This morning we had a heat wave for a few minutes before the cold front came in. So Luna and I decided it was time to get out into the neighborhood and test out the new fallen snow. I guess we had 4".
She loves to be the first dog on the block to break snow. There wasn't another critter track in the driveway before we went out.
When we got back to the house I made a hot cup of tea and did a bit of bird watching. We had quite the influx of field birds. Brown headed Cowbirds and a few Starling joined the masses of House Sparrows at the feeders. They have a game they play. First you see them...
Now you don't. Ever vigilant for the Cooper's Hawk that patrols the garden. One can't blame them for being so skittish.
The temperature dropped all afternoon. Quickly getting into the twenties and upper teens. This will be the high tomorrow what with the wind whipping through here.
I am glad the snow is insulating the garden. I hope you are all warm and safe inside.
