It’s Chilly Out There!

Yesterday we had a dreary, rainy, cold cold day. Flat gray skies, the sound of the raindrops marching across the roof and pavement, the static-y noise of car tires being driven through standing water. Sometime during the night the rain changed to snow, giving us another coating of the white stuff to wake up to.

I could complain, but I can’t. Not really. I don’t live in New York anymore. where they are worried about inches upon inches of snow and blizzard conditions. We have a Level 1 snow advisory in a few of the adjacent counties, but not mine, and I’m good with that – believe me!

Instead, this is what was seen in my small area of the world:

Footprints in the snow.

Footprints of neighbors as they made their ways to their cars, scraping off the ice and brushing away the accumulated snow before making their ways – slowly! – to work this morning.


Waiting for springtime!

The birdbath is filled, but the birds probably won’t want to use it until the water is warmed up a bit more… They may need to wait quite awhile. The long-range forecast (if you can believe such things) isn’t showing temperatures above 45* for another month at least. Please remind me how much I gloomed about the cold when I am grousing about the heat in six months?





Syd is a Midwestern girl who doesn’t think the term “girl” is sexist in the least – especially after she left her 20s. She holds a huge love for history (from WWI through the end of WWII, Victorian, Regency, and Elizabethan eras), some science fiction, and likes to pass the time reading, working with photography and needlework, and writing things. Lots of things. Syd likes to dance, too, but she looks like an utter goob doing so!
