We went to the hospital yesterday so I could get the necessary tests done. As the car is at the garage, a friend was kind enough to drive us there. The highway was pretty good considering the few snow falls we've had lately. I got the tests all over pretty quickly and we were back home again in time for lunch.
The weather report on the news last night said we could get 30 cm. and maybe even 40cm. tonight but then again they said it might just veer off and miss us. If indeed it does hit, it will be the heaviest snowfall of the season. This morning is overcast and quiet, feels like the calm before the storm.
I was in the driveway a few early evenings ago when about half a dozen Cedar Waxwings landed on the vines going over the fence eating the berries. I couldn't believe it and they were only a few feet away acting as if I wasn't there at all. Didn't get a picture as I figured by the time I got in the house for the camera they would be gone. They are such beautiful birds. Then yesterday afternoon I saw the hawk once again fly up into a tree. I should have known something was up as there were no other birds about and it was dead silent outside. Again, went for the camera and quietly walked up to my knees in snow over to the woods but no sign of him.
A few pictures of the snow we already have.
