Day after storm…well, almost...


It's 9:10 a.m. It's up to -1 degree. And still snowing a bit. It should all be over with very soon….or so the local weather person claims.          
              Wind chills….well….see for yourself.



OK, so I lied about the -1 degree. It's actually zero now.

(Note the "feels like -21º…")  

Here are a couple of my fav birds roosting outside my kitchen window. Mourning doves. Love 'em.

They have a really hard time feeding off the bird feeders, so they ground feed under the bird feeders, but with the snow it was so hard for them. Mr. Downeastdoingstuff (aka Birdman) went out and put a tray of seeds on the ground, but the snow did quick work of it.

Window in family room. That red sliver is our garage.

Door was shut all night. This is how much snow the wind drove through the crack into our entrance hall. 

Help.

Hi Elenka...So glad you're back hitting those keys. I really missed you.
We were 17 below, when I got up. The birds are calling my name, but it has to warm up before I will venture out.
Love those doves....we have a pair that visit and nest here. They sit on the deck rail and wait for the other birds to feed.Sometimes I want them to be more aggressive and go for it...but that's not their nature.
Hope you have a warm day inside.

Hi There, Haven't heard from you or Birdman in a long time. How are you??? Dumb question after the weather you are having, huh????? Gee---I'm complaining about our weather.. Guess I need to quit complaining and be thankful I'm down here where it was only 5 degrees this morning…. Goodness--where is spring?????

Take care an try to stay warm.

Thanks for stopping by my (chilly) blog today! In Minnesota the governor cancelled schools due to extreme temps. And Burbank Branch of PPL was closed today due to their heating system. I love the photo of the birds & your home, though that snow under the door is a little scary...
