anything until the new hard drive I ordered gets here.

But now the temperatures are beginning to rise just above zero so I'll be able to go back out to my precious nature trails. And my hard drive should be arriving today sometime. So I'll be back up and running(walking) soon.

Until I get everything in order I thought you might enjoy a couple of these pictures I took of my front door window. As you might have guessed by now, this is clearly a frosted over window. I'm sure I didn't have to tell you that part.

The last time I took pictures like this was when I first moved here. They're not much, but they might be better than pictures of my fat old gassy dog. The dog pictures might be fine, but just feel lucky you don't have smellevision. Anyway, these are my super-fantastic pictures for today. I'll talk to you later.


  1. Lol about the dog! had everything saved on cloud which became inaccessible last year. I was devastated. Now everything is in three locations. Good luck with it!

  2. Ugh. Between the cold and the loss of the hard drive, I think I'd just hibernate. Be safe...don't go out hiking in the extreme cold. This isn't something to mess around with!

  3. ahh, sorry to hear about your computer. They sit all dependable for years, and then bam. They kick ya in the knee.

  4. Brrr! I'm glad it's getting over 0 degrees for you! I don't think my human would go out until the temperature hit, like, 35 or something! So in your part of the world, she'd be stuck inside til spring.

  5. A dead hard drive and a gassy dog? Nowhere to go but up lol
    I like the frost pictures.

  6. Luke Skywalker might be able to offer a help.
    The force is with you.
    Alice will then offer you some interesting stories for your incoming posts.

  7. I love frost pictures, but sorry about the hard drive :(
