Funny how one gets lulled into thinking that this isn't going to be too bad a winter after all. It is almost the end of January after all and it hasn't been a rough go. But....yesterday we got dumped on! Heavy snowfall warnings, blizzard warnings, etc. Preparing for the worse, we stacked a pile of wood outside the back door for easy access and I made some salads because with any harsh weather we always seem to lose the electricity. We didn't lose the power thankfully. So, this morning the snow is up to our knees and we may have to hire a plow to get the driveway cleared. Mind you, it's a very short driveway but with the problems himself has been having, it's not a good idea to shovel heavy snow.
So, a few pictures of snow we had a week or so ago. It's still dark as I write this so no shots of yesterdays mess.
There was hardly a bird to be seen yesterday as it was too rough, high winds and white out conditions. This is a picture taken last week of Grosbeaks taking shelter in one of the feeders.
And this little fellow is looking at me as if to say, "Hey, how come you haven't put more seeds in this feeder."
One of the neighbours has just arrived with his small plow and is doing the driveway. How wonderful!
