Description: Went on a patrol this morning with Private Ainsley McKenna. Seen here, you can tell we went out equipped in our Winter Gear, as the actual temperature was 1 degree Fahrenheit (-17 degrees Celsius), with a windchill approaching negative 10. Ainsley was wearing her full dress Battle Scottie Uniform, as supplied by Scottie Logistics – Southern Division (B. Murray- Australia). I have lost far much to weight to wear my dress uniform from Ms. Murray, so I had to wear just a conventional sweater. Even then, it just hanged off me. Normally, as you know, I mock Scotties that wear their sweaters when it is like 40 degrees, but once we approach zero, we appreciate the warmer gear.
Enemy Encounters: None. Very quiet. We did get barked at by the Yorkies from their position in the front window of the next door house, but they are not hostile. Just stoopid.
Unless an emergency arises, my next communication will be in 2015.
