Well, what can I say. There is so much snow down and still falling and more to come. Once daylight came and still in pyjamas, I threw on my winter jacket, winter boots, hat and heavy gloves and made my way to the flatform feeder. The birds were trying to get through the heavy load of snow to get at seeds that were left there overnight. Grabbed the broom and managed to get through the snow to that feeder. Managed that, then brushed all the snow off the feeder while some of the birds were fluttering around my head anxious for breakfast. Put food out and tons of birds were coming down from the trees like leaves falling in Autumn. Started making my way back to get feed for the chickens when my pyjama bottoms fell down to my knees. I don't know what the problem is with me and my drawers falling down as some readers will remember that this has happened to me before. Well, what could I do but stand there stuck in the snow and laugh. Problem was that I couldn't get them back up as I had heavy ski doo mitts on and containers in my hands. Anyway, slowly I managed to make my way back and into the house. Luckily, this time there weren't cars going back and forth the road. And NO, no picture of me naked to the world.
Then after getting dressed we decided to start on the driveway. What a task! I finally gave up, came back in the house and made a Lemon Meringue Pie. I do things like that when I'm frustrated. Then my daughter phoned. She said she opened her back door and there was a solid wall of snow up to within about a foot from the top of the doorway. No way for her to get food out to the birds she feeds and there were loads of them out there waiting. So, she finally figured that if she went up on the third floor, opened a window and put food out on a lower roof the birds may come there. She did manage to get food out to them. She suggested I take a video of the birds at my feeders. Says I, "I don't know how." Anyway, after hanging up I got out the wonderful manual that came with the camera, the one that I can't understand a word in it about all the terrific things I'm suppose to be able to do with the camera. It seemed I was just suppose to push a button. Well, I said to myself, I'll try it. It worked, lol. Took it off the camera, now have to figure out what to do with it next.
So, we've given up doing anything about the snow this day and will probable hire the plow tomorrow to get us plowed out. It's just back and forth to the feeders now.
