Snow ... again

 I just took these pictures and it's still trying to snow. It's nothing big time, just kind of pretty and peaceful. Except for the breeze that kicks up and blows the white stuff from the roof. It is down right cold out there!
 I was looking through my old files last night. We haven't had anywhere near the snow or cold that we had some of the years since we moved into this house over 10 years ago. So griping is not in line.
 The grackles have flown in for breakfast. They cleaned out the feeder and left. This time of year, I would guess everybody is hungry. I don't think I would want to be a bird in February.
A little reminder for those in my area:
It's time to prune those bushes and trees that need it. The sap is down and it looks like it will stay down for the next while. We are expecting more snow and cold temperatures for the next 10 days, at the very least. Stay warm folks!

  1. Almost don't need to listen to the weather forecast here if I just keep an eye on bird feeders. When snow is coming...they clean out the feeders in a couple of hours.

    1. It was white this morning and this afternoon it kind of melted although it was still kind of snowing. It's getting white once again and the snow continues to fall.

    1. I hadn't seen any chickadees until last week. I was wondering where they were hiding! They are so sweet, aren't they?

  7. Yep, eating like a bird, if you've ever watched them, isn't a light meal, as the old saying would suggest!

  8. We've had coldish weather here in Florida...even a little patch of ice on my windshield a week or so ago...and that's quite enough for me. When the heat and humidity arrive...in less than a month I'll be BEGGING for this cold spell to return :) So happy your son can help you with your computer...the last techie thing I want is a computer which has a touch screen...after that the super smart people can do whatever they want. I have been hearing rumors about the demise of cable...when that happens I don't know how I'll connect to the internet. Probably have to go to VIOS like my son did...if I can afford it :)

    1. Our weather going up and down. (Not so much up)
      Not sure what VIOS is - I get mine from expensive wifi through Verizon. They (web sites) have sped up so much and added so many ads etc that eat up my allowance. Grr.
