Yesterday morning we woke up to cold and beautiful scenery. Overnight the temperature had dropped to -16 (F). Apparently we had had fog and the cold temps caused it to freeze. It covered everything in beautiful little white flakes–not quite snow and not quite frost.
Later in the morning, it looked as if it were snowing even though the sky was deep blue and cloudless. It was actually the frozen frost falling from the trees. I, of course, videoed it. The white flakes were beautiful against the blue sky.
Tuesday morning I watched a squirrel try to access one of our bird feeders. Two times I watched him fall off the feeder in a cloud of snow. I decided to video his antics, but by then he had figured out how to reach the seeds. With the cats, Danny, the birds, and the squirrels, life here is never dull.
