A Rainy Start to Break

9 Mar

We finally have managed to get our temperatures above freezing!  Yay!  Of course, we have major rain with it.

Pistol and Antigone are the white shadows in the building.

It is a lot of rain.  And there’s a lot of wind.  I suppose I should be grateful it’s not sixteen inches of snow with those howling winds.

But we are all ready for some sunshine.


I think the water on top of the snow has been hard for the wild birds.  Even without having been feeding the birds all winter, lots of them showed up today.  (I did put more dog food out for them.)

I even had three wild turkeys go by in the corn field.

And then it turned to snow.  But we’re supposed to get back up to warmer weather and more rain for much of the week.  Sigh…

Hopefully, the rain and warm weather will at least get rid of the snow.  Then we will be in mud season!

    What lovely visitors you have, Teresa. I expect you have some mud with all that rain.

      We still have snow, so it’s slush, ice and snow right now. I am guessing it will be mud by the end of the week.

    I’m sorry you’re still having such nasty weather. It has warmed up here, and nearly all of our 12″-18″ of snow is melted. We’ve all had enough of it!! Sadly, there are still some people who still don’t have power! It’s been two weeks since the storm hit. Unfortunately, we don’t seem to have as many Anna’s hummingbirds as we had before. We’ve been feeding them for several years.

    I enjoyed your cardinal pictures.

      I’m sure the cold was hard on the hummingbirds. Sorry to hear you don’t have as many. I am amazed at the number of cardinals I’ve seen in the last two days.
