The Bombogenesis storm of last week may have packed the headlines but this week’s weather system was a few degrees colder. The pond refroze the night the storm blew in, after having thawed for a couple of days. It didn’t take much to get a layer of ice on the surface and the storm arrived with snow. The next day hovered at 32 degrees and a little bit of snow remained in areas shaded from sunlight.
Lily is not too happy about a frozen pond, but she knows she might get a chance at the lake. Today was sunny enough that even though temps were just above freezing, it was as good a day as any to let the dog do what she loves best..jump in the lake!
I let her swim for about 5 minutes, then called her out of the frigid water, After a roll in a dry grass meadow, warm with the sun, we hiked back to the fireplace at the house. Once she was settled in, I went back to capture some sound of rocks skipping across the frozen pond. It’s just something I stumbled across and thought I’d share.
