Our first significant snow of the season has arrived. Naturally, I've been out in it for a bit; I went grocery shopping soon after the snow started, and went down twice on the way back home - it's a tad slippery out there! I also got some shots of the action at my feeder station; Mr. and Mrs. Red came to fuel up in the midst of the storm, as did some of the ubiquitous House Sparrows, while Dark-eyed Juncos fed on the spillage underneath. Below are three of the best shots; visit the web album to see more and get a running commentary on the action.
As I'm working on this I'm sipping on real hot chocolate - Ghirardelli dark chocolate powder in hot milk with Cayenne powder sprinkled in a la Mayan practice. Later tonight I'll be dining on nice, hot Portuguese kale soup while gazing out the window at our Winter wonderland. Life is good! Heh, heh! And you know I can't resist posting this:
