The aspect of weather we came to dread last year is back....polar vortex. It's -16 today once you factor in the wind chill.
After running a few errands yesterday we nipped over to the park with Kip for a bit of fresh air and exercise. He's not quite eight months old so still on a bit of a learning curve when it comes to the nuances of wintery weather. The snow in the field has a crusty layer of ice on the surface which severely hampers any attempts to run. Kip quickly figured out he could make fox-like hops into the holes made by my husband's footsteps. Then that became altogether too slow so he sat down and refused to budge. Or did he cleverly figure out a way to bypass the trudging bit while enjoying the view? Border Collies learn fast....let's hope he doesn't expect this sort of service later today.
