This morning when I woke up I found the temperature gauge at the back door read –25Celcius. That is cold. The kind of cold that when you get in your car you think you are sitting on a pile of bricks. Poor thing protested when I tried to start it. We are not the worst though I have heard of –55Celcius in our neighbouring province of Manitoba. Glad I am not there this morning.
Over the holidays, and yes, just this morning we have been having this rare occurrence of frost quakes or Cryoseism. It sounds like a tree landing square on your roof. It actually makes the house shake. There goes another as I am typing this. The papers tell us that this is a rare event caused by a when sudden drop in temperature freezes groundwater which expands and cracks the soil resulting in a loud noise and the shaking of the ground.
This little red squirrel from the archives is probably snug up in his nest in a tree and won’t come out today.
I am off to the gym to shake my sillies out. Have a great day and keep warm.
