I woke up Friday morning and it was snowing. It didn't amount to much but still fun to see the second touch of snow in one week.
I understand why people who live places that have to deal with massive amounts of snow in the winter would get tired of it, but I love snow. We occasionally get significant snow but in recent years we've only had a few light ground covers.
I'm ready for a winter with some nice deep snow to photograph and play in. I know I need to be careful what I wish for. The problem with our occasional deep snow is the city isn't equipped to deal with it and it takes forever to clear the roads.
It's also a lot harder for the birds to survive in bad weather. If you look at the deck shot in the second photo, you may note the holes in the deck wall. I mentioned them a few weeks ago in the ruin(ed) photohunt theme. I'm noticing the birds seeking shelter in the wall as the weather gets colder. Winter is the best time to replace the deck wall before the birds begin nesting in there again during the spring. The problem though is since they are seeking shelter for the winter in the wall, I also hate to disrupt that place of warmth.If I replace the deck wall, the birds will still have the overgrown bushes for warmth as well as the nesting boxes. Still I hate to think what I'll find inside the wall. Oh well, it's one more expense I really don't need so I suspect another year will go by with the deck wall serving as shelter for the birds.
