Bitter Wind Chill

We are experiencing a break from the gloomy dark days and torrential rain. Unfortunately that still doesn't mean that this morning's dog walk was pleasant.

It's terribly cold and windy! It was -9 degrees Celsius with a windchill factor of -15 when I took Kona for her morning walk. (That's 15 degrees and 5 degrees Fahrenheit, for my American readers).

Chilly winds

Puddles are very common here in Chilliwack's "Coastal Rain-forest" climate. Seeing them frozen? Not so much. 

I think someone should invent indoor toilet facilities for dogs.

Oh no, it is headed this way. Stay warm.

The cold wind has now turned to a heavy dump of snow Joanne. The temperature is a bit more bearable but this community lacks sufficient snow clearing equipment so walking can be difficult if not treacherous.
