Snow: softly falling, going sideways, fluffy, wet, mushy, icy, dry, cold, sparkly, fall, fort, storm, watch, warning, sleds, machines, blowers, plows, fence, shovels, skiff, heap, dump, bank, drift, angel, man, flake, boots and balls.. I am tired of them all. I am snowed out.
Lets see..the first snow last Fall/ beginning of Winter fell on October 5 2012. HELLO that was SIX months and ten days ago. I have been a trooper..I don’t like snow, I don’t like to be cold..the only nice thing I can say is that there are no snakes, ticks or mosquitoes the size of small birds.
Chance doesn’t even want to be outside in the snowy crap anymore..although that is probably because it was windy.
The little birds were feeding frantically.
Far Guy filled all the feeders in the morning and by late afternoon many of the feeders were empty.
The rafter of turkeys visited many times throughout the day..if Chance was inside..they were under the feeders. The squirrels were obnoxious as usual. They are starving to death I guess.. they are really getting bold. This was earlier in the day when it was just spitting snow.
This squirrel could be in the circus..I watch him leap from a tree about six feet away from the feeder.. on the second try he made it. As you can see the coffee can upside down on the feeder pole doesn’t help. I hate to trim the tree branch but that may be the only option. We are going to switch around some feeders and see if that makes a difference.
Oh ya, the snow stick..for all the bad guessers. It gained again.. another two inches for sure and who knows what it will show in the morning. I write late at night when it is quiet and I can download the days events.
A blog reader from North Dakota is tired of the snow there too..he says he lives in Snowrth Dakota…close neighbor to Minnesnowda..and the winter that just won’t end:(
