Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, thank goodness !  I was so bummed to see that the blogs had been officially suspended.  This is welcome news for the New Year.  Thanks for the good effort, Heidi.

Thermometers purchased in Canada seem to show both Celsius and Fahrenheit scales.  Of the two which are outside our kitchen windows...one to the west and one to the north...one shows the Fahrenheit number in bigger and bolder and the other one is the opposite.

In the USA, by law, all balustrade spacing cannot be wider than 4 inches. I don't know about other countries.

 

The "hole" in part of the balustrades and the tracks in the snow, a dog owner?

Interesting about the balustrades.  It might depend upon how old the deck was.  We live in a (more than a) century farmhouse and our balustrades upstairs are wider than 4" by some.  Ed is going to replace them.

And they, chickadees, have a mega-range in North America.  And it's been that cold in a lot of North America recently...

I must say, one has to have Eagle Eyes to see dog tracks in that snow.

 

My Labradors would have demolish that snow.

I don't see any dog tracks.  That space between the decking the railing could be for pushing snow off the deck.  That's a pretty good drop in the property from the angle of the shot.

I think the maple leaves just go with her decor. Think a bit further west and north.
