Fall

Dec
14


More snow here this week. We’ve had so much wintry weather, so early, this year that I keep feeling confused. Is it January? In fact, it’s NOT EVEN WINTER YET. Technically, winter doesn’t even begin until next week.


Me and that bird? We think that’s a little scary…..

    Here in Ottawa, Ontario, we have gotten dumped on so many times that I broke down this year and bought snow tires.
    Who knew they make such a difference??? lol

    .. 12 degrees last night here in central AL! We have already had 2 weeks of way below average temps, freezing rain, snow, and more forcasted. This has been a odd “Fall” !

    I was watching a documentary and I thought of you when I saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysOVLw30fvQ
    It’s a fascinating series, and this is #4 in a series of 12, but when I saw this, I thought BARN for CITR! Here is some pix of another West Virginian that built a cob barn: http://countryplans.com/smf/index.php?topic=9849.0 (though, he uses much more wood than necessary).

    I live in Colorado. By now, we should have 12″ or more of snow. So far, we have had .2″. It is snowing all around us but not on us!

    Tufted titmouse, it is! His feathers look slightly puffed, which forms pockets of air within their feathers making for great insulation…. so he’s warm. Mine are enjoying the backyard bird cafe in this frigid weather as well…

    The Tufted Titmice have been busy at our feeder, too. We put out black sunflower seeds. They are supposed to be high in oil therefore calories. I hope that will save them. They are so cute. We are getting the Juncos, too, and Carolina wrens are loving the suet. I can’t get much done for watching the birds and looking out windows at our beautiful winter wonderland of snow. Looks like a good four to five inches, and that is our second one like that already.

    I got up this morning and actually pondered moving to Florida. How old do you have to be to be a snowbird anyway?

    You’re right. It’s too early. Usually by now we are *wishing* for a white Christmas and lucky if we get one. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come! :help: The snow I don’t mind so much. It’s the arctic chill that gets to me.

    What a beautiful little bird!!! We are keeping our birdfeeders well stocked. It looks like we are in for a long, l o n g winter!!
    Suzanne, you are certainly a talented photographer. I love the snow from inside my house looking out. I am not a cold weather person at all, but would never leave the hills of West Virginia. It is just home!!!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
