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

Africam and the COLD Weather

When we start setting records for the coldest day, you know that it is cold.  Yesterday we set a new low record and today is looking pretty much the same – only today we have more wind. OK – back to our regularly scheduled Africam update.  There is going to be a birding day on this… Continue reading Africam and the COLD Weather

Even Colder!

I woke up this morning to -36C and they didn’t put the windchill value – but luckily there isn’t much wind.   I would sure like to head for someplace warm and stay there until April when spring will arive here (hopefully). So, in the meantime, I open the cams at Africam and dream. This morning,… Continue reading Even Colder!
