There was a massive flock of about 200 Canada Geese circling over the valley today, it was a shocker seeing them in December. They are usually all gone by October.

They stick around here year 'round. Coming home from work, there was a beautiful sunset, and flying through the middle, a flock of Cans. It looked like something from ET.

in upstate new york, we never once had a christmas without snow on the ground in twenty years. thing is, unless we had a FRESH snowfall shortly before xmas, the holiday would be as brown and dingy looking as if there were no snow at all. the slush and the dirt dredged up by the snow plows would leave tall muddy brown snow drifts, and there would be wide swaths of ugly brown snowdirt covering most of the xmas landscape. so our hopes were always for a new snowfall just in the "nick of time"....

Except for on TV and in movies and photos, I've not seen snow for 40 years! I don't miss the messy, cold, wet, trouble causing stuff!

The sun didn't show up here until almost 11am.

We dodged the snow bullet Thursday and Friday, but have had quite a bit of rain in the day and freezing temperatures over night. So here's hoping it stays away for awhile longer!
