Polar Vortex ~ Day 2

We are in day 2 of a Polar Vortex.  Simply put, 
a polar vortex is when the freezing arctic air 
decides to head south for a while and thus sends
us into a state of cold that we rarely experience.

Thankfully, we are in a warm house that is well
stocked with food.  We have a bit of cabin fever
but have watched marathons of The Tudors and
Law & Order SVU.  When we send Mia the Wonder
Dog outside she starts to limp after a few minutes.

We feel so sorry for the poor animals who have to
suffer in the bitter cold and wind.  We give them food 
and hope they can keep warm enough to survive.  The 
photo above is of one of our birds who has fluffed up 
his feathers to conserve body heat.  

Looking forward to a warm up!
