I know we shouldn't be complaining... we have had the mildest winter.
That said, it's been below 20 degrees all day, and it is dropping right now.
We have a strange snowstorm going across the metro area.... Keith and
I set out for a doctor's appointment for him from which I was to drive home.
We were almost there when I told him I didn't think I could do it... there
was an almost-white out, and streets were getting bad... and I was going to
have to negotiate two highways with a husband who had been
anesthetized. Thank heavens, he agreed... and went in to to
talk to them and let them know he would have to re-schedule.
By the time we got back to our house... there was only the barest bit of snow!
Still, the news has just shown how bad 30 miles from here, where we were.
There's a lot of action at the feeders these days... at the old house, and at the new.
I'm going to have a better way to feed here next year.
The dogs jumped out of the car and took off down into the pasture when we went out to do chores. I told them to RUN as we were only going to be there long enough to do the waters and get going again.
The little birds look so cold.
This beautiful catbird drank long and hard from the warm water in the fortex.
I figure if they are getting some water daily, it's better than none.
There was actually a little water left in the warmed water...
Look to the left side of the picture, to the left of the bluebird.
This is why there was only a little water left.
Even the starlings have to drink.
The catbird is a cutie.
