Improved Weather; Projects Begin

After our icy cold snap, everyone is excited about the above-freezing temperatures and sunshine. Instead of snuggling indoors, everyone is back to frolicking outside like they normally do except for the Soft Coated Wheatons. They never stopped frolicking.

Although we still offered their usual exercise yard times, there was not as much enthusiasm to run and play, outside of the first ten minutes the exercise yard was opened. The preference seemed to be chewey treats and toys. I imagine it is because they could stay inside and still be occupied.

After checking the monthly weather forecast, we are ready to start on the playscapes for the exercise yards. We are supposed to stay above freezing day and night for the rest of the month of February (knock on wood). So it is a great time to take advantage of the sunshine and get started on some Spring projects.

Hopefully we do not lose them in a tornado in March, but you can't factor tornado destruction into project decisions. Otherwise we would not be able to get started until Summer was already here. We have swimming lessons to focus on by then.
