... but she didn't know there was a hole in it!
Just before noon, huge feathery flakes started falling from the heavens even though the temperature was a couple of degrees above the freezing mark. The flakes gradually became smaller and ceased shortly before sunset. We have no snow accumulation on the sidewalks, driveways or streets, and probably only about 3/4 of an inch on the ground. However, what snow remains will still be there in the morning since it's well below freezing now. The forecast calls for continuing chill for the next few days, but the precipitation has moved on.
The birds -- cardinals, juncos, sparrows. doves and grackles -- came to the feeder areas in droves as soon as it began to snow. Is there anything prettier than a bright red cardinal sitting on a bare branch with huge snowflakes falling around him?
I did stay bundled up and, except for filling the feeders, inside all day. I played with my Kindle, successfully downloading a few free books, and managed to read about 60% of one this evening. It's fluff, but it was free, and is proving to be a relatively quick read, once I became used to the Kindle screen. I've put a few books for which one has to pay a small fee ($0.89 to $2.99) on my wish list.
That's it for this 20th day of 2011. Tomorrow is also a day.
