    Don’t think I’ve ever been the first to comment! How is the weather in the US? We’ve had lots of snow in the UK this week; we have about four inches here in Derby, which is a lot for this area. It’s been below freezing since about last Wednesday, so winter has truly arrived. The beags love it though, they’ve been running around in it, digging in it, rolling in it and all together having a really good time!

    Well, here in the San Francisco Bay Area it’s finally warming up after a cold spell. There was one night with an overnight low of 26F and snow on all the hills around. I think it’s supposed to be around 62F and sunny today: beagle weather!

  3. Snow here last night in New Jersey and it is only about 21 degrees- brrrrrrr. Buddy loves romping around in the snow – The whole back yard is full of his tracks- but Hiss Holly- hates it.She tries to only step where Buddy has already packed down the snow.

    Very cold in the midwest. Eddy is in bed, with his nose tucked under his tail.

      Yup, wind chills way below zero. Supposed to warm up later in the week. That’s how it’s been going: roller coaster temps.

    Presently 55 here in Houston, it has been cold here lately but is warming up to near 70 today. I would LOVE to see our Beagles in the snow~

    Below zero temps here in Wisconsin. As I was driving to work this morning, the temp gauge on my car showed -3 degrees F!

    Cody and Henry go outside for 2 to 3 minutes, then come onto the enclosed sun porch asking to be let back in!

    Here at Princeton University it’s currently 17 degrees. On my way to the pool this morning I saw a male undergrad strutting about with his hockey shirt on instead of a coat. He wasn’t wearing flip-flops, so I guess that’s a plus.

  8. Sam and Sweetums' Mom said

    In Indiana there was a minus 11 chill factor this morning. We can tell how cold it is by the cats occulding the vent in the bathroom, laying on the bathroom floor and how many cats and dogs are on the bed. Last night it was a 2 dog and 1 cat night!

    Here on the California Central coast its a balmy 61 at 10:20 am, expected high of 74 today. Anything below 30 and the local news sends out freeze warnings… Silly Californians!
    What my hubby and I find utterly stupid are the people who cover their plants at night but don’t bother to uncover them during the day — sure fire way to kill the plants…

  10. You don’t want to know! It got down to 55 degrees two nights ago and everyone flipped out and complained. But they still won’t put socks or shoes on.

    I’ve never heard of anyone covering their plants at night! Must be Southern California ha ha

      We see a lot of flip flops here also…
      If you cover frost sensitive plants at night (outside plants 🙂 ) during temps 29 or so and lower, it prevents them from the killing frost (I had a tomato plant that lived from summer of 2011 through last winter and got a lot of fruit this summer and fall; it got hit last week or the week before by the low night temps– most likely dead now 😦 )
      I’m assuming you were serious about the question 🙂

      • Yes, serious question. I learn a lot from this web site. Like Siding. Never heard of it before. and Delaware. knew it was a state, but where? (it’s so tiny I can barely see it on the map)

      • harperlea said

        Lol re Delaware ….
        I hit post twice so unfortunately I repeated myself 🙂

        Farmers use smudge pots (banned in some areas I think), water, and fans to keep their crops from freezing… Think California wine grapes 🙂

        I’ll have to post about Bartles and his very own pairs of shoes on Thursday … Funny story

    FREEZING in Connecticut. I’m not even going to give the dogs their usual long walk. They aren’t complaining though–they are grateful to get in extra naps.

    • Susan in DE said

      Ditto for Delaware, pretty darned cold. My car said it was 18F when I left for work, but it’s also windy, so it’s very unpleasant. While Josie has the dog door, she still needs to be encouraged to go out, so I have to go with her in the am and after work. We will not be taking any long walks in the neighborhood for a while, I think … I’m ready, though … I have my new Columbia ski jacket, a wonderfully warm fuzzy earflap hat from LL Bean (Rob calls it my “Gomer Hat” … fashion be damned, it’s cold!), and I finally found a pair of gloves that are secure for gripping the handle of the Flexi-Lead, and are fitted enough where I can pick up poo with the plastic bag without removing them … Sure enough, fleece horseback riding gloves.

      Josie’s hair on her abdomen has not yet completely grown back from when it was shaved for the untrasound she had in early July, so I worry about that being a bit cold. It’s not in an area that would be covered by a doggie sweater or blanket, so I think maybe she needs some bib overalls. :-> (Although she hates wearing all doggie clothing, so that would be the worst!).

  13. Spunky's Mom said

    It’s 10 right now in Michigan – and I think that might be the high for the day…….my husband tried to walk Spunky yesterday evening and he said she tried to run the whole way home. Not sure how much worse it is with the wind chill at the moment, but I do know it’s just too cold for walks!

  14. Amy~Cobalt & Onyx's Mom said

    It is so cold here in Ohio that Cobalt happily comes in through the doggie door without a treat! I found him tonight, in a nest- on top of two dog beds and under 5 blankets. (Single digit temps in the am, our high today was 17 but wind chill was much colder)
