Batten down the hatches, it's snowing again! In my last post I told you about our impending snowstorm. It started at around 10.30 a.m. this morning and it is now 12.59 p.m. according to my clock on the computer. Not so bad right now as it is not sticking to the roads. Hopefully people will be able to get home from work early before it gets really heavy. Safe trip home to all those traveling today.
Our son Brad had the day off from work so he came over yesterday and I made lunch for the three of us. It was nice chatting over our meal catching up on what we had all been doing since the last time he came over. His wife Lisa was at school working hard.
I won't be getting together with the girls this weekend, the second time we have had to cancel since the weather, so we have been phone calling and e-mailing instead.
Another friend is due to become a grandmother again any time now. The baby was due last Monday, so because of the weather she is packing up today and moving in with her daughter and son-in-law until the baby arrives. They figured there would be no way she could dig herself out of her driveway if she suddenly had to head out to the hospital over the weekend. I'm looking forward to hearing about his arrival and I hope he holds off for their sakes until the storm is over and the roads are clear.
My photos today were taken near the visitors' center at Walney Pond last Sunday. We found several bird feeders and there was a lot of activity from our feathered friends. This White-Breasted Nuthatch was the first bird I saw on a nearby tree trunk.
The Red-Bellied Woodpecker was on another.
This bird feeder was the busiest one of the lot. On it you can make out a White-throated Sparrow, male and female Cardinal, and the same Red-Bellied Woodpecker.
The Woodpecker didn't hang around for long. He would pick up his seeds and fly off into the trees to eat them, then come back and start the process all over again while the other birds continued feeding.
