We have so far survived the arctic blast of winter weather with nothing worse than a severe case of cabin fever. Here is a picture of Julie and Dada inspecting the ice. Dada has so far refused to wear pants at any time (although she is wearing a little blanket as a sarong).

Yesterday we had a little flury of real snow that then turned to sleet and freezing rain. Today all the flyovers and overpasses are closed and we haven't even considered leaving the house.

We (by which I mean Julie) have been baking lots of things (muffins, scones, biscuits) and hanging out with our neighbors who are equally cabin feverish.

The chickens seem to be coping OK--we've put up extra wind blocks on their coop and chicken house.

The weather should warm up above freezing some time today and everything should be back to normal by tomorrow (Thursday).

I have posted a number of pictures of the various ice formations and "snow" on the ground on Flickr.
