Almost too cold.
I almost had to start my blog with “The first frost” today. It suddenly got so cold yesterday evening that I had to start a couple of radiators to keep the cottage warm. Well warm is a bit too much to say 🙂 but at least not chilling cold. I closed all windows just to be sure the heat from the radiators would stay indoors. If it is around or colder than 6 C (42,8 F) at 10 pm we will have frost the next morning and we only had 5 C (41 F).
But clouds came in sometime during the night so it only fell to 2,5 C (36,5 F) . I had turned of the radiators when I went to bed so I woke up to a chilling cold cottage this morning. Nova woke me up at 4 am for some reason and when I woke up all the others did too 🙂 Even though I rather quickly jumped back in to bed after all dogs and cats had walked in again after doing their business I still felt chilly inside and just couldn’t fall asleep again.
Our first night with frost usually comes late in the first week of September so it’s close anyway but I really don’t want it any earlier than usual, especially since we never got any real summer here this year. This year I need a long and reasonable warm autumn to sort of make up for that lousy summer 🙂 It would be nice if we didn’t get any winter at all as well 🙂 🙂 🙂
I started the radiators again when I came home since it only reached 14,5 C (58,1 F) today. It isn’t especially cold indoors but the humidity makes it feel nasty here and the radiators will at least dry up the air so it feels nicer again. Hector and Orvar loves this, finally we have temperatures they think is nice 🙂 They would without a doubt love to sleep in the snow all winter if they were allowed to 🙂
It is time to make something to eat and another cup of coffee. I do hope we all could sleep a bit longer tomorrow, it would be so nice to at least sleep until the alarm clock starts 🙂
Have a great day!
