Cold Along The Coast

I wanted to go for a walk and it read 8 F here in the yard and it didn’t feel too bad,  after what it had been like for 3 days here  well below  0 F,  with nasty winds.  The kind that feel like they are cutting right into your skin.

So we bundled in layers all except for the poor dog.  I wish she didn’t hate coats.

It was a beautiful clear day a perfect one for a drive.  Once I turned towards the coast the roads were all ours maybe they knew better.

 

Put a coat on to check these out or you will catch a CHILL

After I loaded the dog and my camera in the truck and warmed it up I went back to see if he was still OK and a pilot had placed a HUGE HEART up over the sea

it was beautiful but you will have to take my word for it unless I can find it on the web cam and show you. I was not going to run to the warm truck and go back out though now I am kicking myself  as it was so pretty.

 

 

It was THIS COLD!

I will get some photos of it if it is not as cold as today WHICH WAS NUTS!  We did have a nice walk and he did find treasure though brrrrr still trying to THAW!

 

 

 

 

CLOSED

We drove my mother to her doctor appointment last week.  I used to go to the hospital many years ago to see a doctor who practiced there so I knew right where I was going or so I thought.  Mom had been born on that property in the old wooden hospital over by Spot Pond.

Our day started early we woke at 5:00 and left NH at 6:00 to miss rush hour traffic.  We had a wonderful ride on a very cold day.  Mom could have driven there but being 77 she worried about the morning traffic as they had given her a 9:00AM appointment for her stress test, I knew she did not need the stress of that bumper to bumper traffic on top of her test.

We took our truck as it was already warm inside this day in New England saw temps. below zero and with gusty winds it felt even colder.

After I made sure mom was all checked in and was all set,  I made my way back to the truck.  I grabbed my gloves and grabbed JT and her leash,  the camera too thinking if I walked fast and kicked a stick we could do the loop around the old hospital, you see the place we had all thought we were going was CLOSED, boarded up with construction equipment throughout the beautiful property.   As we walked the old paved walkway close to the buildings it really was tolerable weather wise but when we came around the corner and the winds welcomed us I knew I had to turn around for not only me but JT.  Last thing I need is frostbite on my nose!

Here are a few photos I took,  last week of a beautiful but rather frigid New England day in Massachusetts.

A very cold New Hampshire afternoon with the river doing her best to stay open and flowing but sadly it was loosing its battle with old man winter.

Now yesterday as the furnace cranked out the heat to keep us warm it did nothing to stop our bathroom pipes from freezing, have I told you I HATE WINTER!

I boiled tea kettle after tea kettle of water and poured down the drains in sink and tub.  Who ever designed this home was nuts putting the bathroom on an outside wall!  Then again when this camp was built they used and outhouse.   Yes that was my world yesterday, me doing all I could from inside and him outside in below  0 F,  with and extension cord and a hairdryer warming a vent pipe.  I tried to remind him that the hot water I had been doing all day was working and that my hair dryer was NOT FOR OUTSIDE USE,  in SNOW!   I swear he will make me get my first Gray hairs!

 

 

I know I added the photos to the post but others never showed up!

Water and Ice………… Ducks too!

Freezing to brush, small trees and others moving with the flow of the river.

I Love the color combo on this home.  In New England we have areas

where only colors from the Colonial Days can be used on homes  in the

Historical Districts.

Exeter NH
The town I live in used to be a part of this town.
So much history in this area of NH. This is the river that flows through it.
