The male just showed up in all his colored glory! It's an Evening Grosbeak and his 4 girls. Love it!

Interesting! I've always been interested in bird watching but have not yet made the time to take it up.

We're expecting a big ice storm here in ND, so I'm racing out to stock up on wine, books, and food (in that order  ;))

It's one of those amazing hobbies that all you have to do is look. Iv'e seen an amazing vatiety of birds, some I never knew excisted. Start with one feeder and one heated birdbath and put them where you usually look out the window. Then you wait! "Feed them, they will come"!

That would be winter storm Brutus I guess, at least according to the Weather Channel. What is up with them naming winter storms? I guess it's all part of their new focus on drama. I thought it was a new National Weather Service thing but they are not too happy about it: http://blogs.ajc.com/radio-tv-talk/2012/11/09/the-weather-channel-starts-naming-winter-storms-including-the-first-one-athena/

At any rate, stay safe Kathy and it's good to see you have your priorities straight!  ;D

That's interesting, Kelley; thanks for sharing the link. My ex is head of the local NWS branch here. (He came in 2nd out of 26 for the job of leading the Buffalo office; that hurt! I really wanted to go back to NYS and at that time we were stuck in rural Nevada.)

I can see the difficulties in naming winter storms, for the reasons cited in the article you shared.

No sign of ice here yet, but it is getting mighty cold!

Aww, I wish you could have. We would have practically been neighbors!

Very snowy and blowy here right now -- my favorite type of weather, as long as I don't have to drive in it  ;)

But Barry, he's very smart. He invented the Internet you know. We wouldn't all be together here if it weren't for him.  ;)

You're like me. I still have that "oh boy it's snowing" mentality until I have to get in the car. I'm okay until I have to put on the brakes. Luckily I am much closer to work now. Three minutes, two stoplights and I'm there!

It snowed a half foot here three days ago.  It's going to be 70 degrees tomorrow.


Maybe Al Gore knows what he's talking about.     ;D

Isn't it amazing how fast the weather changed? It's 32 with flurries here. I'd just as soon stay right here in my nice warm house instead of going back to work from my lunch break, especially since I have book deliveries to do on the way. Even the dogs are telling me I should stay. ;)

LOL That's a very dramatic song Barry but quite appropriate considering the looks I get when I'm preparing to leave. Dogs are good at piling on the guilt.

What a gorgeous day here! I've got the heat off and the windows open. Well, that would have happened no matter what because my apple pie bubbled over and I had smoke pouring out of the oven for a minute but it's nice that I could leave them open.

It's gorgeous here today, too, but the forecast for tomorrow is calling for sleet. Fortunately, I don't have to drive.
