Good morning everyone! It is another nice day here, not exactly warm, but still it is not so bad. And we did not get all the snow they had forecast for us yesterday. I don’t know what happened to it, but it obviously went somewhere else, which is fine too. Though perhaps the people in line with the storm did not think so. But we do like to share with others, especially when it comes to snow and cold weather! Just a little fun there.
Well, we are basically past the half way point in winter, or at the half way point, depending on when spring actually arrives. By that I mean when the snow is actually gone. Which I am hoping will be a quick thaw this year. Whenever the snow melts slowly it means there is terrible icy conditions around for about a month. And that is dangerous.
If the snow melts quickly then we get over that icy part quickly, which is very nice. But, whatever comes will come and eventually we are into the beginning of real spring weather. But right now that is a long way off. We are supposed to get some nice weather this week though, even getting up into the low 30sF possibly. But that will only be one day.
However, it will mean some nice weather for walking and I will try to take advantage of that with walks to the river. And hopefully spending some time out here with my birds each day. I am still trying to get a picture of a pine grosbeak on my hand, or an evening grosbeak. Both have been on my hand, but I did not have my camera. I was hoping they would get used to the idea of sitting on my hand first. But perhaps this week I will try with the camera and see if I can attract them.
The days are getting noticeably longer now. I have to get out earlier in the morning to get the feeders stocked with seeds before the birds arrive. And the birds stay later in the afternoon now as well. No birds have arrived yet though, I managed to beat them this morning. It is going to be a wonderful day. I hope you all have a sunny Sunday and God bless!
