December 29th, seasonal cold -5 C/ 23 F and we got a foot of snow. The first real snowfall of the winter.

January 4th and 5th it was bitter cold -29 C/ -20 F. We call it 3 legged dog cold. Their paws get so cold after just a few minutes that they try and walk on 2 or 3 legs. (Boots have failed and really when it is that cold we can't be out long anyway).
The rest of the week more like December 29th for highs (felt balmy).
January 9th and 10th had possible record warm days (5 C/41 F) and possibly record rain (calling for 30 mm/1 inch). This is going to be followed by a flash freeze (occurring as this post goes live) of -13 C/8 F, so it is going to be dangerous skating rink today. Lady is thankful for her icers for her boots, they may not be stylish, but safety first. Then tomorrow (Tuesday) we are suppose to get 5 cm/2 inches of snow.
