Here's how Mary described the temperature this morning when she opened the door to let us dash outside.
"BE CAREFUL OUT THERE" she said "ITS COLDER THAN A WITCH'S TIT IN A BRASS BRASSIERE." We weren't sure if she even knew a witch, but we couldn't disagree that it was bitterly cold at minus fifteen with a wind chill factor making it seem like minus twenty-one.
Needless to say, none of us wanted to dawdle around so we were back inside as soon as we took care of our business. Throughout the day, we did spend short periods of time outside when newcomers arrived, like Max and Maggey and Marley but that warm sunroom was very appealing.
Felim and Jora were picked up by their human and our regular Friday day-visitors, Baxter, Nala and Shelby arrived along with Kali.
What made today special was the arrival of that little dynamo, Murphy, the Sheltie. He was so excited to be here Stephanie had a hard time getting him to come in the house, in spite of the cold. We took turns playing chase with him as the sun was setting and eventually when it got too dark, he agreed to come in the house.
Tonight, we're hoping that the cold will back off a bit tomorrow and we can get out with Murphy and show him how we play.
