Read my posts with the following stupid accent: Canada
We're having a severe cold spell. No really, it is January cold instead of December cold, -9 to -16 cold for days on end until we get that 20cm snowstorm on Sunday. The lake iced over a couple days ago and is making those booming sounds I don't expect until after new Year's.

But today we had an errand in the middle of the province so drove 'through country', up along the river and through farmland. There must have been a ringneck pheasant population explosion this summer, because we saw lots of them. Gorgeous birds, some of them flying low over the snow. They don't even look like they should be able to fly, with their over-built long tails and heavy bodies. They look exotic and prehistoric at the same time.

(apologies to whoever this photo was taken by)
