It’s been harsh outside today. A RealFeel® (Oh, I can’t believe I actually used that word – it makes me shudder!) of about minus 3 – it’s the windchill factor making everything worse.
Iacs and Haakon are outside during the day and Haakon rattles the front door-knob for treats if he knows I am in. And yes, of course, I always open the door and reward his entrepreneurial spirit!
And if I hand out one treat, I end up handing out two! All is fair in this house.
Anyway, it is not warm. That’s all I know.
And there is more “weather” to come.
We are now in for almost 48 hours of strong wind plus intermittent rain but the wind direction is turning round so it should get warmer.
On a good note, though, this morning Efstur came in for his breakfast with his rug still on, which is a plus point for him. It was rough last night.
Taktur’s rug blew off over his head. Floss found a soggy heap which is now hanging up to dry. The difference in rugs is leg-straps. Taktur’s rug doesn’t have any. Oddly all my bigger and heavier rugs don’t come with them (just a fillet string that goes under the tail) so I will take them all to have leg straps sewn on. In this kind of weather (high winds) they make the difference between staying or flying off. So for tonight, Taktur is in a rain-sheet with leg straps. He still looks handsome.
Haakon has his dressing gown but it comes off at night.
Bibble just has his silly-frilly. It flies on its own!
So, bring on the next 48 hours. I am not looking forward to the struggle. Meh!
