I hope everyone in the path of the wild storms is faring well.

It hasn't been too bad in my neck of the woods.

The weather has been chilly, windy (but not the high winds some people have had) and rainy.

Our night temperatures in central NC are staying above freezing so we aren't getting the snow that parts of VA and WV have had.

The flicker below was feasting on pecans from my tree before getting a sip of water.

Some of the trees here haven't changed colors yet but many have.

Even though it's above freezing, the wind makes it feel cold enough to freeze.

I'm ready for winter so I don't mind the cool air.

Good to know you are not in Sandy's direct path. I like the cardinal, which I have never seen.

I'm amazed that a flicker comes to your water dish! That's fabulous!

You're lucky not to be in the normal conditions, although if someone like me will be suddenly put in your situation, it is almost like a thunderstorm, hahaha! Those photos are lovely especially the colored swaying trees.

So pretty there. The robin and the flicker look like they're having a gossip session at the water cooler in that last photo.
