Day 7 - 7th January 2016 - Ice, Frost and a Woodpecker

Stars are all out and the lake is singing this morning. Not sure if you call it singing - it's more "woop" "woop" "crack". It always makes strange noises as it's freezing.  Rather haunting. Looks like a fine day ahead and suppose to warm up. I've got some computer work to do in the next couple of days, time to back it up and clean it up, grant applications to start and research to do. Also want to get back to my own photo project. 
Temperature started off at -11 yesterday morning when we left for town but by noon had warmed up a lot. Still was pretty chilly by the time we got home though. I really dislike coming home to a cold house. Larry got the fire going and I heated up the soup - it was better the second day. Blood work is done...finally.  Not a bad day in town all in all.
The grasses along the shore are now frozen.
The ice is settling in the lake - not enough yet for skating.
Frost trims the road side.
A Female Downy Woodpecker finds breakfast.

Enjoy your day!
