Yesterday I went looking for ‘Red” for a photo challenge – I guess I could have waited and included these pictures from this morning too.
As you probably know by now we are in the midst of Snowmageddon here in the Pacific Northwest with snow continuing to accumulate after a week. I’ve lived here my entire life and seen lots of snow over the years (and always welcomed it) but it’s pretty rare to get this much (over a foot) and keep it for such a prolonged period of time.
Most of the nearby roads are passable so we’ve not been completely snow-bound. But I’ve mostly stayed inside the last week except for keeping the hummingbirds supplied in the backyard. Every night I bring in their sugar-water and the next morning bring it out to them again. I scatter old bread and peanuts for the larger birds but haven’t seen them around much. I guess they know where to hide. I also add hot water to the bird baths to provide water for a couple of hours before it freezes over again.
This burst of winter has been fun, but enough already. The cats are going crazy in the house and Tiger’s getting the worst of it. I’ll be happy when spring arrives!
