Iced In

I know that many around the country are dealing with snow and ice this week, and we are no exception. It started for us Tuesday morning, when we had rain, which turned to freezing rain and snow – mostly ice. The temperatures have not been above freezing since then and so the ice remains. Many businesses have been shut down all week, and so far, all of our “out of the house” activities have been cancelled too. We have been keeping busy with school (a little), games, movies, and cleaning projects. Jeff worked from home the first two days, but crept in to work today. We are expecting a little more snow tomorrow, but the temperatures should go above freezing finally on Saturday, so there is an end in sight!

I filled the bird feeders on Monday, and have enjoyed watching the many little visitors all week – sometimes around 30 at a time. I have seen many sparrows, cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, and juncos.

Hope you are staying warm where you are this week!
