Good morning. Gosh, it's cold this morning. Currently it is 9F degrees and the sun is shining. The weather man says that it will get up to around 32F degrees sometime today. Then we have more snow coming during the night, and rain and freezing rain for tomorrow. Well now, isn't that nice!
I'm watching the Weather Channel, and they are showing all the side streets in Boston, and all the cars still buried in snow. The problem now is that all that snow has to be carted away, but to where? There's no where to throw the snow when you shovel out all these vehicles, so it will be a while before some of the cars make it out of their icy spots.
I have a solution, but they are not asking me. (What else is new? lol.) They could start at one end of a street with a plow, a back hoe and a couple of dump trucks, and dig out one car at a time and put the snow into the dump truck. After a while the whole street would be cleared and all the cars could go back to their parking spots. The snow in the dump trucks could be carted away and dumped into the ocean. (or somewhere suitable)
We have two more nasty winter spells coming our way for tonight and tomorrow, and then again for Sunday into Monday. It looks like there is even more snow coming mid week. I, for one, will be ever so glad to see Spring coming with her warm sun and green leaves. Just 51 more days folks!
I did not do a "word" photo for today but I have more pix of our birdies. These first two photos show a little finch (I think it is a finch) enjoying lunch at the plate on top of the snow, and the next photo shows another little one enjoying his lunch under my car.
These next two photos feature a tiny wren. In the first shot, he is pecking at a snow covered branch, and in the second photo, he is perched on one of my windshield wipers checking out the food situation. (at least that what I think he is doing)
Yesterday afternoon, Joe cleared off my car, and then cleared all the heavy snow off the porch roof. At least now I won't be worrying about the roof when the freezing rain and snow comes tomorrow. I think we'll go food shopping this afternoon when Joe gets home from work so that I don't have to go out tomorrow.
I'm hoping to go back to Market Basket to do our food shopping because I found a brand of doggie food there that Pogo will eat. It's the Market Basket brand of "gourmet dinners" . I bought some last week to try, and every day Pogo eats at least half of it to all of it for his breakfast. Woo Hoo!!!
I have some fun photos that Dee Dee sent to me, but I'll save them for tomorrow. Right now, my tummy is telling me that it wants a bit of food. So, till tomorrow Y'all be warm and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
