Accidental Capture

birds in snow

All I was doing was taking a quick shot of why I was about to go out and feed the birds, and then this happened. Look carefully!

Basically what I did today was try to keep the birds fed, can you imagine? And watch the news—I found a couple sites where I can stream MSNBC for free on my laptop or my phone, of course, which means I can put an itty-bitty teevee on the counter while I eat my lunch. Just ask me anything.

It started snowing at 3:00 a.m., I’m told, and went on for twelve more hours. We ended up with about a foot on level ground, if you can find any, and quite a bit more on the lee side of the hills and such. It’s a serious snow. I’ll be shoveling tomorrow to make a path to the vehicles and try to get out with the Dakota.

    Wow! If I were a kid, I’d love these snow piles. I’d throw myself into one! Then make a snowman with friends and dress him with a cap, and something thick around his neck.
    But today? I sit in my warm home and look at the beauty of Mother Nature outside. I’m grateful for roof over my head.
