Brrrr… A Cold and Grey Day
It snowed last night. But the worst was yet to come. Today brought a cold, cold wind. With wind chill it was 1 degree Farenheit (-17 celsius) outside. Not my favorite kind of day! I bird watched awhile before having to suck it up and take the energizer bunny (Ryder) out for his daily chase session. Enjoy the pics!
A wee bit of snow.
A poor song sparrow poofed against the cold.
A junco huddled against the wind and waiting out the blowing snow.
A lone cardinal standing watch.
The snow was so heavy it dragged the tree branches down to the ground. Without snow, you can walk under this tree no problem.
After the worst of the windy weather, birds began showing up to eat. While the wind blew away the bulk of the snow at the base of the tree where we have feeders, there was still enough that the birds had to dig for their supper.
And then it was time for me to bundle up, grit my teeth and get out the door.
Despite the frosty temps and being frosty of face and ears with icicles hanging off his chin, Ryder, of course, enjoyed himself thoroughly. Note the snow-covered frisbee between his legs. And though the wind let up a little and the sun peaked out between the clouds, mom FROZE HER BUTT OFF! (Have I mentioned I don’t like the cold?) The things we do for our pets!
