Dropping [Nov. 11th, 2010|11:48 pm]
It's gotten very cold here, now that the rain is over and the sky is clear, but it's still very damp. My poor feral kitties are going to have an unpleasant night. It probably won't get much below 40 degrees, but the humidity will make it feel even colder. This evening, by the light of the crescent moon I could see my breath condense in the chilled air. Maybe later there will be fog and I'll hear dew dripping from the trees. That would be nice. But I'll still worry about the cats.

how cold does it get there in winter? they've weathered winter before, so i guess they have hidey holes around the neighborhood, aside from your generosity and garage and so on?

On average winters are not too bad at this elevation (the lowest temperatures I remember were in the teens) but there can be strings of days in the thirties and nights in the twenties. Last winter— the only full winter Alger and Farah have experienced, since they were probably born the previous March— was milder than average. There were only a couple of snow storms, and the majority of nights got no lower than the mid-forties.

I'm not sure where the feral cats hide out. Farah spent summer nights mostly on my roof. I heard her running around up there. Alger might be hanging out in a shed in a nearby yard. He always appears from that direction when he comes to eat. They can't get into my garage at night because I keep it closed once Portia comes home from her evening wanderings, so she won't escape when she goes out there. The garage is pretty much hers year-round. She likes to hang out in the rafters.
