A touch of winter....

The weather in Minnesota
is starting to get a bit chilly....
-16 below yesterday morning....
yes,
that was without the wind chill....

I still think it is pretty....

Of winter's lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer's secret
Deep down within its heart.

~Charles G. Stater


Later -- Remington
maybe we should get our jackets out of storage
-- out!

Thanks for sending some of your extra snow this direction. It covers up those gifts I was too lazy to pick up from the yard.

Yes, definitely get out your jackets! Winter sure is pretty - especially if you are looking out the window from a nice warm house!

Your pal, Pip

Hound Girl said...

Wow winter there is really pretty. Of course here in Texas we dont get to see that so I am glad we can live through other blogs that are up north :)

Lola said...

You Minnesotans know how to have serious winter, Remington. When it gets to 16 ABOVE zero here, we're really cold. Well, the humans are. I don't mind cold, but your kind of cold might even challenge me.

lotsa licks, Lola

Morning Rem,

Have a wonderful Day Sweet Brother.

Leo, Grady and Mom.

Sandra said...

the snow is beautiful but nothing compares to your oh so precious and handsome profile shot. yikes on the temps

Stella said...

As my mother used to say, "Pretty Is as Pretty Does", and when this pretty freezes your toes off, it somehow isn't quite so pretty. So you can give me 20 degrees above and thats bearable (ask any bear!).

Kisses,
Stella, just down the road from you!

Jazzi said...

Oh MAN!! Remington, That is just downright C-O-L-D with a capital C. You better get nother warm coat on top of the original one that you have!! Keep warm buddy

Brrrrr!! That's really cold Remington!! It's pretty though! Your picture is beautiful! You might want to think about getting your jackets out now at -16 degrees!!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

rottrover said...

Beautiful pictures, Rem -- and you look dressed the the weather!! You're wearing the perfect coat!

Cooper and Lola said...

We're in MN too, and hating the weather. At least you have a lot of hair to keep ya warm.

Ginny said...

Well, there has to be a limit to how warm your lovely coat keeps you, and I'm thinking you have reached it, brrrr!!! Beautiful pictures to go with the beautiful little poem. Even the tiny bird's house is snowed over! I think I will record that poem on my church prayer line today, it is so lovely! If you call this a bit chilly, I wonder what cold is!! Keep warm, friend!

Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

Minus 16 - yikes!
Having said that, we had similar temperatures about 2 weeks ago.
Don't you think the trees look like there has been foam sprayed on them when it is like that.

Frankie Furter said...

I've been in cold temps before in Alaska, but I don't think I would want to live in that extreme cold...I must say, your winter photos are beautiful!
And of course handsome and dark Remington looks so good with all the white snow!

We love the cold, but the Momster doesn't. We have to admit that -16 is a bit brisk:) That is a great quote.

BRRRRR!!!!!!!! That is way too cold! We are thankful we don't get that chilly of temperatures! And we are thankful that your Mom and Dad take care of the outdoor animals too!

bichonpawz said...

The pictures are beautiful, but our favorite is the top one...of you...all majestic like!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug...we think it would be a good idea for even YOU to wear a coat!!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

The photos are gorgeous! But they do NOT make us want to live there...you hearty Minne-SNOW-dans are tougher stuff than fluffy little old me! Coats, hats, mittens, boots, mufflers, please, we would not want anything to get frostbitten!

Thank you for sending healing energy to my sister, Puff. She is home from her final Heartworm dose at the Vet and now we just believe and hope that in 4 months when she is retested that those icky worms will be gone! We believe that all of your wonderful prayers and purrs and woofs have helped saved her life!

Zona said...

Ummm.... yes, I think you better get those jackets out soon. That's more than "a bit chilly" if you ask me! BOL!

Wags,
Zona

Lorenza said...

Oh-oh-oh-oooooh!

I guess I'd be frozen with those temps!
Take care
Kisses and hugs
