11/24/13 Walden Parke

Gray cold morning- 19 degrees with a windchill of 9 and a wind advisory for this afternoon. I decided it was time for me to have an easy short day so we just went to nearby Walden for an hours walk on the loop trail.

Besides feeling like winter it was wintry looking - Kelley was just glad to be out and thought I had stalled long enough.

I didn't think anyone would be about but we met a man on a bike with his dog and then on the old rail bed  a nice couple who gave Kelley some attention which made her happy.

Most of the water had ice on it and I thought I might get home with a dry dog but the outlet from the beaver pond had flowing water

Tomorrow is supposed to be more of the same- I can hear the wind howling as I type- but we will deal with that tomorrow.


  1. You are brave. I walked across Lowe's parking lot with the wind howling and a wind chill of about 5 degrees. Meg L

  2. Thanks, Meg- Kelley needs her daily exercise so out we go. You know, this is nothing compared to what's in store for us ahead.

  3. Keep to the woods on these windy days..brrrrr..Kelley!

    1. Hi penbayman- that seems to be the answer- weird weather continues with 50's forecast for Wed.

  4. Wow, I can't believe when it's that cold Kelley will still go in the water. Brrr!

    1. Hi Linda- it's never too cold for her- I have pictures of her in water when the temps were much colder. Today she was frustrated because all the places she gets in the water were frozen solid enough to support my weight.
