Around mid-morning the snow stopped and we took them out for a walk and a play. They love the snow, as you can see from these pictures. That's my 13 year old Maggie frolicking like a pup.
I enjoy it too, for its photographic possibilities.
But the poor little birds are really suffering. We've refilled the birdseed feeder twice today and it's very well attended.
Then there are the poor little hummingbirds (which are really not adapted to this weather at all). We feed them a stronger syrup solution this time of year and we have to bring it into the house every few hours to warm it up. I hope they make it through the night.
It's 25 degrees F out there now and will dip lower overnight. Fortunately it's supposed to warm up tomorrow and we'll have rain on Friday. Snow days never last too long here.
