The Birds

Yesterday we had about two inches of snow fall by the end of the day. It snowed pretty well all day, and had also snowed the night before. Why the snow wasn't deeper is probably because the flakes were mostly small and powdery, although towards the end of the morning they did get bigger. I reckon it took all of the evening and night before for the first inch to fall, and the second inch fell during the afternoon.

These pictures were taken in the morning, before the first inch finished falling. That poor pigeon looked like a pom pom. I often wonder why their feet don't freeze.

And the little birds were all over the tree with the red berries. I called these pictures "The Ice Cream Bar" but I think "The Sorbet Bar" would have been more appropriate.
Today the sun is shining and some of the snow is melting, although my car and driveway still have at least an inch on them, so it should be fun driving, or should I say sliding out a bit later.
Checking to see if it was going to snow this afternoon, I found the MetCheck website which gives a two-hourly forecast. They have this handy code that you can put on your website to show the week's weather forecast in your area, so I've put it at the bottom of the page.

If you look at the forecast for here, we're expecting more snow on Thursday. Hooray!
