More Thoughts on Extreme Weather

23 Jan

This week our weather appears to be pretty normal.  There is snow on the ground.  It’s winter coat weather.

And it’s also not so cold that I have goats in the garage.


I have to say, I’m so frustrated with the crazy swings in weather.  My fears from our stupid cold spell in December seem to be coming true.

Mr. Peacock seems to have frozen his toes.

I think it’s just one foot and I’m not sure how much he’s going to lose.  I hope he can still get around better once he doesn’t have dead toes hanging on.

This is the kind of thing that I never had to deal with until the last three winters.  I don’t want the extreme swings to be the new normal. I’m not equipped for it.  But look what happens for the end of the month. At least it’s still above zero.

It looks like it will continue for the first few days of February as well. Then it just keeps going with the ups and downs for the rest of the month.

    Teresa, I’m so sorry about your Peacock. I hope he’ll be all right. Never having had any outdoor animals that I knew well, I’ve not seen that a bird would have frozen toes. I do know that when we lived in western Oregon, where I grew up, we had to walk 1/4 mile to catch the school bus. We didn’t have warm boots, so had to wear our leather shoes. I would get mild frostbite on my toes. They would heal up, which was always a relief.
    I hope your weather will be reasonable, in the coming months.

    Hello, I do hope your Peacock will be ok. I am not a fan of winter, the super cold weather or snow. Take care, have a wonderful day!

    Oh, not Mr. Peacock. Crazy weather swings are everywhere. Plays heck with body joints, too.
