Batten down the hatches - winter has arrived - Nor'easter on the way today. High winds and lots of snow forecast for this afternoon and night. Get ready for power outages. Hoping Friday morning I can get back out with the snowshoes again! I'm going to require a nap this afternoon I'm sure, it's been one of those way to early mornings for me - 3:30am. I knew that's what would happen after having 3 good sleeps in a row. The birds were feeding greedily yesterday, the large flock of Evening Grosbeaks, Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Chickadees, Goldfinches, a few Red Breasted Nuthatches and a pair of Song Sparrows. Always a sign that bad weather is on it's way. I've not seen the Sharp Shinned Hawk for quite a while, he must be happier these days at Lois' feeders. I think the Library is cleared out except for some dusting, Larry continued with molding in the bathroom last evening.
I get more enjoyment from the Christmas tree since we've had it out by the feeders than I did in the house. The Evening Grosbeaks and smaller birds love finding the seeds we've tossed in it.

Enjoy your day!
