Waiting for me to come out in the cold...

A pair of Eastern Grey Squirrels

This pair of Eastern Grey Squirrels were waiting for the corn to be replenished. And I was waiting to see if Dad was going to show up and go feed everyone today. But he showed up with Carilyn driving, which means he got his mail, checked his phone messages, and was back out the door, so I got the corn ready and went out to feed. It wasn't still spitting snow (thankfully) but it was definitely chilly (32 F/0 C) and a bit windy...both cats have spent most of the day in since they are not big chilly wind lovers. But now everyone is fed, and I can shut the cold out for the day. Or until Scar thinks he wants out again. *photo by me per usual

I don't think many people actually enjoy the freezing weather. At least your chores are done, so you can stay inside in the warmth.

@myklj999 I doubt it, Given there is such a thing as an indoor rink. It's risky to skate on a frozen-over lake or pound, anyway. Hard to tell how thick or thin the ice could be.

@kaylachan That's why you have a hatchet. Ice fishermen love it. Ain't no such crittter as an ice rink within 100 miles of me.

We're getting constant winds in Michigan, not unusual for this time of year. I saw a fishing boat out yesterday and thought to myself, 'What idjits!' The waves were tossing that small boat all over, he was struggling to get back in!

Aren’t they sweet looking? And that one either has a VERY cold nose, or dogs aren’t the only animals that greet each other with a butt sniff.

Stay warm and cozy indoors. Tell Scar that, too.

That is such a cute photo they look like they are backed up with each other maybe they were cold and the food gives them fuel to warm up, Now why would Scar want to go out in the cold I though cats wanted to curl up somewhere warm, It is even 44 degrees here in Florida and I have a down blanket,

I had to go out this morning, I needed a double coffee coming back, it is chilly today. Cats dislike cold weather, they are smart!
