We got a lot of snow yesterday - our biggest snowfall this season. My attitude towards the snow appears to be a bit of an anomaly, as I enjoy being outside in the fluffy white stuff. Even the shovelling is not a dreaded chore as these scoops are used as much for play as for work. With the help of a willing partner, they are transformed into a PTS ("personal transport sleigh"). Sitting in the scoop with your legs folded in, you can travel easily and quickly over tops of snowbanks, rickshaw style.
The feeders were all empty this morning as the snow brought out many hungry birds, including one absolutely huge woodpecker whom we hadn't met before. We are still hopeful the cardinals will make an appearance before long.
