how to tell it's cold without going outside

(viewed 1724 times)
Bookmark and Share
No snow, but once in a while it gets cold.
You can tell it's cold when
-you can see the hot air from chimneys
-there is frost
-the rhododendrons have curled up to conserve water
-and you can't see because you have to wear your dog-walking coat.

Wow, love the bottom picture. I'm thinking what tell tale signs there are where I live, but cant remember the last time it was cold (like too cold to wear shorts and t shirt)

thank you.There are lots of other things that tell you what the temperature is. These are things I can see before I leave home. Stay warm.

Love them all especially the patterns in the ice/frost. Now what could possibly induce you to go out on such a cold day when you could be huddled up to a lovely warm fire? :-)

sprocket, I like your hat.

A dog walking coat is essential to late night dog walks. Everyone with a dog has one. It can be anything as long as you look like a marshmallow.

Jesson, I HAVE to walk Annie. Believe me, there are some very short walks in the winter.

I love that bottom shot. Fabulous.
Growing up in New Brunswick, I used to be able to guess to within a couple of degrees how cold it was by just looking at the sky. Sad that that ability didn't follow me into adulthood.

swamprose says:

bfish, if you buy a new coat, you will find the one you lost. it always happens that way.

please be careful when crossing roads with super warm hood up, i saw someone get hit by a big 4x4 because she just looked into her hood.

Great pics btw

nige says:

like everyone else, i love your coat, but in particular, the hood. there's beauty hiding under there...i can see it.

swamprose says:

FF, you are right. I have learned to lean out and check.

nige, I plan to hide for quite a while. :)

Beautiful frost picture - as a kid, I wanted a pillow made out of snow and was very frustrated when it was explained patiently that 1) it would melt and 2) there's no snow in London anyway.

swamprose says:

rumanchu, snow pillows are such a great idea. snow sheets. snow beds. we'll find them somewhere.

jesson says:

Maybe the compromise is to have snowy white sheets with snow patterns woven in (damask). I have some sheets with feathers as the pattern and I imagine I'm sleeping on a feather bed.

paintist says:

or we will all have to check in to one of these ice hotels I bet they have snow pillows....

12th Dec 2006, 09:27

swamprose says:

the hotel in quebec city is ice, and they have their own snow cannon. think I will stick to my own very comfy bed for now. planted bulbs yesterday and am riding my bike...might plant palm trees soon. going with the flow.
