Well, it wasn't much snow compared to what we had in Alaska the past few years, but it was impressive for "down south"! We got about 6 inches of snow on top of about 6 hours of freezing rain. Makes for really treacherous roads so we stayed in the condo all day. Good thing we had full charges on our cell phones, Kindles, and toothbrushes. We were ready for a couple of days if necessary with groceries, water and logs for the fireplace.
But, today the sun came out and thawed the roads a bit so we got to take a quick trip over to the house to make sure everything was okay over there. It is of course. Picked up the mail and a bit of birdseed to bring back for the hungry birds at the condo. We have had some birds with voracious appetites the last 2 days. And such a variety too. I've really been enjoying watching them. We had a Pileated Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, Red Breasted Woodpecker, Yellow Bellied Sapsucker, Blue Jay, Carolina Wren, Junco, Cardinal, Titmouse and Purple Finch all today!
Right now I need to close this out and head on up to the clubhouse for our weekly night of playing Hand & Foot, a card game we learned here at Pointe Royale. Hope everyone else has weathered this storm as well as we have. *S*
