Yes, when we got up this morning, it was 10 below zero. I took this photo from our front door, looking west towards Widget's House, about 7:30 a.m. There wasn't a peep coming from over there ... the dogs were totally sacked out.
On summer mornings by this time you can hear them all barking, ready to go outside. On cold winter mornings like today, with the big ceiling-mounted unit heater quietly whirring and keeping the building toasty warm, those dogs are still sound asleep when I head over at 8 a.m. to let them out.
And speaking of Halloween, here's our costume entry this year: It's blind-and-deaf Spinner, who decided she'd appear as a ... snowcone. Spinner figured if she has to wear a cone on her head, she might as well have some fun with it, right? So a snowcone it is!
