Uh Oh!

We've gotten lots of snow in the last 24 hours. At one point it was coming down at the rate of about 3 inches per hour. Ken's snow blown twice and I've cleared the porches off at least four times.
Well this morning, it finally quit. We're now in a winter wonderland ....and not too cold either. So I went out to take some photos.
Come on with me....we'll go thru the gate Hope your boots are high ones. Ken blew out a path last night, but the snow was still ankle deep and off the path it'd be up to your calves.
.....and past the feeders which are normally bustling with activity. See the woodpecker? He's one of 4 kinds that visits.
.... past our fence of evergreens
We're almost at the shore.....and there he is!! Walking away as usual Apparently the little stream at the edge of our property has not yet frozen over
I phoned the wildlife sanctuary but they can't do anything because the lake is not yet frozen enough to hold a person nor open enough to allow boat travel.
I'm sending Ken out for some cracked corn and a bale of straw. I'm not sure what else I can do.


  1. Maybe this advice will help.

  2. many thanks Karin; much appreciated! Woke up to -24C this morning. There may be a goosenapping sooner than expected.


Always love hearing from you....
