Default Warm and happy

Well today we are getting more snow here, got 6" last Wed, so I got the day off today. I wanted to play with my new tripod so I went down to the frog room and stared to play. After a lot of noise and bumping tank fronts. I think I scared everyone into hiding. So I tossed the tripod after a few vittatus shots.

After a few mins this guy came out to show off again.

One of the things I enjoy most about keeping of vivariums/frogs is coming in from the freezing white mess that is a Maine Winter... and going down to the frogroom where it is green and toasty.

Makes winter almost bearable. Almost.

yes!!!

My wife and I have come to the conclusion we are tropical people. From the first frost I'm wishing for spring to come so I can catch snakes and lizards and insects. I dont like the naked trees and dead flowerbeds. Evergreens suck. If I ever get the chance to move to a different TROPICAL country, I think we might.

I love coming out to my animal room and sitting there in the 75+ degree temp and among the trees and plants hanging everywhere. Like you said, it makes winter almost bearable. I want a greenhouse. :twisted:

Hey Matt - you'd never make it in Maine! :P

My wife and I have contemplated NC as a retreat from *real* winter.

It was -11 here after windchill last night. Poor frogs. Actually, poor me having to foot the heating bill.

I miss NC every winter. I was station there for 5 years and for some reason I moved back to cold, dreary Ohio. What was I thinking?!?!? :shock:

LOL... Scott
Do you mean like having lots of free time to spend on the comp. and then disappearing once a girl moves in? I know this feeling
It's fun the river just north of me, about 1.5 miles, is the line of a funny weather pattern. They get much worse weather than us during the winter,
I guess thats why the indians and settlers had the old trails on the south side.

Thanks for the compliments on the pics. I have been playing with a small aperture so a lot of the pics were blurry... have to love digital cameras.

its even funnier when you find out I lived in Vulcan, MI before I moved back to NC (Yes, I was born here!). I remember many -40 degree days, but I was younger and tougher apparently. I had even swam in lake superior which is 43 degrees year round. not now. nosirree. I'm too old I guess. Warm weather is just too beautiful with all the plant growth outside and in and all the animals moving about outside. Cold weather is just depressing.

Lake Superior 43 year round?!? Last time I looked at the lake in the winter it looked pretty well iced over to me. Could have been seeing things, but there were all those fisherman out there to compliment the illusion. Anyways, no matter when you take a dip in Superior it's chilly, I never managed to get much more than a toe in.

When I lived in the frigged north (Finland, Minnesota), I can rember being perfectly comfortable playing outside in -30 weather. The fun of snowshoeing to the bus stop, or tubing in the rivers after break-up when they were at there peak, and even swimming in Superrior on those "hot" summer days.

That is not the case these days. It has been in the 60s in the mournings lately, and I have had to bust out the long pants and sweaters just to keep from "freezing to death" on the way to class. Laugh all you want, but that is freaking cold to me now.

"but it was a different cold!!"

it was no humidity and frigid.

yeah, the lake is like 43 year round, but the top couple feet freeze sometimes when it colder'n $#!T.

I'm cold here when it gets below 50ish. The general measure of "too cold" here is "Can I ride by bike today?" If the answer is no, its too cold.
