Yes, I know it has been a while. The reason is simple: the weather has been just too cold. There were days in this break, where the temperature was in the high -30s and with windchill, hit -50ºC. Dry cold or not, that is too damn cold for humans or dogs. So we just stayed inside, or at best, made up somewhere to go in the car. That accomplished breaking cabin fever, and keeping the car moving at least once a day.
I guess I know my limit now, and it seems it is 50.
