A long snowy, blustery day - better being indoors

It was a light snow and it fell all day and all night. Once the wind gusts began it was treacherous. The cars actually slowed down on slippery roads. Thankfully, it was a Sunday and fewer people were required to make their way into work.

I shoveled the walk, eyeing the newly fallen snow and wondering the purpose of it all. Rather than hauling out the snowblower, I decided to wait to clear the drive. The driveway, which was nearly bare, now wrapped in a blanket of snow. The shoulders are much deeper with snow drifts. Perhaps, I might as well wait until tomorrow to clear it off!

I redressed Frosty and Bear, having sewn up a red Valentine's Day cape for Bear. It is bracing weather. Photos will come. Perhaps when the sun comes out for a better, brighter photo.

We begin another week. We both fight colds. Gotta be healthy.
Love that feeder
People slowly make their way into work, headlights flicker between the trees. Drive carefully.
An American sparrow smiles for me
Bright spot on a dark, snowy day!

"You can't catch me!"
It ignored her and ate away.

The three of them bemoan the cold, blowing snow!

The weather has been lovely for staying indoors. Except that I sometimes get cabin fever and need to go outdoors.
