We've been treated
to ice and snow since Sunday night and it's quite cold for our region this time of the year. Even though it was sunny when we got up it was still only 11F. Not much above that right now and the cold is supposed to stick with us for at least another week, with more ice and snow added to make it interesting. Schools have been closed since Friday and most won't open until Monday, if then.
I always keep filled bird feeders out and, now, have put suet cakes out to give my feathered friends more fuel. As a result, I have put the last cake out and just finished making more suet to cut into 4 cakes. Might even make up another batch since it's supposed to stay so cold for as long as we're told.
Bella has definitely enjoyed watching "Birdie TV" and is especially pleased that we've upgraded by adding the "suet" channel. She even submitted a requisition this morning for a wider windowsill so she could watch her programs more comfortably.
In the meantime, Woodstock has been busy with his Zamboni on the pool cover, which means I need to get outside and scrape off some of the snow and ice that are pushing it down.
Guess it's time to suit up and go outside.
