Nature Notes: A bit of this and that
Starting with last Thursday and moving through the next seven days, we've definitely had a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
Early Thursday morning looking out of my deck I saw we had a coating of pretty snow over night. However, by the time morning had begun in earnest it changed to freezing rain.
Some of the birds like grapes so I put some out for them.
This was not the kind of weather where it's easy to be a bird.
The next day is warmed up a little and most of the ice melted with a few exceptions.
It's been pretty cold although some of the days have been getting above freezing.
The female cardinal above was hanging out on my deck while the male cardinal below was having a conversation with a squirrel.
It doesn't look like we'll have a white Christmas because it will be just above freezing during the day and raining. However, the temperatures are supposed to drop Christmas night and the day after Christmas the current forecast is for snow showers. I guess I'll wait and see.
Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and for those celebrating other special days this month I hope they were/are happy ones. Click for the home of nature notes.
