Today has been interesting!!! We woke up at 4:45 this morning to the sound of ice crystals hitting the roof and windows. After laying there for about 5 minutes, Michael had the wonderful idea that we should go ahead and get up and get our showers in case we lost electricity. So, our day started early.
Throughout the day there has been a steady fall of sleet with an accumulation at 8:00 pm of over 3 inches of ICE!!!
We realized early this morning that the birds were fighting for a place on the bird feeder so Michael braved the elements and put out a large lid full of seeds…..
By 1:00pm, they had finished the seeds and patiently waited for him to replenish them!!! It has been fun to watch them throughout the day!
Fortunately, we have NOT lost our electricity but the candles are out, along with backpacking head lamps, so we are prepared if things go dark…..
And, how can I say this diplomatically……
ENOUGH ALREADY……BRING ON SPRING!!!!!
