2/14/16 Essex Woods

We have had a couple of very cold days. Yesterday we just did a short walk around the neighborhood. This morning was colder still - minus 9 when we got up with wind chills to  minus 19 and a couple of inches of new snow. I decided since we didn't hike yesterday that we would try today - when it had warmed up to two. Kelley didn't want to get in the car so it was another short walk in the hood. Back home she wanted to stay out - and she did.

Later she came inside but before long wanted out again and this time went to the car. OK - short drive to Essex Woods - 2 degrees and wind chills to minus 17.

Even though it was one o'clock, no one had yet been on the initial trail . Firm under the little bit of new snow so good walking.

I only took a couple more pictures. It was a pretty day.

We did a short hike - one other person had been on the old rail bed but we saw no one - and Kelley seemed to enjoy it. When we got home she stayed in the car- as she usually does.


  1. Brrr! Kelley must have a very thick coat of fur. Hope things warm up for you soon.

    1. Hi Linda - Cold does not seem to affect her - the weird weather continues - to day to go to 50 and rain
