Jan 23rd

Well, I’m sad to say that our warm streak has ended.  I woke up this morning to -25C temperature with a windchill of -37C.  I generally use -35C as the base low for dog walking, so this morning is out, but hopefully it will warm up a bit by afternoon and we can walk then. … Continue reading Jan 23rd

January 21st

Tuesday was another above average temperature and this morning is the same, starting off with -8C and a forecasted high of -4C. Yesterday was a big day in U.S. history and it spilled over to many other countries, including Canada (of course).  Much of the celebrating in Canada was more about the joy at saying… Continue reading January 21st

January 19th

Well – another above normal temperature day here.  It was -8C this morning and is back to -8C tonight, but was up to -3C this afternoon.   It is wonderful to be able to walk outside without bundling up so much, and the car does not have to be plugged in at night.  I know this… Continue reading January 19th

Africam and Work at the Y

Yippee – I work up this morning to a -7C temperature.  It is almost summerlike!  I didn’t have to scrape any frost off the car windows, so it took no time at all to get to work at the Y, and I was there early.  Another wall moved from the last time I worked there… Continue reading Africam and Work at the Y

Heat Wave and more Africam

I can’t believe it!  Winnipeg in January and our temperature is actually above normal.  The forecast was close to right and now they’ve changed it to what it actually is, so it looks like they are right – LOL.  We are sitting at -8C as I write this.  The dogs and I had a nice… Continue reading Heat Wave and more Africam

Birding Day at Africam

Friday, January 16th was birding day at the Nkorho waterhole at Africam.  The morning (last night for me) started out great with Bushie looking after the cam and quickly spotting the birds in the area.  She also knows her bird calls, so we were learning all the names and calls of the ones we seldom… Continue reading Birding Day at Africam

Excitement at Africam

I’ve got to start out with today’s weather (of course).  It is now -32C with a windchill of -43C – but they are still promising above normal temperatures on Saturday and tomorrow should be much warmer as well.  I’m hoping! Now to my regularly scheduled Africam update for today. The Elephant Plains cam is down… Continue reading Excitement at Africam
