Today Has Been Canceled

ATTENTION: Today has been canceled.  That’s correct, the entire day has been canceled and will be rescheduled for a later date. Is this real life?   My apartment complex looks like an evil villain’s

A bit nippy

Is this real life?


My apartment complex looks like an evil villain’s ice fortress

On account of a “polar vortex” (THANKS A LOT, SANTA!) today is the coldest day of my life.  The same goes for Eko, who was none too please on our morning “walk” which lasted all of ten seconds.    

Grumpy Eko trudged through the tundra to find a spot to pee and then practically dragged me back to the apartment at full tilt

And so we concede today to the penguins and the polar bears

If you need us, we’ll be right here all day

If you’re in the midwest, hope you and your pets keep warm today!


Comments for Today Has Been Canceled

  1. It’s unbelievable out there isn’t it? We’re not as bad off as you – our coldest day was a few days ago and it was SEVEN degrees. But today it’s 42 – a heatwave……we’re not celebrating it though because tonight we go back into teens and single digits and will stay that way all day. Sigh. Winter’s “blast” ??? Oh ya and then some!! Stay warm.

  2. We feel for you all over the pond suffering this incredible freeze. How right you were to cancel plans today and put them off until the valiant Eko feels it’s safe to venture back outside. Keep warm!

    Sorry guys, Fiona, Lapsi and Kimi spent the morning at the beach. We will save you some sunshine.

  4. I’m glad Eko could pee and he got no icicles :o) We had warm weather here today – it seems mother nature has still a hangover from her new years party :o)

  5. Well… It’s 60’s and sunny today. I also can easily find a pool open for business.

  6. We are right with you my friend! We are 34 miles north of detroit so we are experiencing the same thing. Poor Dakota, they hadn’t plowed in our complex this morning and he is of much smaller stature than Eko, he had to HOP through the snow like a rabbit to pee and poop. Crazy! He is also nuts, he goes out more at night during the day (go figure) and my husband was ready to have a fit last night because he decided he wanted to go out more than usual. Nutso dog!!! Keep warm!!! We are!

    We thought of Eko this morning when we headed out on our walk at -26! Mom had six pairs of PAWZ boots to put on…when it is that cold the stuff stings our paws so even us hard core dogs need shoes, Bailie also had a coat and a scarf like an old Russian woman over her head to protect her ears. It was a ten minute walk but we actually enjoyed it and no one minded wearing shoes, just Mom said it is a lot of shoes to put on to get ready for a short walk…she had to put on her own shoes too, so make that seven pairs of shoes. Stay warm!

    Steffi’s been sleeping most of the day behind me. Lucky for us (and her) we have a protected and free-of-snow area underneath our deck where she can do her business in the deep freeze. It was -50windchill this morning. Up to a whooping -35windchill currently in the Twin Cities. Hoping there’s no school again tomorrow; many districts have already called it but so far, not my school. Steffi is NOT amused by the cold!

  9. Ogee says:

    I think Eko would like you to set up some artificial turf in the bathroom until mother nature can play nice. Brrrrrr.

  10. Misaki says:

    OMD! Now that is my kinda weather!

  11. Is there room for four little piggies by that fire?!

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil

  12. Jura says:

    Wow makes me feel greatful for hanoi’s balmy low 20s at the moment!

  13. Eve says:

    I giggled when I read that EKO pulled you back into the apt. and fast. It’s cold also down south too. Juley (beagle) quickly does her business and is ready to come back in and has learned to lay in front of a floor heater. I wished we had a fireplace also. But we’ll do the best with what we have too. Stay warm and snug!

  14. I see this as good quality time together :-). UK we have heavy rain and wind what is going on arghhhhhhhh
