Fluctuating Temperature

Currently we are enjoying a little warm spell, which is absolutely lovely.  But before this weekend, and after the huge snow storm we lived through some extreme temperatures.

The snow was very beautiful, but we really couldn't go out and enjoy it because of the cold.  Two or three days in a row we woke up to negative teens, which only warmed up to single digits during the day.  One day the high was 2 degrees.  :)  Just balmy.... 

But the peak (or should I say the low) was on a day when it was actually supposed to get up into the teens (positive teens) but that morning we saw the temperature sink down to -20! 

Last Friday the temperatures rose, and we expected them to continue to rise.  The snow was quite packable, and Josiah named the mountains rising along the drive way. 

We had Mount Sauve, and Mount Ion (after the snowstorm).

Josiah went up on the roof to clear away the heavy drifts.  He always kept a bank of snow in-between him and the edge... just in case.

Now I believe we have reached the last day of our warm weather.  The ducks have been happily swimming in the freezing cold but melted upper pool, for a day or more now, but I am afraid these daily swims will soon be ended.
